TL;DR: Stay organized with a lifetime subscription to Sticky Notes for $49.99, a 95% savings as of Sept. 17.
If you want a super streamlined way to jot down notes without opening an entire Google Doc, consider a web extension called Sticky Notes.
Sticky Notes, which works on both Chrome and Microsoft Edge, helps you save important links, record quick ideas in a flash, and plan your to-do list easily.
The extension installs a button next to your URL bar, which you can click to bring up a note. Inside, you’ll be able to type in italics, bold, and underline, as well as in bulleted and numbered lists. You’ll also have lots of fonts and preset animated themes to play around with.
Need to share your notes with others, or just access them on multiple devices? Export them to text files from within the app, or open up the original note on any device by logging into the Sticky Notes website.
Here’s a quick demo:
In the nine years the extension has existed, it’s earned 4.7 out of 5 stars on the Chrome Web Store. As of September 17, you can get a lifetime Sticky Notes subscription for just $49.99 — a significant discount from the usual price tag.
