The notes application on every iOS device is surely one of the handiest little tools you can carry around. The elegance and style you get with great features are the top-most reasons why iOS users haven’t found a replacement yet. The best part of the iOS ecosystem is the fact that syncing Apple devices together is so much easier and fun. As you know, you can already sync your notes in iOS 9 to your iCloud account, which you can then access on any other Apple device with the flick of a button.

However, with the sweet new features of iOS 9, you can now even sync your beloved notes with your Gmail account, opening a portal to the Android ecosystem as well. While this feature is built-in, it is kind of a pain to get started with. For example, you need to have your Google account already setup on your iOS device. If not, navigate to Settings > Mail, Contact, Calendars > Add Account > Google. Enter the information for the Gmail account you want to add and follow the on-screen instructions. The following procedure will guide you through and make it overall simpler.
