Simple Paper - App Spotlight

Looking for a simple, note taking/reminder app for your Windows Phone? Simple Paper is a post-it style app that is capable of synchronizing your notes with SimpleNote. The application user interface is simple and straight forward. Tap the "+" sign to create a note and when done, a colorful post-it will appear on the main page of the app.

Synchronization with SimpleNote gives you the ability to create and view your notes from the PC or have someone else send your a note. For example if your out and about, your wife needs to send you an emergency grocery list, problem solved. Need to jot down product information while your shopping to review later, problem solved.

The only thing that Simple Paper is lacking is a live tile that highlights any reminders or notes you've created. Regardless, if you like multi-colored post-it notes, Simple Paper might be worth a gander. There is a free, ad-supported version of Simple Paper that you can find here (opens in new tab) (opens Zune) at the Marketplace. Not a fan of ads? An ad-free version will run you $1.99 and you can find that copy here (opens in new tab) at the Marketplace.

  • How do I get a piece of paper with a sticky stripe to appear on my phone? Post-it is a specific product and a registered trademark.
  • This would be awesome if you could create a live tile for a specific note. (I'm looking at you, mango!)
  • Not as colorful, but you can do that with Notepad Plus, as it supports Push. Sync any note with your Live Tile.
  • hrm... not quite seeing the real benefit over the free, built-in, OneNote...
