Question: i reinstalled yahoo on my ipad and now my 134 notes are missing. could only find a couple in gmail account

I reinstalled Yahoo on my IPAD because it was locked up. I discovered my 134 notes are gone. I did not know notes had anything to do w Yahoo. Perhaps it is a coincidence. I checked my gmail account in safari, as advised by others, but could only find 8 notes. I do not have a "recover notes tab on my notes page. I have important documents pasted into notes. Can anyone help? Thanks very much

iPad 2 Wi-Fi, iOS 10.1, Not positive which iOS 10 version

Hi. Many mail providers, like gmail, include a notes feature. These notes are independent of the Apple Notes app, although they may be synced with the other server. It sounds like your missing notes were created in your Yahoo account, maybe even in the Yahoo app. Have you tried logging in to your Yahoo account in the browser? Maybe you can find the notes there.


Incidentally, when an app locks up, you can usually fix it by force quitting it; push it off the app switcher screen. That's a lot less violent than removing the app and reinstalling it.
