What I Did not Like in this Sticky Notes App for Windows 8:
What really disappointed me while testing this Windows 8 note taking app was repinning feature. If you edit and update an existing note (that has already been pinned to start), you have to repin it to the start screen as it does not update the content of that pinned note. There is another thing that needs improvement. When you add a new sticky note, you don’t get any option to add a new line. Pressing the ‘Enter’ key simply saves the sticky note. Developers can make it more user-friendly by adding such features.
