Major Microsoft Sticky Notes 3.0 update now available for Skip Ahead Insiders

After a steady stream of teasers, Microsoft is unleashing Sticky Notes version 3.0 on Skipe Ahead Insiders. In a post to its Insider blog, Microsoft says that Skip Ahead Insiders can now receive the updated app, complete with plenty of new features to check out.

Here's the official look at all of what's new:

  • Sync (& backup) your notes across your Windows devices.
  • If you have a lot of notes, your desktop can get a bit crowded! We are introducing a new home for all your notes. You can choose which notes to stick to your desktop or tuck them away and find them again easily with search.
  • Before all the beautiful sunshine arrived, we channeled our dark energy into a dark themed note: Charcoal Note.
  • Crossing tasks off feel better than deleting them! Now you can style your note with the new formatting bar.
  • You may notice that Sticky Notes is performing a lot faster – that is completely on purpose.
  • We've applied so much polish that the app is starting to look like a shiny pony!
    • Drastic improvements on being more inclusive:
    • Using assistive technologies and Narrator.
    • Keyboard navigation.
    • Using mouse, touch, and pen.
    • High Contrast.

Sticky Notes 3.0

Overall, this is a pretty major update for an app that often flies under the radar. If you were lucky enough to make it in the limited group of Skip Ahead Insiders when it was last opened up for submission, you should be able to grab the 3.0 update via the Microsoft Store now.
