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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful! March 24, 2011

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars BEWARE OF THE UPDATES!!!!! June 7, 2011
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!

3.0 out of 5 stars Beware of the updates, else its good May 27, 2011
By A Customer
Verified Purchase
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)

1.0 out of 5 stars loading issues and notepad issues July 4, 2012
Verified Purchase
This app frequently fails to load (requiring "force close" or "wait") for functionality. By the time I wait or close and reload, I could have access to data via hard copy not made (in lieu) of the app. The calendar on wall never requires I wait or reload it to view contents.

Also, cannot use "list" feature when away from wifi. Again, being green (cutting out use of extraneous paper) is not an option with this particular app due to such.

I have not investigated this app beyond those two features as I did not feel motivated to locate another function I would enjoy or need that would ultimately be useless and/or difficult or impossible to access when desired.

Not recommended.

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
