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.

Even a technophile can miss the tactile feeling of writingon occasion — or maybe you’re still one of those people who writes faster than he types. In either case, Penultimate is a good solution for users who miss taking notes, doodling in the margins or drawing the occasional diagram for guidance. You can organize your thoughts into several notebooks with an infinite amount of pages. You can share notes via e-mail or send them to your Kindle, Dropbox or Evernote account. Your notes will be better looking if you use an optional stylus. 99 cents, for the iPad.

Post It reviews

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!

Penultimate reviews

Penultimate, used in conjunction with Apple Pencil on the iPad Pro 9.7, is hard to beat. It literally looks like i am using a sheet of paper and a pen to take notes in a notebook. I wish that it had sub folders for the notebooks as this would greatly help organize my thoughts when writing novels. Right now, I am using penultimate to create a children's book for my son. Using Procreate, Pencil, and the Smart Keyboard, it is the most seamless creating tool i have ever used. Granted, I haven't used this app with any other stylus. I have used other note taking apps with other styli and I have to say that Apple Pencil is the best ever. So maybe it is the pencil that makes this app so great. I have not yet felt the need to try any other note taking app because Penultimate satisfies most of my needs. Four stars because it meets those needs. I'm not feeling pressed to buy anything. Highly recommend in conjunction with pencil.

I use this app every morning for journaling and note taking for 4 months now. As a whole The app works pretty well, especially with the Apple Pen. There are a couple very annoying features though that brought me to write this review. 1. When I pop between apps by swiping up in the iPad (like readings I am going through), when I come back to this app it will sometimes put me back 2-3 pages in my notes from where I left off. This happens about 60% of the time and really gets annoying when you have to keep popping back and forth. 2. You can’t rearrange anything for better organization. Or at least I haven’t found a way and have looked for a long while. What I mean is, you can create folders to house similar documents but you can’t rearrange the order of the folders so that the most commonly used or similar topics would be grouped by each other. They just become scattered without any rhyme or reason. Also heaven forbid you spend an hour taking notes on something in the wrong folder/location, which I have done a couple times now. And that is unfortunately now where those documents live. There is no way of moving it to the correct folder, which in my opinion is almost a deal breaker for a note taking app. If this is possible it is not easily found in the app.

It's good but I keep finding things I wish it did I use penultimate to take notes for my classes on my iPad Pro. It's nice to just be able to write, not type notes. But it's not perfect. The two major things I wish it did was zoom in on pictures. I often times insert screen shots from PowerPoint or online and when I go back to review my notes I am always trying to use two fingers to zoom in on the picture which is just a feature the app does not do. I also wish it allowed me to arrange my notes in whatever order I want. I have my app organized so that each class gets its own 'noteboook' but when I open the notebook I don't get organize the 'sub notebooks' in my own order, the app automatically organizes them in order of most recently opened. My other big compliment and this one is really annoying! When I double tap my home button to switch between apps to say take a screen shot and then go back to penultimate the app opens at a page 2-3 pages above where I left it. This is probably the most disruptive feature the app is lacking to note taking in class. Maybe Evernote can make this happen in the next update. I really hope so! This app has so much potential and with a little more care it could be perfect
