Do you still recall the days when we added sticky notes to the desktop on our Windows PC? Well, that era can now be revisited as it is currently possible to add sticky notes to your iPhone home screen via Sticky Widgets. What are Sticky Widgets you may ask? We’ll break it down.
Sticky Widgets are very useful when you need to quickly jot something down and ensure it can be accessed seamlessly in the future. Luckily for us, some of the same functionality can now be brought to our iPhone home screen because of widgets that were first launched in iOS 14.
The Sticky Widgets application gives you something close to the real-life sticky notes experience. As soon as you add a widget in whatever size, users can click on it to edit the text. The application is also home to the marquee yellow and pink backgrounds and the felt tip marker font. See How Do I Add Sticky Notes To My iPhone Home Screen?
