This is a fantastic re-imagining of text/note apps. I've trialled it and its staying. Fills the niche I need for notes on the fly between apps and sharing/transferring. There are "Post-it" and "Copy Bubble" apps; but this is the one I'm sticking with. Try it, you won't be disappointed

I work on hovernote (sometimes) in my spare time. Development is typically slow.
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.
