FreePost-it is a brand name, but it’s so popular that it has become a generic term for any kind of sticky note. The name is ubiquitous for little paper sticky notes, and now Post-it is taking on the digital age with the new iOS app Post-it Plus. There are plenty of sticky note style apps on the App Store that replicate the real world style with a digital interpretation to either type, or write on. Post-it Plus goes a different direction with an innovative approach that relies on your device’s camera to turn your physical Post-it notes into digital copies.
All you have to do is launch the app, capture a picture of a Post-it note, and then that note appears in the app. You can capture up to 50 Post-it Notes at once, and then have digital copies to easily go over right on your iOS device. The app lets you organize the notes into different categories, and also offers alignment options over the scattered nature of Post-its on your desk. You can view notes full screen, and then share any, or all with Dropbox as a PDF, image zip, Powerpoint, or Excel file. There’s also collaboration potential to let others add Post-it notes to a digital board with their own photos of notes. The app is obviously made to still have a focus on using Post-it notes rather than replacing them, so it’s a bit unnecessary, but a great move by 3M. It’s also well put together to make the process as easy as possible with superb note recognition.
Post-it Plus (Free, Universal) is a neat utility to let you take Post-it notes with you rather than having them stuck where ever they are.
