Note Taking and Sticky Notes Apps for Chrome
By on December 8th, 2010

Since the was launched, I have been playing around with quite a few and am already loving the experience with it. Many Chrome Apps are not shortcuts and work inside the browser itself. In the next few days I will be posting about several new and interesting Apps you can start using including one for and Distraction Free Writing.

Today, I will talk a few apps for Note-taking and creating sticky notes (checkout 11 Sticky notes software for your desktop). First off, you might spend a lot of time on the browser, researching content or discovering new content on an everyday basis. Having a handy notepad to take notes is definitely one of the most important things for researching and taking notes which you can refer back to later .

The Quick Note app for Chrome is a simple and easy to use Note-Taking app for Chrome which you will definitely come to love. It has simplicity written all over it but it really good. The app allows you to create multiple notes and search within notes. You can also easily copy and paste images into your notes which makes it pretty powerful.

Quick Note also allows you to create a new note while browsing a website through the context menu, you can then toggle the note and continue reading the content while you continue with your work. Whenever you want to add some more notes, just click on the note in the right hand side again.

All of the notes are saved locally, so you will have access to them even if you close the application. Overall, if you are looking to take notes in Chrome, the Quick Note is the app I recommend. Download Quick Note app for Chrome.

Sticky Notes for Chrome

My second favorite app is the Stickies app for Chrome which allows you to create Sticky notes and stack them up in the browser. You can create as many sticky notes as you want and also recycle them after you are done with.

Creating Sticky notes is pretty easy too, just double click anywhere on the Stickies window and your sticky note is ready to be used. Once you are done with the Sticky note, just drag it to the recycle bin to get rid of it. However, disposed sticky notes can no longer be recovered. Download Stickies app for Chrome.

Did you find any other app that does the same job? Do let me know through your comments.

    Hi Keith,

    Thanks for a great summary of Diigo’s Quick Note Chrome app. Really appreciate it.

    You probably have noticed: Diigo also releases another Chrome app: “Read Later Fast”, which allows you to save webpages to read later, whether online or offline, and fast!

    Read Later Fast is an innovative app that addresses the following pains and needs:
    * Have too many tabs open?
    * Do not want to clutter your bookmark folders with temporary links?
    * Want to be able to read offline or make sure you have an archived version?
    * Want to read webpages fast, like a slideshow, and as clean-text?

    While both apps are in early beta version, they have been well received in the Chrome Web Store and garnering very high user ratings Our team will be improving them at a fast pace over the coming days. Currently, both apps save things locally. We will soon sync them with Diigo and other online services, making them the best single-function client-side apps.

    While both apps are in early beta version, they both fully leverage what Chrome 8 offers, such as HTML5 and local storage, and have been well received in the Chrome Web Store and garnering very high user ratings. Our team will be improving them at a fast pace over the coming days. Currently, both apps save things locally. We will soon sync them with Diigo and other online services, making them the best single-function client-side apps.

    Lastly, as you may know, on top of these 2 new apps, there are several other Chrome extensions by Diigo, “Awesome Screenshot” and “Diigo Bookmark, Archive, Highlight & Sticky-Note” are among the highest rated Chrome extensions, as users rave about how useful they are. We’d also love to invite you to check them out. Thanks so much for your time in advance! Talk soon.

    I found Auto Notes for Chrome really interesting for capturing notes: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/jmbohdjfjkakoohodeadhbmikieolpkb
