Microsoft reportedly working to bring Sticky Notes to mobile devices

Microsoft is currently cooking up a pretty hefty update to Sticky Notes for Windows 10, but you may soon be able to join in on mobile as well. Thurrott.com reports that Microsoft is working on potentially launching a dedicated Sticky Notes app for Android and iOS "sometime this year."

The additional apps would let you easily sync your notes from your Windows PC to your Android or iPhone. This would arguably make a little talked about app much more useful, allowing you to keep up with your notes on the go. Further, it meshes with Microsoft's continued push to expand its services across all platforms with the cloud acting as a go-between.

There's no exact timeline on when Sticky Notes may make its way to mobile, if at all (these things can always be canceled, after all). However, it would make sense for Microsoft to make a major push around the same time Sticky Notes version 3.0 arrives for Windows 10. Along with a dark mode for notes, the update has already been confirmed to be bringing a new formatting bar and several accessibility features.

For now, you can go ahead and give the current version a Sticky Notes a shot by grabbing the app for Windows 10 from the Microsoft Store.

  • Microsoft always trying things to see what sticks. ;-)
  • s(ticks).
  • Pretty pointless on a phone, one note on the screen will cover 50% of it
  • I don't think that's how you'd use it. You'd simply open up the app to review notes you made on another device.
  • Can you even sync notes between computers? Might be part of the new update I guess.
  • Helpful IF notes can be synced to OneNote and tasks synced to MS To-do or Cortana.
  • Agree. Sticky notes, just like their namesake, are often volatile. Sometimes they go in the 'trash', sometimes I want to transfer the information to some more appropriate permanent storage. That should be simplified. Sticky notes, like their namesake, can't be easily sorted, filtered, searched, and they can quickly take over your screen. Managing them by moving the contents is really needed.
  • Yes that'd be great
  • No sticky notes for w10m? Damn it
  • 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂
  • Need it. Hope they sync. Hope I can sign with any account.
  • Isn't this what wunderlist, OneNote MS Todo etc already does?
