Never Use Post It Notes Again Thanks to Pinched Notes for Android
Note taking programs are widely available for Android, but this one that was made by XDA member dego1988 is certainly looking rather appealing. Pinched Notes is a Notes type of application that is really visually appealing. If you have Sense running in your Android device, you may find this app remarkably similar to the Notes Widget. However, as this does not require Sense to run, those who either don’t have it or don’t like it, can now enjoy something similar.
A couple of good features of this app is the lack of ads, as well as the fact that you can send your notifications off to another location via e-mail or via Bluetooth if you are close by to someone who you cannot speak to (for instance, a meeting).

Instead, Glimpse Notifications will do it for you when a notification comes in. That doesn't mean...
