This article is a retake on a cloud based sticky notes application, called Linoit, that I absolutely fell in love with. Since my last posting on Linoit back in early 2011, Linoit has developed into a very popular app to the point that it is also now available as an app for the iPhone, iPad and Android platforms. As a matter of fact I use it on my Toshiba Thrive tablet and absolutely love it. This allows me to sync my notes across all of my devices.
Years ago when I first experienced electronic sticky notes, I thought WOW… No more paper notes hanging around my computer monitor. Most electronic sticky note programs require a software installation to work; until now! As a result of cloud computing, a web-based virtual sticky notes program, called Linoit, was born. After setting up an account (for FREE) with Linoit, you can access your sticky notes anywhere there is internet service. Linoitworks directly from your web browser within a moveable “canvas” (where you can use your own background image), which is like a user specific bulletin board-like area. With Linoit you can even share sticky notes (and photos) with others.
There are so many features and options with this program that I encourage to visit the website [ HERE ] ; HOWEVER, there is one feature with Linoit that I think is really cool. Once you sign up for your account, get the “linoit anywhere” bookmarklet. Click on the “lino anywhere” bookmarklet anywhere, anytime, from any website and if you are signed into your Linoit account, your sticky notes will magically appear (overlay with transparent background) on the the page you are visiting. I can’t say I have seen anything like this with any other cloud computing service. Also, if you use Google Chrome, you can install Linoit as a Chrome app[ HERE ].
If you would like to experience Linoit to see what it is like, you can visit Linoit’s public sticky notes “HOW TO” board [ HERE ].
