Ever since the introduction of iOS 6, the iPhone and other iOS devices such as the iPad and iPod Touch have been closely integrated with Facebook. You can easily share webpages, videos, and posts you find online directly with your Facebook friends and it is all native to iOS 6. You can also share photos and videos to your Facebook wall directly from the native Photos application. You can even post your Facebook status via Siri.

 

One love-it or hate-it feature of the iPhone’s native Facebook integration is the ability to source Facebook-friend data into the iPhone contact list. The problem until recently with bringing in your Facebook friends’ data to your iPhone contacts is the clutter that this brings to your iPhone address book. New contact entries containing little more than Facebook nickname information are created and added to the iPhone Contacts app.

 

 

In June, Facebook announced a fix with an update to the Facebook iOS app. Instead of creating extra contact entries without useful contact info, Facebook now only sources data to already existing contacts on the iPhone. All new contact entries created via Facebook contact sync were now automatically removed from the iPhone contacts list.

 

The fix was met with an even larger confusion by iPhone Facebook users who woke up in the morning realizing that half or more of their previous contact list was gone. In any case, the deleted contact entries were only the ones created by Facebook on your iPhone which contained little to nothing more than the person’s Facebook profile name (nickname).

 

However, if you would still like to opt out from Facebook’s integration with iPhone’s address book, here is how to delete Facebook friends from iPhone’s contacts list.

 

1. On the iPhone, navigate to Settings > Facebook

 

 

2. Place the Contacts switch from ON to OFF

 

 

3. That’s it; you just unlinked Facebook integration from your iPhone address book.

CopyTrans Contacts, a multi-featured PC tool designed to manage iPhone contacts, notes and calendars has announced it goes on sale for 24 hours celebrating the release of Star Trek Into Darkness movie.

 

The sale will be preceded by a retweet event between May 15th and May 16th at 4PM New York time directly on the CopyTrans twitter page which will decide the final discount rate:

 

The rules of the game are simple. The more retweets collected between May 14th at 3PM and May 15th at the same time, the higher the discount rate for the announced sale. The rate of discount could grow up to ninety per cent provided enough total retweets were counted.

Transferring iCloud notes to your iPhone or your PC is mission impossible if you are trying to use conventional Apple tools. I recently found a simple method to bring notes from my “iCloud” account to “On My iPhone” account.

 

To transfer my iCloud notes to my “On My iPhone” account, I used a small Windows tool called CopyTrans Contacts. You can download the program from here:

 

1. Download and run the program. Connect your iPhone to your computer

 

2. Let all of your iPhone data load up in the main program window and click on the Notes icon on the left-hand side. Your iPhone notes will be listed

 

3. You will also be prompted to log in to your iCloud account. Enter your Apple ID and password associated with your iCloud account and click on the “Login” button

 

 

4. Your iCloud notes will now also get listed in the program’s main window. Your iCloud notes will be designated by a small cloud icon to the right

 

5. You will now need to export your iCloud notes to your computer. To do so, simply select all of your iCloud notes (check the boxes on the left of each note entry) and click on the “Export selected” button

 

 

6. A new window will open asking you where to save your iCloud notes. Select a location which you can easily access – for example your PC Desktop. Your iCloud notes will be exported to your computer in the form of individual HTML files

 

 

7. Next, import the HTML files back to your iPhone by clicking on the “Import notes” button

 

 

8. Your iCloud notes will now be imported directly to your “On My iPhone” account

 

 

So far, this is the only method I know of to bring iCloud notes to “On My iPhone” account.
