Material Notes: Colorful Notes App For Android

Material design language for the user interface for Android debuted way back in 2014 on Android 5.0 lollipop. However, the same design language is being used to date on Android 8.0 oreo, albeit a bit more refined to keep it relatively fresh and modern. Material design is based on paper and ink. Designer Matias Duarte detailed that “Unlike real paper, our digital material can expand and reform intelligently. Material has physical surfaces and edges. Seams and shadows provide meaning about what you can touch”. Speaking of Material Design, let me come to the main topic of this article. Today, I would like to take a look at an called Material Notes: Colorful Notes. This app is pretty much the same as any other note-taking app, but with a more colorful, vivid, and vibrant approach to notes in terms of its look and feel. Hence, inspired by the Android Material design language. Moreover, the app also provides you with the ability to lock every single note you have jotted or taken down with a 4 digit PIN.
