You can sync notes on your iPhone or iPad to your iCloud account, but did you know you can also sync notes with Gmail? You can add your Gmail account to the Notes app and access any notes added to that account on any computer–Mac or Windows.

First, if you haven’t already, you must add your Gmail account to your iOS device. You can accomplish that by going 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.

Then, to sync notes with your Gmail account, you need to enable Notes for that account. To do this, tap the Settings icon on the Home screen.

To create a note that will be synced with your Gmail account, tap Notes under the Gmail account name in the Notes app.

Note that syncing notes with your Gmail account is a one-way sync. You can edit the notes under the Gmail account in the Notes app on your iOS device, but not in your Gmail account. You can only view them. However, you can delete notes under the Notes label in your Gmail account and they will be deleted on your iOS device as well.

If you disable Notes in your Gmail account on your iOS device, any notes under that account in the Notes app are deleted on your iOS device, but they remain in your Gmail account. If you re-enable Notes for your Gmail account, the notes in that account are synced back to your iOS device.

Notes created in a Gmail account in the Notes app are only synced with your Gmail account, not with iCloud. Notes you want backed up to your iCloud account must be created under the iCloud account in the Notes app. However, you can also move notes from your Gmail account to your iCloud account just like you can move notes from On My iPhone to iCloud. You can also find out more about using the Notes app to organize your thoughts.
So, this method isn’t really an alternative to syncing your notes with iCloud, but if you use Gmail a lot and want convenient access to your notes on your computer (Mac or Windows), this method can be useful.

You can also use Syncios Free Mobile Manager to backup your notes .
