The old Notes application was very appealing to me as I like the look of a yellow lined notepad. Why did they change it, can I get the grid lines back? Or is there an alternative?
My sentiments exactly. Bring back gridlines. Also, the email icon in the bottom right corner does not work. It does nothing!
Responding to the original question ... Those grid lines are gone. Unless Apple changes in a future iOS version, we don't get them any more.
To Hovsep A... I guess the Notes screen without grid lines may be looking clean, but I and some other users do not want a clean-looking notepad but a useable and more readable notepad.
I don't like the current Notes without grid lines!
the Notes app used to resemble a lined yellow notepad. Now, there's a much cleaner off-white screen.
