IPad App Review: Sticky Notes

Ipad app Sticky Notes Post It Notes app icon

 

Sticky Notes on the App Store here

Cost: Free

An app that seems silly and gimmicky – but is actually VERY useful!

Great if you use your iPad as a second screen / organiser

And these post-its won’t fall off your monitor!!

Possible Uses

  1. Daily todo lists – different notes/colours for different groups (ie email, phone calls, errands)
  2. Presentation notes – one for each slide, then email or share on Twitter afterwards
  3. Organisation planning

Good Points

  • Easy to use – enough options to make it useful, not not too many that it becomes confusing/messy
  • Choice of colours – good choice of note and font colours, so you can categorise easily
  • Font choices – not as useful as colours, but it’s still nice to use your favourite font for your notes
  • Font size –  changes with a WYSIWYG bar not with a font-size drop down (so you can see how it looks)
  • Scale – good use of 2-finger scaling of each note. Font increases as note does
  • Easy to edit fonts afterwards – changing font changes whole note so easy to edit
  • Email feature – grabs of whole board and individual notes can be shared
  • Twitter share – share individual note or entire board via Twitter

Things to Improve On

  • Can’t sync to another device (so maybe not so useful for shopping lists etc if you’re mobile)
  • Fiddly to delete individual notes – you need to edit note, then click cross then confirm delete
  • No way to clear all notes – if you’re using if for lots of temporary projects, you can’t bulk delete notes
  • Copy Notes – no way to copy notes, which would be useful if you had a template for a particular note

Extras

  • Photos and camera through in app purchase – 69p (incl add photos and save to photos)
  • Unlimited page with upgrade – 69p
