Notable New Apps: ‘Post-it PopNotes’ and ‘SB Nation’

by Marianne Schultz

Yesterday day was a crazy day on the internets following the news of the resignation of Steve Jobs from Apple but as I’m sure you’ve guessed, Apple and the App Store keep on ticking despite his departure from the company’s CEO position. New apps and updates continue to flood the App Store and a few caught our eye today.

You know those yellow sticky notes that are a staple in every office environment? Well, you can now use them on your iPhone or iPad with the free, official Post-It PopNotes app from 3M Company. PopNotes lets you create and place notes virtually at any location using your device’s GPS capabilities and an in-app map, as well as share them with friends and make them visible to anyone browsing notes around them with the app.

Notes can have audible reminders triggered at the date and time you specify. You can also set notes to generate a reminder for you when you get close to their designated location, providing a bit of an unexpected twist on the digital note concept compared to other notes apps I’ve seen.

If your a sports fan, you’ll want to check out the new SB Nation app that debuted in the App Store yesterday. SB Nation aggregates sports news from the company’s more than 300 sports blogs and includes the ability to let you select the teams and sports you’re most interested in to customize your news feed.

SB Nation has been around since 2003 and its blogs have millions of readers around the world. If you also follow tech news, you may have heard that SB Nation also owns The Verge, a new tech news and review site set to debut this fall and helmed by former Engadget Editor Joshua Topolsky.

    An official Post-It notes app is a good idea, and the idea of location based reminders is great, until … you discover that location based reminders can only be set in the US! What?! Pointless restriction. Deleted from my device immediately.

    Great Man..!! Apple Rocks…despite being going through the difficult phase of Jobs resignation, Apple launched its apps which are very much useful for people at work and sports lover. I use stick notes to note down and remember my tasks and stick them to my system but now i think Pop-Notes app have reduced my effort. And as for SB Nation-Sports News i am not fond of sports but i am sure this app will capture the market soon.
