*** Product Description ***
Color Note notepad features two basic note taking formats, a lined-paper styled text option and a traditional checklist option. Add as many as you want to your master list, which appears on the app's home screen each time the program opens. This list may be viewed in traditional ascending order, in a grid format, or by the color of the note.

- Taking a Note -
Serving as a simple word processing program, the text option allows for as many characters as you're willing to type with your device's virtual or physical keyboard. Once saved, you can edit, share, set a reminder, check off or delete the note through your device's menu button. When checking off a text note, the app places a slash through the list's title, a mark that shows on the main menu.

- Making a To-Do List -
In the checklist mode, you can add as many items as you'd like and move their order around with the up and down buttons activated in the edit mode. After the list is finished and saved, you may check, and uncheck, each line on your list (from grocery store items to household chores) with a quick tap that generates a line slash. If all items have been checked, the list's title is slashed as well.

When you're finished using the notepad, an automatic save command preserves your individual note before returning you to Color Note's homescreen.
