    Hi guys

    I'm looking to purchase an app that'll allow me to stick 'post-it' stickers on my home screens or desk tops. I want to type quick reminders to my self and post them visibly on my home screens (ie, i dont want to specifically have to open an app to view them)

    Any suggestions?

    Thank you

    I think there is a post it note app in the app store not sure if this is what you are looking for but it is there.

    There is an app I've used called "BugMe!" It's $1.99 (USD) in the App Store. With it, you can create notes that you can save on your home screen (typed or handwritten ... or pictures). In addition, you can set up alarms so that the notes can be used as active reminders.

    It's a pretty cool app. Take a look at it and see if this is what you mean.

    Evernote will give me desktop stickers like post-it reminder notes?

    Not that I'm aware of. And I have Evernote. You can see stuff in the app like notebooks on the iPad's full screen, but you can't save a bookmark to your homepage.

    Wouldn't that be cool! I'm going to look at the settings anyway, but I'm sure the answer is no.

    Downloaded it. Works, but Jeez what a PITA. Prime example of the workarounds required for simple tasks in iOS compared to Android. In order to put it on your home screen, you have to have internet access to upload the sticky note to the developer's server. Then you go to Safari and save the note to your homescreen from Safari. (BTW, the instructions are incorrect, telling you to use + to add the note to your homescreen. I assume that's the way it works on an iPhone, but not on the iPad.) An equivalent approach in Android would be a drop down that simply places the note as a widget on a homescreen.

    Sorry for the rant, but from time to time Apple's ridiculous and crippling restrictions imposed by the "walled garden" application architecture just drives me up the wall.
