I love Sticky Widgets. These are widgets you can place on your iOS | iPadOS 14 or later home screens that act as sticky notes. It was recently updated to version 3.0 with some great new features. Lists. In addition to classic free-form notes, you can also create lists. Each item can be toggled on and off (even from medium and large-sized widgets) and adding to your list is just as simple as you’ve come to expect from Sticky Widgets. Set note names. A major usability feature, you can now give your notes names and use them to tie notes to widgets (instead of relying on an auto-assigned ID number). Create notes directly from the note list. No need to do the widget-based note creation process of the past (though you absolutely still can). Read or set notes from Shortcuts. Update your notes directly from a Shortcut action, and read your notes programmatically as well. Undo/redo. Mistype something or accidentally delete some of your note? The new undo/redo buttons are here to help. Import/export. For those important notes, you can now export your whole note library for safe keeping, importing them back to Sticky Widgets at a later time. Improved syncing. The entire cloud backup and syncing layer has been rewritten. Substantial design and Ul improvements. The whole app has had a touchup, especially the note editor with an all-new edge-to-edge design.

The latest beta of iOS 15 is available now for both developers and the public. The team over at Geeky Gadgets have put the newest build through its paces on a number of devices, both new and older.

In the final speed test with the iPhone 11 the device running the iOS 14.7.1 softwarewas the first to boot up, there are no noticeable speed improvements in the apps.
