Apple has apparently cooked up Web-based versions of its Notes and Reminders apps, as seen in the latest iCloud beta.

Accessible via iCloud from a PC or Mac, the new apps seem similar to their mobile iOS and Mountain Lion counterparts, according to a review by 9to5Mac.

The Web-based Notes app lets you enter and organize notes and then e-mail them using the iCloud e-mail. The Reminders app allows you to add reminders, attach notes to them, and schedule the date and time for you to be alerted.

Other online surprises are in store for iCloud users.

The latest beta includes a new Find my iPhone app that taps into the Lost Mode feature. New to iOS 6, Lost Mode lets you send a phone number to your lost iPhone where hopefully an honest citizen can find it and call you back.

The Web-version of Find my iPhone also displays a battery status icon, according to MacRumors, providing a countdown on how much juice your iPhone has left until it conks out.

Currently available only for registered developers, the new iCloud Web apps could pop up when iOS 6 debuts early this fall.
