Most popular feedback for Post It

I use Post-It notes pretty frequently in my classroom, whether I have them in groups or want their response to a question individually. Sometimes, I would have students respond to a question on a post-it note and then come up to put it on the whiteboard. But after they go back to their seats, it is a bit small to see everyone's responses clearly, so that's where this app comes to play very nicely. I could, at that point, take a picture of the different ideas on the board (in the Post-It Plus app) then display it on my projector via Apple TV (on my iPad). I could then brainstorm and move things around live and seek my students input without having to read each one aloud. Another awesome way to use this app in the classroom is in a multiple group brainstorming session.

About Post It

Post-it® Brand has helped people be more productive, communicate better, and more creative for over 40 years. These goods are now ubiquitous, yet their origins were uncertain. The Canary Yellow phenomenon taught us that patience is just as vital as inspiration when bringing a concept to reality. BEGINNING: Discovery 3M scientist Spencer Silver was studying adhesives. In the process, he discovered a light adhesive that didn't adhere strongly. "As a researcher, I developed novel adhesives. We wanted bigger, stronger, tougher adhesives." "None of those," answered Silver. Silver identified microspheres that keep their stickiness yet have a "removability property" Gospel-preaching Innovation in Bunsen burner chemistry Silver spent years trying to sell his technology. He still bragged about his invention to coworkers. "I became Mr. Persistent because I wouldn't quit." Art Fry, another 3M scientist, was frustrated. Every Wednesday night while practicing with his church choir, he'd use scraps of paper to mark future hymns. By Sunday, they'd all fallen out of the songbook. He required a non-damaging bookmark. Congratulations! Thinking back to a session on Silver's microspheres, he got his "eureka moment"1 Developing a product with Silver.

Love the app! But there could be some fixes I find myself switching between using this app and notability, but only because there are still some fixes this app can make before I make the permanent switch over. Here is a list of what I think could make this app better: 1. Every time I leave the app, even for a short amount of time, the app restarts and kicks me out of the notebook I was working on which is by far the first bug I think needs to go. 2. A feature that locks images on notebooks so that you don’t accidentally edit the picture when you annotate on top of it 3. Allow changes on notebook templates like line width 4. Include calendar and daily/weekly scheduling templates 5. Allow highlighting on dark mode notebooks. Right now, the highlighter doesn’t come through if you use a dark background notebook which basically makes that feature useless. 6. Give a dotted line writing option for the pen tool 7. Recognize arrows with the “hold for shape” feature of the pen. 8. Be able to select and copy sections of pdfs using the lasso tool and post them into other notebooks 9. When I try to open a document via Noteful, I need to do this action twice because for some reason the first time I share, it doesn’t open a new notebook with the document I want to import. These are just some of the fixes I have noted down this past week of using the Noteful pro version. Overall, I think this app has a lot of potential and already includes features that Notability doesn’t have that I really like. Keep up the good work devs! Can’t wait for future updates!

About Noteful

The iPad and iPhone note-taking app Noteful is produced by Noteful Technologies Ltd. You can test out the free (with certain restrictions) edition first before making the $4.99 one-time purchase. The software Noteful has finally taken the role of Notability in my workflow. Since I stopped using paper in 2017, no other software has been able to do that. To help you comprehend all the dots on the sheet and develop a better ear for the music you listen to and perform, the free Noteful app gives you a few minutes of daily exercise in note reading, ear training, and music theory. With our FRESH Theory approach, topics are broken down into brief, simple lessons that are similar to playing games, allowing you to learn while having fun. The software won't require a subscription once it's available for download and will be free to use. To receive updates about our impending launch, follow us on social media. Although Noteful's concept is straightforward, it has great promise as a foundation for everyday handwritten note-taking. We did it because we wanted a high-quality, effective, and user-friendly app. This is the reason we made the decision to build an entirely new app. We can't wait to tell you about it!

I thought this app would be kind of useless... but it’s been kind of life-changing. I have a color-coded board of 250+ post-its I’m using to organize everything my team is doing at work. I have calendars and lists and reminders, but especially for nebulous ideas, conversation-planning, brain-storming, long-term ideas that I can’t just check off on a list... I love being able to see everything visually (even if it’s kind of giving me heartburn to see 250+ things I have to do). I can even share with my team when I want to. The app is great for note-taking, too. I can organize notes on different research topics or ideas according to subject matter, so I can synthesize from different sources without flipping through a thousand pages in a notebook. The best part is having everything in my phone. Nothing to lose, nothing to flip through, nothing to carry around. There are plenty of color options, but I would love a few more. And I’d like an option to just duplicate a post-it. Sometimes I just need the same idea in more than one place! Or even an option to move a group of post-its to its own board when an idea gets bigger than you thought.

