"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.

Developer's original description available here
ColorNote® is a simple and awesome notepad app. It gives you a quick and simple notepad editing experience when you write notes, memos, e-mails, messages, shopping lists and to-do lists. Taking notes with ColorNote® Notepad is easier than any other notepad or memo pad app.

* Notice *
- If you cannot find the widget, then please read the FAQ below.
- When you're finished using the notepad, an automatic save command preserves your individual note.

* Product Description *
ColorNote® features two basic note taking formats, a lined-paper styled text option, and a checklist option. Add as many as you want to your master list, which appears on the app's home screen each time the program opens. This list may be viewed in traditional ascending order, in grid format, or by note color.

- Taking a Note -
Serving as a simple word processing program, the text option allows for as many characters as you're willing to type. Once saved, you can edit, share, set a reminder, or check off or delete the note through your device's menu button. When checking off a text note, the app places a slash through the list's title, and this will be displayed on the main menu.

- Making To-do List or Shopping List -
In the checklist mode, you can add as many items as you'd like and arrange their order with drag buttons activated in the edit mode. After the list is finished and saved, you may check or uncheck each line on your list with a quick tap, which will toggle a line slash. If all items have been checked, then the list's title is slashed as well.

* FAQ *
Q: How do you put a sticky note widget on the home screen?
A: Go to the home screen and hold down your finger on an empty space and choose widget, Color Note will then be desplayed so you can stick on the page.

Q: Why don't the widget, the alarm and notes remider functions work?
A: If the app is installed on the SD card, your widget, reminder, etc. will not work properly because Android doesn't support these features when installed on an SD card! If you have already moved the app to an SD card, but want those features, then you have to move the app back on the device and reboot your phone.

Settings - Applications - Manage Applications - Color Note - Move to Device

Q: Where are backed up notes data on the SD card?
A: '/data/colornote' or '/Android/data/com.socialnmobile.dictapps.notepad.color.note/files' on SD card

Q: I forgot my master password. How can I change it?
A: Menu → Settings → Master Password → Menu Button → Clear Password. You will lose your current locked notes when you clear the password!

Q: How can I create todo list note?
A: New - Select checklist note - Put items - Save. Tap an item to strikethrough.

    I can't figure it out either. I've synced my ColorNote notes with my Gmail, but I still have no idea what that means.
