When you need to remember something, how do you remind yourself? I used to put a note next to the coffee maker or the computer — something that I would see for sure every morning. Of course, seeing the reminder didn’t guarantee anything, since I can just as easily forget after seeing it. Smartphones have changed that, though. There are sticky note applications that keep your important reminders front and center every time you unlock your Android device. Most of these act as widgets, though, which take up room on your home screen. That’s usually worth the trade-off, but it can be done more efficiently. Today we’re looking at one such solution.
Via the xda blog we learn of an app called Sticky Notes Live Wallpaper. It immediately enters my good graces by doing exactly what the name implies. It’s a sticky note, but instead of taking space on your home screen as a widget, it becomes part of your live wallpaper. There are only two animated themes to choose from, unfortunately: the Android robot skating, and a luau girl in front of what appears to be a tropical beach. But with each of the wallpapers comes the ability to stick a series of notes on your home screen. You can put up to five notes there, though they’re all in one box (on separate lines). You might still prefer widgets — and if you do, ColorNote Notepad Notes is a well-regarded app — but if you’d rather stick the notes in your wallpaper, this app gives you an alternative. You can get Sticky Notes Live Wallpaper for free in the Market.
