iOS 4.2: Change Note's Font, Style and Color iOS devices
Before the release of iOS 4.2, you may have been disappointed with the default font used in the iPhone's "Notes" app.

iOS 4.2 allows you to choose between three different fonts. If you like using other fonts families, BOLD, ITALIC, underlines, strike-outs AND COLOR in your iPhone Notes, you can.

I have tested this with MobileMe, but not with plain old iTunes syncing.
  1. Create a Note on your iPhone.
  2. Open the Note on your Mac and change the font's family, style, size or color.
  3. There is no step 3!
Admittedly, this is kind of klunky, but it works. P.S. Don't use yellow—it blends right in with the yellow Note paper's color.

Not unique to iOS4.2

To be fair, the ability to use styling on the Mail.app Notes then sync to your phone has been around for a bit. The only new addition in iOS4.2 was the font selection form the Settings page.

For those people simply interested in globally changing the typeface, the Notes option on the main Settings page on an iPhone brings up a page where one can choose among three faces: Chalkboard, Helvetica and Marker Felt (the default). No color or size options there...

This has always worked, even with previous releases of iOS.
Pretty much for as long as Notes syncing existed.

You should never use yellow anyway. I don't there is any color background for which yellow text is readable on top of it.

Yellow text can look decent on a black background, but it really shines on a blue background. I really liked working with yellow on blue in text mode in the old days. That's right, text mode, when the alternatives on my 16K graphics card were 320x200 with four colors (black, cyan, magenta, and white) or 640x200 black & white!

Ahh, good times :)
