Sticky notes of different sizes and colors can be created by double-tapping on the whiteboard. They can also be moved and resized with a tap and drag of your finger. You're able to select and organize multiple sticky notes by first dragging your finger over them, and then using three-finger swipe gestures to choose a layout. The app also includes the ability to write on the whiteboard with different colored markers, undo and redo, a gallery view, and the ability to share your stickies as a PDF or text.

You’ve always been a sticky note fanatic. It’s infinitely flexible, so it can be used for a variety of applications.

You want to be able to write freely or doodle directly on the sticky notes themselves.
