SAN FRANCISCO - Post-it notes, those sticky papers used by pen-and-ink people for reminders and bookmarks, are getting a new lease of life by going digital.
The 3M Company, the maker of Post-it, and software firm Evernote have announced plans for a partnership "to give new digital life to Post-it products using Evernote's technology", a joint statement said.
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 analogue and digital world".
With the app, Post-it notes can be organised by colour, have a reminder added or a due date assigned.
