A podcast about all things Macintosh. For Mac geeks, by Mac geeks. Episode 205. In iOS 11 Apple has significantly upped it’s game in the Notes app, especially on the iPad Pro. I thought this would be a good opportunity to deep dive a bit into the Notes app and all it’s features, new and old. We run down everything from creating a simple note to how to scan documents and add annotations and signatures. You also get to be the first hear about the new Maccast Patreon.
