About this app

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.

* FAQ *
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

Q: I forgot my master password. How can I change it?
A: Menu → Settings → Master Password → Menu Button → Clear Password. You will lose your current locked notes when you clear the password!

Q: How can I create todo list note?
A: New - Select checklist note - Put items - Save. Tap an item to strikethrough.

I have been using this app for years now, and it really is a good solution for note taking, sorting your ideas, journals, whatever you like to write into categories etc. The app has improved a lot over the years and I hope it continues to do so 🙏 Just an update... Now for some reason when I'm using the app, whenever it syncs while I'm writing something I lose about half of what I was writing if I don't save the not often. It's happened enough I had to mention

Intuitively user-friendly without superfluous steps to accomplish basic task. Like putting pen to paper, it's a time-saver for its ease of use. I might suggest, however: 1. relocation of the "X" button in edit mode to prevent accidental deletions; and, 2. a "select all" function for the primary menu list to make transferring data between devices less tedious. But overall, I really appreciate its simplicity!

Simple perfection. No fuss, I've never had an issue with this app. Not once and it saves automatically if you close it or swipe it away. Such a great feature. My hubby uses it, I've got my children using it and I tell anyone I think needs an app like this that it's my go to! Great for brain trauma memory or communication issues. Great for covid or other medical brain fog issues. Thank you!!!! I really can't thank you enough for this app. Have had it for many years. Ty, Ty, Ty 💞💞💞
