Learn More About the Post-it® App and How it Works

  • A “Capture” is what we call the process of photographing multiple Post-it® Notes and then identifying each individual note so it can be recreated digitally.
  • A “Board” is the display area for captured Post-it® Notes. Multiple Captures can be included in the same Board. Additionally, the Post-it® Notes within a Board can individually be moved around, grouped and edited.
  • The Post-it® App works with all devices running iOS® 12 or above on iPhones and iPads, Android™ version 7 or above on Android™ devices and macOS 10.15 Catalina or above on Mac computers. It is optimized for iPhone® X and newer, as well as for iPad Pro®.
  • High contrast content captures best so we recommend using dark coloured markers or felt tipped pens when writing on Post-it® Notes. The lighting in the room as well as the contrast between Post-it® Notes and the background also matters. Always capture in well-lit environments. If you have a light background such as a whiteboard, notes with stronger colours work best. If you have a dark background, lighter coloured notes work better.

    The app also works great with Apple Pencil® and Samsung’s S Pen® for editing digital notes.
  • Currently the Post-it® App is optimized for square Post-it® Notes. If you use other shapes, the app may still capture them, but they will be displayed as a square. This may result in the content of that note looking squished. If you are interested in support for capturing non-square notes, please drop us a line at postitapp@3m.com (US, English only).
