Great work guys!! Good that u ditched the pervious theme engine. The new one is far better. Now u got to work on the lag which is there when we resize the notes.

slick, really cool app love this app, however thought you should kno that for some reason it doesn't like to do the automatic numbering/bullets feature when using swipe keyboard, yup still love this app though

Not sure I like the hover idea. The only thing I think would make it better is the ability to change the note color easier. Our at least a few words of the note beside the floating icon. Gets a little confusing if you run more than one note.

Better than perfect. I've been a fan of this app for a while, but the theme changer really pushed it over the top. Excellent work.
