BugMe! is an app that has been around for quite a long time. I remember it being around when I bought my first Handspring some ten years ago now. Their biggest claim to fame is being the first mobile sticky note app and while the app is simple, it does it’s job quite well. As a person who tries to organize their life from sticky notes on the computer screen, a mobile version always comes in handy.
When you run the first app you are confronted by a simple rendition of a cork board. A ‘plus’ key up in the corner is large, easy to find, and just begs for you to add notes to the board.
Adding notes is a simple affair. A press of the ‘plus’ button brings up a single sticky note. The default entry mode is drawing and so, with a couple of quick swipes of the fingers you can jot down whatever it is on your mind. A small shelf beneath the sticky note enables you to change entry modes, paper color, share the note and add alarms.
If you are the forgetful type (and if you’re using this app, it is kind of a given), the customizeability of the app is great. It allows you to make a remainder as simple or annoying as you need in order to make sure that you get it done.
Of course, a sticky note app would not be complete with out a home screen widget and BugMe! is no exception. There is only one widget and it comes in at a large 3 x 2. It is fairly basic as it only shows one sticky note at a time but it does have buttons to open the app and to create a new sticky note.
While the app is fairly simple it takes its one job and does it very well. The only real complaint that I have about the app is that I wish their were larger widget sizes that allowed you to be able to view multiple notes at one time.
A killer feature to add would be a desktop companion app that would allow you to sync the sticky notes on your phone with the ones on your desktop screen.
While there are many sticky note apps available for Android that are free, for 99 cents you can have one of the best.
