Review by Jazz4Me

Best sticky notes app I’ve used - I’ve tried a bunch - almost every one - of the sticky notes-like apps in the App Store. I settled on Scrappy Notes for a number of reasons, primarly because it had a lot of features I couldn’t find elsewhere. The most important feature from my standpoint is the support for tagging notes. I use Scrappy Notes as a to-do manager, and having tags makes it significantly better for that purpose. Having all of the notes Spotlight searchable, as well as being able to add notifications to important items makes Scrappy Notes a complete Kanban-like organizational tool. Nothing I’ve used comes close. A word about Scrappy Notes support: never, and I mean NEVER, have I had such quick response from a developer! I found an obscure bug in the tags function and the developer fixed it the next day (it took the App store a couple of days after that to get it posted, but the bug was found and patched almost immediately.) That alone is reason enough to buy Scrappy Notes over the “abandonware” that litters the App Store!
