Clear Note Widget (Sticky Note App) Now Available For Android Phones

December 18, 2011 in Development, Featured

Yes, you heard it here first. I actually released an Android app.

To be honest, this isn’t my first foray (and probably won’t be the last) into Android. The first was an attempt to make a fun “game” that consisted of the Android mascot running on top of an infinitely-long office building. Or at least running until he (she? it?) crashed into a conveniently-placed, official US Postal Service mailbox.

Needless to say, it wasn’t a very satisfying project and I’ve since toned down my appetite for Android programming greatness.

I did, however, need a decent note-taking application for daily reminders and the like. I had only one real requirement: the app had to let you add a widget on your home screen that actually displayed the note. And believe it or not, I couldn’t find a single one on the Market that did the job right without looking like a cartoony slanted Post-It note.

So finally I decided to just write one myself.

Clear Note Widget is the result. It does one thing and one thing only, which is to let you add and display notes on your home screen. You can customize the look and feel of your widget up to the point where you can make the background completely transparent. Which looks pretty cool.

Here’s some screenshots of the app at work:

Clear Note Widget is 99 cents on Android Market.

Thanks to the Market’s liberal returns policy, you can buy it, try it for 15 minutes, and return it if it doesn’t meet your (arguably high) standards for Sticky Noting.

Hi,I have few questions that I apcerpiate if you could answer please:1-Imagine a case in which none of my profiles are activated automatically (triggered by a rule). Then I activate a profile manually. What happens to the manually activated profile when a rule starts another profile? Will both the manual profile and the one activated by a rule become active at the same time? Is it possible to deactivate the manually activated profile once a rule starts another profile? What would happen in these examples when a profile is defined as the default profile?2-Is there a way to define a rule to activate a profile using not equal to condition (e.g. the phone is not in a specific location)?3-Is it possible to have a longer widget showing the active profile(s)?4-How is it possible to know which rule is active?I’m sorry; some of these questions may seem dumb. However, in the absence of a manual I guess I could use your help to get the answer to my questions.Thanks Again,
