Sticky notes are not a productivity tool. When you see them stacked up on a monitor, it’s discouraging. But on a smartphone screen? They can be a simple reminder. Paste your quick thoughts somewhere conspicuous with ColorNote — right under your Twitter client link, perhaps? — and you’ll hopefully remember that a first draft is due, to email that person with a question, or whatever else you need to get your words done.
