Insight Notes is just like most other iPad apps: when you delete the app, you also delete the app's data that were stored on your iPad. If you want to delete Insight Notes but keep the notes you've written, you have two easy options:
The first option is that you can print your notes. Insight Notes includes AirPrint and allows all users to print their notes.
The second option is that you can use the secure backup and encrypted exporting service to send your notes to yourself electronically. The encrypted exporting service allows you to send up to several hundred notes at the same time. They arrive pre-organized and in PDF format.
Users who delete their notes don't have to worry about residual copies of their notes remaining on the iPad. Your notes data were always encrypted, so any residual files that remain after deletion are still inaccessible.
If you have to do a system restore of your iPad and have an active subscription to the backup and encrypted exporting service, to restore your notes database to Insight Notes all you have to do is re-download Insight Notes from the App Store, select that you are an existing user,* supply the backup server with the email address and server password you created when you first signed up for the backup service, and your encryption code. The server will verify your identity so that you can select your backup database, after which your notes will be downloaded to your iPad once again. (Also note that during this process Apple and the iTunes store will ask you for your Apple ID password twice so that Apple can verify that you have an active subscription.)
While the restore is in progress, we strongly recommend keeping Insight Notes onscreen and your iPad on (do not allow it to go into standby mode). The restore process will proceed as quickly as your connection will allow you to receive data from the internet.
If you do not have a subscription to the backup/sharing service, deleting Insight Notes from your iPad or performing a restore of your iPad will also delete your notes. Due to security concerns and in order to facilitate HIPAA-compliance, Insight Notes does not back up your notes database to iCloud or to your computer via iTunes syncing.
*The screen for existing users that prompts users to input their email, server password, and encryption code is only for users with active backup/subscriptions who are doing a restore.
