"Don't try to remember it by heart: write a note down"

Reviewed by / May 23, 2011

ColorNote is a notepad app with which you can put post-it in your screen as a reminders, ideas or whichever use you like to give to it.

ColorNote is a simple notepad app. It gives you an editing notepad where you can write notes, e-mail, messages, shopping list, date reminders, etc. Even when there's a default notepad in Android which does the same, ColorNote has some extra features that overcomes it. The main of these extra features is the Sticky Note Widget, that's it, you will be able to stick your notes on your main screen. This is something that you can't do with the default app.Likewise, ColorNote permits organize your schedule in calendar, password lock/unlock a note (not really useful from our point of view, unless you want to write down your secret lover's birthday), save backup notes to sd storage, and has a powerful reminder: time alarm, all day, repetition. Of course it also has the basic features included in the default app like organize notes by color, quick memo, search notes, and notes sharing (SMS, e-mail, Twitter)

ColorNote has been developed by Notes, an emerging developer who has launched some apps on the market, all of them related to tools that makes our life easier: clocks, flashlight, notes, translator...

If you're not a big user of the default notes app, you will find ColorNote useless. But if you are one of those that needs to write your ideas or reminders down, this one offers extra-features that overcomes the Android default notes app.
