Welcome to Sticky Widgets, the absolute easiest way to put a sticky note on your home screen and edit it quickly. Add as many Sticky Widgets as you'd like, in all three widget sizes. It's simple!

1. Add a Sticky Widget to your home screen
2. Tap on the widget to edit it
3. That's about it!

But that's not all. Once you have a widget in place, you can customize it: change color, background, font, alignment, size, even rotation! And your widgets now sync to your iCloud account, meaning you can put a note on multiple devices logged into the same Apple ID and they'll stay in sync.

What’s New

Version 3.2.1

This update includes substantial reliability and performance improvements for Lock Screen widgets.

Select any of your notes and tap the … button to set it to any of three Lock Screen widget slots. When customizing your Lock Screen, choose one of your Sticky Widgets widgets and put it on your screen to have your note always visible!

This app takes great advantage of iOS 14's widgets and nails the functionality of putting reminders or short lists directly on your Home Screen. I've been using it alongside my more full featured todo app (which can easily get cluttered) to simply ID the top 3-5 things to do in a given day, and then they are in front of me every time I glance at my phone. Love it!!

I did have one glitch with the 2.0 update and, after playing with it, realized that it seems to be due to the new iCloud sync feature. Since my iCloud is full (I don't pay for it, so that's a near permenant reality), it wasn't actually saving any of my changes (I only use it on my phone at this point). I fixed it by going into the iCloud settings and turning off the slider for iCloud access for the app. Now everything's back to bring groovy. 😎

Thanks for the hard work on this app!

Good app. Update problems

I like the app. Very simple and useful. However, the update erased my note, and I see no way to change fonts, alignment, etc, including the premium features I purchased. Settings for the app have almost nothing. I am running iOS 14.0.1 on a 11 Pro Max. I’m still rating it 5-stars, because I expect the problem to be solved. One possible clue, something seems to flash before the keyboard appears, but then is hidden by the keyboard, which I see no way to lower. Could that be where the settings are supposed to be.

Update: I tried this on my iPad and saw a note to long-press the note to access settings. This works, so the lost note is the only casualty; fortunately I only had one, but I’d be pretty annoyed if I had a bunch.

Good concept. Needs work.

On my iPhone, the font can now be smaller when inputting it, but on the note it’s so big that it wraps a single word. I wrote Respond and half the word is on the next line. Seems scaling should be turned on.
Also I did try adding several widgets to have several notes. They all had the same single note on it and when I changed one, they all changed.
The restore feature does nothing.
The first widget let me select one of three colors. Adding another widget and that was taken away and only yellow remained.
This is a good try but not yet ready to work.
-edit as developer responded
Starting to see some progress here but still lacks some basic things.
The developer sounds a lot like an engineer, needs to work a bit more UX. Sure stickies should be numbered but with no list to select the numbers, and no labels for the numbers all you have is a guess unless you are one of those people that remembers a random number and your note.
Basically, the concept needs to be reworked as a note platform first, with a sticky note option. Simple delete a note swipe. Select which note will be on the widget from the main app with a simple select or check box. Speaking of check boxes, you should be able to prioritize and dismiss a sticky note so it can be used like a to do list. Add alarm functionality and you have a basic app!

Hi there, thanks for the review A few things:
- Version 1.3 fixes the issue where single words would wrap. I also added a manual text size settings for even more control over the sizing in that version.
- There's a system bug that will occasionally report multiple widgets back as one. If you change one widget's Note ID, it'll appear unique and let you have multiple different notes.
- "Restore" is to restore a previously purchased upgrade. A future build will have a better label on it.
