With the increasing power available in modern smartphones, we have started to see manufacturers provide the ability to have multiple “windows” open at once on their devices, emulating the desktop environment. This can be useful for people who do not necessarily want to back out of one application to access another. One area where this can lead to some real benefits for the user is when a quick note needs to be jotted down. Owner’s of smartphones running older versions of Android can join in on the fun now thanks to XDA Developer forum member Mohammad_Adib who create the Floating Stickies note-taking app.
The Floating Stickies app gives the user the ability to open a floating window where they can type up a quick note. The note will stay on the screen, floating above whatever else may be open, unless “minimized” to the left hand edge of the screen. The fun does not stop at one floating sticky note though – multiple windows with different colors can be opened at the same time. Text in one note can be copied and pasted into another note. The only downside I see to the app is that it does not save the content of the notes once the app is shut down, but if one uses it like a sticky note to keep the info at hand just long enough to be useful, then tossed, the app should work great.
If you want to check out Floating Stickies in action, view the video below or hit the Google Play download links to install it on your Android device. You don’t have much to lose as the app is free.
