ColorNote® is a simple and awesome notepad app. It gives you a quick and simple notepad editing experience when you write notes, memos, e-mails, messages, shopping lists and to-do lists. Taking notes with ColorNote® Notepad is easier than any other notepad or memo pad app.

* Notice *
- If you cannot find the widget, then please read the FAQ below.
- When you're finished using the notepad, an automatic save command preserves your individual note.

* Product Description *
ColorNote® features two basic note taking formats, a lined-paper styled text option, and a 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 grid format, or by note color.

- Taking a Note -
Serving as a simple word processing program, the text option allows for as many characters as you're willing to type. Once saved, you can edit, share, set a reminder, or 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, and this will be displayed on the main menu.

- Making To-do List or Shopping List -
In the checklist mode, you can add as many items as you'd like and arrange their order with drag buttons activated in the edit mode. After the list is finished and saved, you may check or uncheck each line on your list with a quick tap, which will toggle a line slash. If all items have been checked, then the list's title is slashed as well.

Q: How do you put a sticky note widget on the home screen?
A: Go to the home screen and hold down your finger on an empty space and choose widget, Color Note will then be desplayed so you can stick on the page.

Q: Why don't the widget, the alarm and notes remider functions work?
A: If the app is installed on the SD card, your widget, reminder, etc. will not work properly because Android doesn't support these features when installed on an SD card! If you have already moved the app to an SD card, but want those features, then you have to move the app back on the device and reboot your phone.

Settings - Applications - Manage Applications - Color Note - Move to Device

Q: Where are backed up notes data on the SD card?
A: '/data/colornote' or '/Android/data/com.socialnmobile.dictapps.notepad.color.note/files' on SD card

    Color Note is the best note app I've found. Why the 1 star then? Because you asked me to rate it 5 stars. I don't support fake ratings. That's for liars. That aside though, it is a great app. It syncs across devices easy, auto backs up (yes!) has a built in calender and checklist so it's more than just a notepad. And the colors help separate categories well enough. I haven't come across anything better. Enjoy your 1 star rating though. Full Review

    LOVE LOVE LOVE this app (for my Android phone)!!! I love the color coding for notes. It's also seriously cool that i can use this app on my Win laptop and they sync together, making it oh so easy to go back & forth between devices. The only flaw is that I cannot paste pictures and/or diagrams. Perhaps, that ability might come in a later update. Full Review

    Great app, fast, colorful; autosaves. Customisable in many ways such as organisations and colour theme. No variation in font but still fantastic and free! Notes are saved with the date of the last update. In addition, there is a calendar where u can set events, plus checklists can be created. Really handy for writing longer pieces as well as less frequent use :) Full Review

    I have this app on my front page, not a day goes by that I don't use it! I copy Bible Scriptures out of my Bible app and paste them in this app, so I can check them for typo errors, before posting them to Facebook. I have over 3000 friends and have posted at least one word of encouragement every day for over 400 consecutive days ColorNote is the easiest place to do that. The yellow background looks like the legal pads that I used before the internet changed everything and handwriting went into a thing of the past. And my Kroger shopping list works better on ColorNote then ANY app made for that purpose! Thank you ColorNote! Full Review

    A**STOP READING, AND INSTALL IT ALREADY** As lots of us have, I've changed phones for the newest, fastest, biggest, etc etc. This has repetitively been one of the top 3 apps I've reinstalled. Each time I've done so, I have not had a glitch, it worked with each phone AND worked as expected when I tried a different mobile carrier. It updates when instructed and can sync with your email. I have been using this app going on little more than 2yrs not a single issue with it. Great job guys!!! If you don't have it... Install it..... Now... Full Review

    This app is excellent at what it's supposed to do. The interface is simple and intuitive, making note-taking a breeze. I also like how it doesn't require you to create an account so it fully works without an internet connection. One feature I would like to see is the ability to select multiple notes. Its quite cumbersome to delete notes individually. Full Review

    A simple form of keeping the to do list or anything that needs to be stored. The best feature is the cloud storage. I recently lost my old phone and had to reinstall this app in my new phone just to find out that all my data was intact. :).. it was such a huge relief!! This app also lets you keep the notes as a widget on the screen. You can also lock certain notes with a password. Full Review

    Literally the best organization app I've every used! I would honestly be so lost without this app. You can easily make checklists, text lists and reminders for anything you need. Plus, you can easily back up and sync this information to your email or any online storage drive. It's not overly complicated and all the features are simple to use. Whenever I get a new device, this is the first app I install. Full Review

    Someone else gave it 1 star although admitting he liked it and it deserved 5 he just didnt like being asked. To leave a review. Sometimes we need a push to go out of our way to give our opinion. Most people probably dont leave a review even though liking the app. So here is a well deserved 5 stars Full Review

    Really love this app and it helps me to accomplish what I need to do. Thank you! (Added Mar. 2017) Have been using for close to 1 1/2 yrs. and I use it numerous times through out the day. I have highly recommended it to my close friends and they have added it to their phones, as well. 1/8/18 This is still one of my most used apps and I still love it. Full Review

    This app is very useful. You can organize it the way you want, color code, and set reminders. You can also add multiple notes to your home screen, or pin them to your status bar. If you delete something it goes into a trash folder, which you can then decide to "restore" or "permanently delete" when you want to. There is also a calendar and the option to send the note to a different app. I was very happy with it. I have, and will continue to, recommend it to others. Full Review

    It says I have 6 synced notes, but they're nowhere to be found. I'm not even sure what these notes are or what's in them. I don't like having notes in the cloud that I don't know about and/or can't retrieve, let alone SIX of them. I'll look into this some more, but for now, I'm rating the app a 2 because of this issue.

    Love it! Use it daily! Would be the best if it synched with Outlook and/or imported/exported 2 a text file and App2sd. 1/10/18 UPDATE, unfortunately, with the last update, "cloud" backups to Google freeze every time and never complete until I force stop the app, clear cache and restart.

    The App is just all round great! A million times I've been thankful that I have this App for a whole lot of uses I make with it.

    The feature that lets you synch notes across devices is just the best. I haven't lost a single note every time I've changed my phones (yes, plural). Great tool for jotting down events, thoughts, lists, tasks. Good job guys! Full Review

    Andy Bunch Published date: December 16, 2017

    I've found that this app is the best & simplest way to keep track of to do items across platforms from cell phone to tablet. I put in a typical daily schedule and then insert items specific to that day. It keeps items that are not tied to a date in front of me each week and I feel progress checking off items like "garbage out" off the list. Full Review

    Love keeping notes, grocery lists and upcoming events on it. But no reminders available. Would love a menu choice for "grocery items" to add itrm to, and one called "this week's reminders" and one called Recipies to make this week. Have yet to figure out the color coding thing. But use the app daily for misc lists. Full Review

    Best notepad out there. Can organize alot of different ways. Also has a checklist. I use it to write songs. Organizes everything perfect and never runs out of space on the page. Also like that you have to double tab to edit. Reading lyrics while recording and tapping once to open is bad. Lol Full Review

    I simply can't live without it! Many lists, paste recipes, take notes, post reminders, organize and sort everything. This saves my life and keeps everything in memory so I don't have to. However, they need to add a collaboration feature that allows it to be more social... otherwise it is overpowered by apps like Keep which my son introduced me to for coordination purposes.

    Love it's ease of use. I would like crossed out text in the checklist to automatically move to the bottom while automatically sending all unchecked items to the top. Unless I missed it, would like a way to share the same notes with a fellow user, would be another plus. Other than that, it's clean, simple, and definitely recommend it. Full Review
