Product Description

Transfer your scrap paper and sticky note habits to the digital world with Color Note. This elegant notepad app allows you to create, manage, and share lists and notes from your mobile device's home screen.

Color Note features two basic note taking formats, a lined-paper styled text option and a traditional checklist option. Add as many as you want to your master list, which appears on the app's home screen each time the program opens. This list may be viewed in traditional ascending order, in a grid format, or by the color of the note.

Taking a Note

Serving as a simple word processing program, the text option allows for as many characters as you're willing to type with your device's virtual or physical keyboard. Once saved, you can edit, share, set a reminder, check off or delete the note through your device's menu button. When checking off a text note, the app places a slash through the list's title, a mark that shows on the main menu.

Making a To-Do List

In the checklist mode, you can add as many items as you'd like and move their order around with the up and down buttons activated in the edit mode. After the list is finished and saved, you may check, and uncheck, each line on your list (from grocery store items to household chores) with a quick tap that generates a line slash. If all items have been checked, the list's title is slashed as well.

Easy to Use and Share

Composing in Color Note is easy, for the app engages with your mobile device's accelerometer to present note taking and viewing options in landscape and portrait modes.

Once you've finished writing up your note or list, share it via e-mail where it will be posted as text, not as an attachment. You may also post it to your favorite social networking site or messaging service.

Each note may also be given a customized time and date reminder that interacts with your phone. Dock the note in your device's operating system toolbar for a constant reminder and quick reference. You can also skip the toolbar option and set up an alarm reminder that interacts with your device's ringer.

Keeping Track of Notes

Losing your lists and notes among your mobile device's numerous folders, files and apps is a non issue with the program. Simply launch Color Note and utilize the program's search field to quickly find the notations you need.

You can also search for a note using the app's home screen sort option that reorganizes your lists alphabetically, by the time they were modified, their color or by the reminder time you customized them with. When opened, each list carries a date and time stamp, along with the amount of time passed since the note was taken, in a small-font header located below the note's title.

When you're finished using the program, an automatic save command preserves your individual note before returning you to Color Note's homescreen. The program also allows you to save your master list with a password option launched from the app's home screen menu.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! March 28, 2011
LOVE LOVE LOVE this program! I use it primarily for its checklist capability, which really helps me manage my "to do" lists while I'm working. I also love the fact that is saves automatically every time I make a change to it. The widget runs smoothly, I enjoy utilizing various note colors for organization, and it is very easy to use. Highly recommended!

I love this simply because it does what it says and I don't have to connect to a 'cloud'. It even has the option for a checklist. Simple to use, too. Great app.

Verified Purchase
this app is great but I updated it like it said it needed to be and all my notes dissapeared! the new version does not save your old notes. on my xoom, the notes were backed up on my internal memory but the only way to open the backups is threw the old app, which is now gone because of the update! im still workin on how to reopen my old notes. Do not update this app if you have something important saved, as I did!

Good memo program with nice features like list thats great for shopping but beware of the updates! They don't save your memos. Ran an update, one of 7 other programs. Got to this one, didn't pay attention & missed this was the only update that didn't say data would be saved. My bad but lost a lot of info. Boo. Stupid not to save memo program data, poor programming techniques.

4.0 out of 5 stars Calendar works well for Kindle Fire January 27, 2012
Verified Purchase
I got this app for my new Kindle (which I love, by the way) mostly for the calendar functionality, so this is what this review is almost entirely about. ColorNote's calendar seems better for me than other more "daily appointment" styled apps because as a college student I'm more interested in having a checklist of things that are due on a particular day rather than my schedule, which doesn't change much once the semester starts. Also I'm a fan of the color coding (and how you can label the colors with your personal use for them) and the ability to cross things off when they are done. These all rock. And it's free, which double rocks.

However: my two main complaints which prevent a fifth star:

> In the calendar view you can only look at one month at a time, so you can't see what's coming up in the next month even if the dates are visible because they are grayed out. For instance, next week Sunday - Tuesday have visible note markers, because it's still January, but Wednesday - Saturday are grayed out and I have to flip to February to see what's going on. The logic behind this escapes me. I still haven't figured out if it's possible to change this.

> Minor complaint which actually really bothers me: The icon stinks. It's grainy and pixellated and makes my Carousel look crummy. I'm kind of a graphics geek so this might not bother other people, but come on guys. It's an icon. It's pretty much the easiest thing to make nice-looking in the app business.

That was a bit long-winded. But I have a lot of opinions about calendars.

1.0 out of 5 stars Must be logged in? August 31, 2011
Verified Purchase
Great ap with one big exception!'
Out and about in my car, I tried to access the "List" on my task bar (android 2.2 on Samsung Infuse). I received message that I must be logged in to the Amazon Ap Store to access the ap. The message appeared in a large window over my list that made it, my list, impossible to read. I was not near wifi. How could I be logged in? Ap was worse than useless since it deprived me of my previous work when I needed it most.

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware of app Tracking October 16, 2011
Verified Purchase
This app will not function properly unless your signed into amazons app store.....and if you kill the app store, your files will be corrupted, at least mine were. I have brought this issue up with amazon to no avail. YOUR being tracked even if you pay for it. How many other amazon app's are tracking you ?....Widgetlocker, Documents to Go (any), NoteEverything, NoteColor, EverNote are just a few. (Kill or force close the app store in settings>applications>manage apps, and open an app..... if the app store restarts or your app won't start its being tracked. (CAUTION: you could lose data)

Why Does ColorNote NOT Sync Properly to Google Tasks?
Colorote will back up your notes online, but they are unviewable (from what I've heard/read). They go in the Google Apps cloud, so if your phone is lost/stolen you can simply enter your google info and retrieve your notes that way. But there is no way to view/edit them through Tasks, which is a... Read More
