Post-it App for Android - Turn Physical Stickies Into Digital Ones

For many years Post-it has offered a free iPhone and iPad app that you can use to turn a collection of physical sticky notes into digital ones. This morning I discovered that Post-it now offers an Android version of the same app. Both versions of the Post-it app let you snap a picture of a collection of sticky notes that you want to digitize. After snapping the picture you'll be able to sort and group the digitized version of your sticky notes. You can export your digitized stickies and groups of stickies as PDF, PowerPoint, and Excel files. Watch the video below to see how the Post-it app works.


On a related note, Amazon currently offers a 10% discount on Post-it notes and other 3M products on this page when you use the discount code 10OFFCOLLEGE.

Applications for Education
As I've written before, this app is good for digitizing the output of a brainstorming session that started with physical notes. You could have students carry-out brainstorming sessions with physical notes then go around the room with one iPad or Android tablet to create a digital record of those notes. Then project the app through an LCD projector or interactive whiteboard to show students all of the notes and talk about which notes should be sorted into various categorized boards in the app.
