★★★ Suggestions, Bug Reports, etc? ★★★
Honestly, development is glacially slow. I don't have anywhere near as much time as I used to to work on hovernote.
Also I am aware that some of the settings do not persist across app restarts and will fix that at some point.
The app is now free due to the new requirement for me to have my physical address on the app store page if I want to continue selling it.
If you have any questions please send me an email: hovernote@mjlim.net. Emails responded to on a best-effort basis.

    what I was looking for! The things I want to stay "in my face" will, without being intrusive. I've tried a lot of these kinds of apps. Some are too confusing, or too BIG. But this app does exactly what I want perfectly. Thanks!

    Changed from 5 to 3 since I'm no longer able to save the notes. It is a great concept and I like being able to get to the app quickly.... but for some reason am no longer able to save the file.

    Simply one of the best apps I have. I can jott notes here and share them with the desired app while never interrupting what I was doing in the first place. If you want to be able to multi-task on your device here's a great add-on.

    Can't believe how often this comes in handy! ...thank you for producing this. ...only thing that I feel could be improved is the selection method. Would love start and end selection to be replaced by standard android mechanism. Great tool though. Thanks again.
