Phone: iPhone 5s, iOS 9.3.2 Mac: Mac mini, OSX 10.8.5 (Mountain Lion) I am puzzled. I have several email accounts, including gmail and iCloud mail. Using gmail (in the Notes app. on both devices), if I type a note on my Mac, it appears on my phone; and vice versa. If I do the same in iCloud, nothing is transferred — either way, Mac to phone or phone to Mac. A second mystery: notes (in gmail) on my phone stay there indefinitely. Notes in the Notes app. on my Mac spontaneously disappear after a while. Can someone please explain?
