Sticky: quickly add a handy sticky note to the Lock screen


Sticky is an upcoming jailbreak tweak that allows you to add a handy sticky note to the Lock screen. It’s a tweak that’s useful for quickly taking notes that you will need to reference at a later time.

One of the cool things about Sticky is that your notes stay visible on the Lock screen. This makes it so that when you wake your device from sleep, your note is waiting on you to remind you of any tasks.

We’ve taken Sticky for a spin on video. Have a look past the break for the full review.

Sticky may have a simple premise, but the preferences for the tweak are surprisingly deep. There are options to customize the color of notes, color of fonts, font size, and more.

There’s even alpha settings, and animation duration and hide settings. As if that wasn’t enough, Sticky features X and Y axis offsets for the sticky hide button that resides in the bottom left-hand corner of the Lock screen interface.

But regardless of all of the settings, Sticky’s main selling point is its simplicity. As of now, you can only create one single note at at time, and I look at that as a feature, not something to bemoan. The whole point of Sticky is to make it easy to quickly capture information with the minimum amount of friction. Sticky’s simplicity allows it to pull this off relatively well.

The main issue I have with this initial build of Sticky is that the keyboard, which is dismissible via a button in the upper left-hand corner of the sticky note, sometimes gets in the way. If you aren’t diligent in dismissing the keyboard properly, it can tend to get in the way when unlocking your device.

Other than that small gripe, I really like this tweak. Sticky will be available soon from William Vabrinskas on Cydia’s ModMyi default repo. Please share your thoughts about the tweak down below in the comments.
