Stickyboard 2 - App Review



Post-it notes were all the rage but digital technology seems to have slightly overshadowed them. The main reason is that we can be better organised with electronics than we could with paper... or so we might believe.

Stickyboard 2 allows you to have the best of both worlds; the obviousness of multicoloured post-its, and be automatically organised.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
Apart from the sample set that greets you, a simple white board is where you start.

There are few controls (just as it should be):

Notes
This gives you access to a number of different coloured notes, as well as 3 font sizes. Once you have picked, double tapping on the screen gives you an easily resizable and editable text note. Just use the keyboard to enter the note (this makes sure you can reread it later).

Pencil
Pick from one of eight colours and have a freehand tool for writing or drawing. Anything you do will always appear behind any notes, and you cannot freehand a note.

Eraser
Select this to either use exactly as an eraser on any pencil note you have made or the 'Erase All Ink' option which will remove all your freehand notes and markers.

Forward
Here you can email a copy of your whole Stickyboard, either as text or a pdf.

Undo/Redo
This will allow you to correct or 'stet' the last entry you made.

Gallery
This gives you access to all the boards you have created, and is also the place to name individual boards.

The best part is however not quite so obvious (a case of RTM here). If you use one finger to engulf multiple notes, you can then simply three finger swipe and the notes are neatly ordered; you certainly can't do that with paper.

Cost
The App is absolutely free.

Indispensability
If you already have a desk/screen full of Post-its, this could well be a better solution. On the other hand, if you are sticky averse then, this is probably not going to be your cup of tea.

Dependability
Stickyboard 2 requires iOS 3.2 or higher, and only works on an iPad.

Security
There is no data sharing, unless you choose to email a pdf or text version of your board.
