Who doesn’t love Post-its! Use them for notes, use them for sweet messages to your significant other, or use them to cover every visible surface in a coworker’s office — the uses are endless! The official Post-it app is here to bridge the gap between the digital and physical and bring you even more use cases for the titular squares of sticky paper.
Everyone’s iPhone comes with the stock Notes app and the App Store is full of endless alternatives. Yet, many still prefer to rely on the tried and true Post-it. They are always convenient and ultra-fast. Whenever you need to jot something down, it is quicker to peel off a bright pink slip of paper than opening the app and typing on your phone.
But why leave it at that? The Post-it app allows you to scan one or a whole whiteboard full of Post-it notes to digitize them on your phone. It will identify each note on its own and create digital versions of those notes. Assuming your handwriting is legible, you’ll be able to search these notes too. If you lay out your notes visually, you can virtually arrange your notes too.
As we are all in the work-from-home era, Post-it lets you share your notes. Start a brainstorming session to share your board with coworkers or classmates. You’ll be able to add notes and they can add notes to your wall too.
All of your notes are endlessly shareable, once digitized into the Post-it app. Share via Trello, PDF, PNGs, through PowerPoint, or maybe just a zip archive of many different notes. Post-it is available for iPhone, iPad, and Mac and your notes sync in the background automatically with iCloud, so no matter your device, your Post-its follow you.
Using the camera to digitize your physical notes is such an ingenious use. Sure, it helps support and encourage the sales of Post-it notes as we move towards a more digital future, but it is also very useful. It shines while working from home, collaborating in the office, or crunching the college term paper. Create reminders, make new digital notes, and much more with this unique — and very specific — app.
But enough about other people's apps.
