    Have any of you guys who came over to the Evo from the Pre seen a notes app with a similar interface to the notepad on the Pre? I really liked the look and simplicity of it.

    What I do not wanna end up doing, though, is wasting an entire page with a buncha freefloating sticky note type things that I've seen on some people's screens. I want a sticky note type screen, but one that goes away when I close the app.

    I hope this makes sense.

    The closest I've come so far visually is "Melon" but the interface is horrible and there are some other pretty key problems.

    Also, please note that I am not looking for general recommendations for notes apps, so if you don't know exactly what I mean when I talk about the one on the Pre I'd prefer if you discussed it in another thread, thanks! :)

    There are a few threads on note type apps. I use ColorNote. It's not the same as the one on the Pre, but it does the job just as well.

    Thats just a widget, its not the real note app, nor do you have to add a widget to your screen. I just do as a reminder, at a glance

    ColorNote works just fine for me,
    its just not as pretty as palms notes

    To clarify, I do like the little post-it widgets, I just don't want them to be placed on one of the homepages. I'd like that to be the interface of the notes app itself.

    I really loved having what are essentially thumbnails of my notes. And, more important than the aesthetics, I really want the ability to rearrange them by simply dragging them around the application screen.

    Unless I'm missing something (and it is entirely possible that I am...), this functionality does not exist in ColorNote. When I tried it before it did not look anything like what I wanted, but I'll give it another shot based on the rec's here.

    EDIT: OK, after trying ColorNote again, and going a little deeper into the settings, I guess this is gonna be as close as it gets for now. Thanks for pointing me back in that direction.

    search for "google notes" and you'll find it.