Not only does it handle really well. It supports an assortment of exporting tools. Files types like pdf, csv or even full blown app exports for powerpoint and even Trello for you kanban users out there. I like it a lot actually. Now if you guys created a printer that could be loaded with sticky notes and have the thing print all my cards onto physical cards....we’d be in the best of both worlds. Because now I can still purchase and support physical cards on the fly and be able to just generate a board instantly and I would still be comfortable working on my digital or physical platform. An even better idea would be to have a company that already houses your product, like office depot, offer this ability as a feature for the public. That way we can come in store, win for them and print our boards or cards out as needed with a specialized printer. Numerous wins here. The camera feature already has the other end showed up in case we want to convert to digital from physical. But the reverse is needed to close the loop and make this app fully functional in a more practical setting. Please add to roadmap. I think this would boost revenue on all fronts and could even become the next trend of how notes and boards are made. Post it boards can even be developed with specialized fields in place just for this app. The ability to mass print cards in the stores would be awesome.

It’s a great accompaniment to post-its. Very well designed, and now there’s an easy way to digitize all of those paper post-its, so you can still jot notes down on paper and then quickly photograph them with this up. Aesthetically appealing, and surprisingly well executed. Only thing I can think of is if you could move/copy post-its between boards; and OCR. The iCloud backup is good, but I wish it would be a bit closer to instantaneous if you have this App on multiple devices - I have it on my iPhone and my iPad, I tend to use the iPhone camera and it’s convenient, but I prefer annotating them on my iPad with the pencil. Sometimes there’s a significant lag, yes you can always airdrop them to your other device, but that can create duplicate boards - and for some reason individual post-its don’t airdrop (in post-it board format) and a board can get too large to airdrop, which isn’t super difficult especially if you do what I do and have a board per week of post-it activity (and I use post-its avidly at work); So that’s what I wish they’d fix in one of their updates and adding the other two features mentioned would be nice *hint, hint* to the App developers. But this is fantastic!

Noteful reviews

Best Note App I am loving this note app. I’ve tried all the majors in search of the perfect one for me. Notability and Goodnotes have rested on their laurels, Noteshelf is getting there, while Zoomnotes has everything but is complicated and has a clunky UI. This app has exactly what I want. Here are the standout features for me. 1. Even though it’s feature rich, the UI is simple and easy to use. Navigating, changing settings, and just doing anything in general is so easy and quick. Everything is where you expect it to be. 2. Tags and nested tags as a way to organize notebooks has become a feature I didn’t know I needed. It’s so much better than folder structure. Finding info on a topic across all of your notebooks or individual notebook pages is amazing. They’ve since added folders as well. 3. Layers are awesome. Zoomnotes and others have implemented layers, but they’re just so simple to use with Noteful. There are things the app is missing like handwriting to text conversion or a writing zoom tool (Zoomnotes has the best one if your interested in adding one), but I don’t use those so it doesn’t matter for me. All the other things it does so well trumps the missing features. At 4.99 it’s a bargain.

Love love love this app and the customer service I really like this app! One no subscription, 2 I can back it up to my google drive, 3 there’s a lot of templates built in (they even have storyboard which i needed) and the page can be colored dark through the template, 4 there’s a hands on tutorial that takes you through the examples, 5 there’s a default example of how notes could look included, 6 the notes can have layers that’s sooo dope, 6.5 you can open multiple notebooks and keep them in tabs, and 7 the ui is mad decent! I really love this app. I sent them feedback about 1 thing they already had and something I’d like and they were amicable about it, which I appreciated. If there’s a way to make custom templates ,brushes, or stickers I’d love a tutorial .

The potential to be better than GoodNotes and Notability Combined As a medical student, this app has surpassed my expectations. Although it is missing some key features seen in other note taking apps, the features included already are refined and intuitive. I would technically give this app 4 stars, but the extra star is for the potential I see happening within the next couple of months for two reasons. The company is very receptive on ideas and additions you would like to see in the app and, judging by the version history, they have been adding features and improvements monthly (at times weekly). Although it hasn’t replaced my other main note taking apps yet, I paid for the app to support the developer and I could see it becoming my primary note taking app in the coming months! Things I would like see in the app include - ability to search words in documents from the main menu - handwriting search function - auto backup to other cloud drive services - dark mode - import personal templates - ability to change pressure sensitivity of apple pen (not as essential as the other features mentioned)
