Cool App of the Day: ColorNote

If you're one of those people who needs a "to do" reminder to keep your life organized then this app is perfect for you. It's very practical because of it's simple and straight to the point functionalities. ColorNote is a notepad/sticky note application. The cool thing about it is you can stick either a simple sticky note reminder or a full "check list" reminder right on your home screen, making it hard for you to miss your reminders. No more writing on your hand so you won't forget to buy that bar of soap on your way home from work. Here are some of the functions I find useful with this app.

Notes List

Once you open the app you can easily add an infinite amount of reminders, notes, and checklists on the main menu by a simple press of the "+" button. The list can be sorted by created time, modified date, alphabetical order, or by color. Yes, you can assign each note with a different color of your choice and the color chosen will be the color of the sticky note widget on your home screen (see picture above). This is also helpful in using the colors as level of importance, or if you're a fun person the colors are fun to play with =).

Check List

One of the functions I find very useful is the checklist. The checklist can be used for a list of things. It can be used for monthly bills reminder, grocery shopping list, to do list, or simply a list of things to bring on your trip, and it has made my life a little easier. It's very simple to add items on your check list. Once a check list is created on the main menu, you simply open the list and click on the pencil icon on the top right corner of the screen. This will allow you to modify your list and enables you to add items to it. Not the order that you want your items to be? Not a problem, the items can easily be rearranged by simply dragging it up or down to a spot of your choice. The list can also be added on your home screen as a widget (see picture above) to easily keep track of things you've done and what still needs to be done.

Widgets can be easily added on your home screen by long pressing on the phone's screen and selecting "ColorNote" under the list of widgets. Here you are given 2 size choices for the widget you want to add. A 1X1 widget, which is a simple sticky note on your home screen, or a 2x2 widget which is used for a check list that you have created.

This is one of the apps created with simplicity but with full functionality. The developers put a lot of thought on this app to make it very user friendly while providing a full range of usability.

HERE is a link of the application. Make sure to check it out!
