I created this application out of my need as I used S Memo for taking notes, meeting minutes and using the widgets as the sticky notes. I found memo to be the closest one but widgets was broken and I decided to create a new application based on SPen SDK 2.1

Features of GNote
1. Multiple widgets which remains even after reboot. Widgets are updated as soon as the corresponding note is edited.
2. Multiple pages with easy navigation
3. Update existing widgets note
4. Simple toolbar which can be hidden.
5. Notes Gallery for managing notes. (image of the first page of the note is shown in notes gallery)
6. Notes Gallery - Multiple notes can be deleted.
7. Images from gallery and camera can be added to the note.
8. Settings - option to disable back key
9. Settings - option to disable finger touch.
10.It remembers last used pen and eraser settings and uses the same when the app is launched next time.
11. Very smooth and does not lag.
12. Clicking on the title bar of widget opens a new note
13. Clicking on the body of the widget opens the note corresponding to the widget.

Compatible with ICS and JB.

Like the app, very useful! It would be nice if we could change the background color of the widget and maybe try to steamline the widget title bar, it takes up space. All in all really like it and see a lot of potential!!

Thank you!
Marty

Customization and Background colors will come later as I need to tackle some of the basic stuffs like image and text. All suggestions than can improve user experience are welcome and are potential candidates for future releases.

Nope.
Be aware that someone can do it before you and "steal" your app by this way.
There were some cases like that in the past.

Anyway, subscribing to the thread :good:

I would have paid $25 but Indian users cannot sell paid apps currently on market and there is no way for me to regain those $25. Do you know any other alternate site where I can upload my application.

If i'm not totally wrong, you can upload your app to the Play Store, but you can't sell it. It has to be free. Or if you want to sell apps on the Play Store, you'll have to find a person (that you trust 110%) who can sell your app(s) on your behalf.

I searched a lot but the only answer I get is pay $25 and upload free or paid apps. Since, this application is free, its best for me to host it on XDA.

WOW!

really great application especially the lag-less writing with the pen. very impressive! even on the note cm10 preview

thanks very much :)

I think this should be part of CM 10 for note when it's ready. not of the ugly play store :)

the delete with finger idea is not that good I think - cause when I write I tend to touch the screen with my Palm rest accidently...

what i would like to See is an Option to disable the touchscreen and/or the back touch-Button --- so that just the pen is working

thanks again

So this app doesn't have palm rejection?
What is the pros/cons when comparing it to Papyrus?

Currently the app is targeted for ICS/JB specifically cyanogen mod. In the next release i will make it compatible with GB.

    I would like to inform you that due to lot of changes in my life (country, job, etc) I am not finding sufficient time to work on this application and the updates to it may no longer happen in the near future.

    I would like to thank you all for appreciating the work done by me.

    Still there are lot of features that I have planned to implement but was busy for past month as I was moving to another country. In a week or two I will again start the development of this app.
