Notice to iPhone/iPad app users

We found a problem in our iPhone/iPad app version 1.3.0 and earlier that a part of text will be truncated when you create or edit a sticky from iPhone/iPad app. In particular, when your text contains “&” in it, text following it will be truncated.

The new version that fixes this problem is already available on the App Store. Please update your App to this version or later.

We’ve submitted a new version to the App Store, but it may take a week or few to pass Apple’s review before the new version is available.

Please do not edit a sticky containing “&” until the new version is available.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

[Edit on Apr 3 2012]
We found that the problem is caused not only by a formatted link but also any URL links containing “&”.

[Edit on Apr 3 2012]
We’ve submitted a new version to the App Store and are waiting for review.

[Edit on Apr 3 2012]
Updated information that all “&”s can cause the problem.

[Edit on Apr 10 2012]
New version 1.3.1 that fixes the problem is now available.

Tilt stickies and make your canvas attractive!

We’re excited to announce that now you can tilt stickies on your canvas!

When you hover your mouse cursor at the top right corner of a sticky, you’ll find a rotation mark appears. Drag it to tilt the sticky. Note that the pin has moved to the top middle area of a sticky.

With iPhone/iPad app, you can tilt a sticky by long-pressing the sticky follwed by the two-finger rotating gesture.


In addition, we added a lot of icons based on your ideas! Please take a look at them, and you’ll find your favorites.

Further more, you can now insert a link into a sticky. It means, you can make any text into a link as well as just writing a URL.

You need to write a link in Markdown style. For instance, if you want to make a text “lino” a link to http://linoit.com/, write

[lino](http://linoit.com/)

Take advantage of these features to create your canvas. Enjoy!
