    • Siri can take dictations to Notes
    • Notes does checklists!
    • Notes can be structured or unstructured for e.g. titles are totally optional
    • Markdown style Lists
    • Links/Bookmarks can be dragged in from browser and shows up as a little box with a picture and title. Good representation.
    • iOS lets you put sketches into the notes. Fun to draw.
    • Photos can go right in. Also has a photo browser.
    • All those can be put in the same note
    • Keyboard Shortcuts for formatting as well.

    All in all, it deserves another try.
