Post-it notes get fresh life with digital app
SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - Post-it notes, those sticky papers used by pen-and-ink people for reminders and bookmarks, are getting new life for the digital world.
The maker of Post-it, 3M Corp, and the software firm Evernote announced plans on Thursday for a partnership "to give new digital life to Post-it products using Evernote's technology", a joint statement said.
As of Thursday, the Evernote app for Apple devices can be used to "instantly transform any Post-it note into a digital memory that can be saved, shared and viewed anywhere", the companies said.
This will allow people "to take their notes with them wherever they go and provide a seamless bridge between the analog and digital world".
