iOS' Notes app is about to become a whole lot more useful
posted by Paul K. / Jun 08, 2015, 4:51 PM
Notes will finally receive a toolbar, reminiscent of the one found on third party apps like Evernote. It will allow the user to quickly access formatting, create checklists, or attach images. A fourth option allows for doodling, which, if combined with an active stylus, we imagine would become a favorite among people who actually like to jot down their notes (an allure factor of Samsung's own S Note).
Adding links to Notes will also become easier, and prettier looking, as Safari will be able to send a website directly to your note (via Open in...), which will result in a pretty link, with a thumbnail, appearing in one's note. The separate notes will get their own thumbnails, exported from the attached pictures or links to make them easier to find.

Not exactly ripped off, just implementing similar functionality on their notes app. Apple likes to take "inspiration" from other smartphone features which is completely okay, music artists sample music and write covers of existing songs and can sell it and you wouldn't call an artist shameless if he paints the same landscape as another. It brings the same functionality to iPhones, which will probably be something that your mum plays with a couple of times when she is planning a get together or something. At the end of the day it isn't really going to affect the sales of the galaxy note series since it's a relatively niche group anyway.

So let me get this straight, when any Google or Samsung copies one of apples concepts or functions, you say there was an app or widget like that on android already and it's not copying Apple but adding functuality from another app or a custom rom. But when Apple is adding a concept from android or AEM, it is direct copy and a shame on Apple. Well let me put your post out of its misery - there was many note apps that allowed scribbling before android was something you heard about. There's are also tons of hailbreak features that android has coppied or inspired from. Can we please stop this, I'm trying my best not to get back into trolling - but this forces me to.

Don't do it. It isn't worth it. A good majority of the trolls and anti-Apple gang are either ignorant of the past or just plain stupid. I'm not saying they don't exist in the Apple community, but that number is far smaller in comparison. It hurts people's feelings when you purchase an "inferior" product with your own money. Civilization as we know it wouldn't exist had it not been for people drawing inspiration from one another.

First smartphones to employ the use of a stylus. Pay close attention to the image on the right hand side showing a stylus drawing of the United States.
They made the Notes application more feature rich for iPhone users. I would call that a good thing, especially with it being native to the device rather than a 3rd Party app. It will also work very well between all the devices in the ecosystem from iPhone to Mac.
