I’m working on a few new features – not the least of which is, at long last, cloud support! More on that after the jump. I’ve also got context menu support working, although it’s pretty basic at this point.
It may be a little while before I push out the next point version of Sticky Notes, because I want to get saving to the cloud working in the next release. I don’t really care for the term “saving to the cloud,” partially because it’s so vague. One of my pet peeves about so many note apps – and this is true of several others on the Chrome Store – is that they require you to create an account with them. I don’t want to create another account! Just one more place for me to have to remember my password.
My approach is, I think, much easier for you, the user. You’re not technically a customer, because Sticky Notes is free. But I still want to make it simple, if for no other reason than because I use it too. And I think you should be able to log in using your Google account. After all, you’re already using Chrome. You can’t install any apps from the Chrome Store without a Google account, so why not use something that’s already there, instead of making you register again?
Another thing I’ve been working on is context menu support. You can see from these screenshots that you can select some text, right-click, and add them automatically to a new note. You can right-click on any page and add that page’s address to a new note; you can also right-click any link and add it to a new note, as well.
The “selected text to new note” is basically working – as of right now, it doesn’t grab all the formatting, just the text and line breaks. I hope to fix that soon.
