Post-it releases Android app to scan and organize sticky notes, only five years after iOS

Today Post-it is revealing something you might have already assumed it had: an Android app. The new Post-it app will allow you to digitally import content written on real-world Post-its, supplement them with more created on-device, organize them into groups, and share them with others in multiple formats. None of this is really new since the company's iOS app has been around for half a decade, but now the more populated platform has reached Post-it parity.

The latest app to receive dark mode is Google Keep, and we've got some screenshots courtesy of tipster Kreeper.

Both note and list support is rolling out to Assistant (on phones and Google Homes) now, but you can't pick a third-party app to manage them just yet. So if you're itching for the Google Keep integration, you may need to be a bit more patient.

Google has been rolling out updates to its flagship app at a record pace, with significant updates landing only a few days apart.
