★★★ Suggestions, Bug Reports, etc? ★★★
Honestly, development is glacially slow. I don't have anywhere near as much time as I used to to work on hovernote.
Also I am aware that some of the settings do not persist across app restarts and will fix that at some point.
The app is now free due to the new requirement for me to have my physical address on the app store page if I want to continue selling it.

5 stars had this for a while now. Very stable and useful. Can copy without leaving source, set to transparent to be able to see background without much obstruction.

Top class app Similar to sticky notes on windows but with the ability to share, even works with tablet talk. This is a superb app, wish I'd found it before it became free so could have shown some support for the developer. 5*+ and many, many thanks.

GREAT App! I needed to be able to take notes while having the reference material available on the screen - this app allows me to do that! I would recommend that it allow a user to create their own 'home' directory, and maybe add some different color schemes (personal preference). Thank you for this excellent tool!
