After a month of testing from Insiders of the Windows 10 Fast Ring, Sticky Notes 3.7 is officially rolling out to all users running the Windows 10 April 2018 update or newer.
Perhaps the most significant feature that comes to version 3.7 is Ink Analysis—a feature that allows the software to recognize text within handwritten notes. The feature was previously unavailable due to unforeseen bugs, however now that the issues have been sorted, it's once again available for to users to try. Insights has also received fixes and other improvements, including remembering insights across sessions and while offline.

In addition to the feature enhancements just listed, the app also includes aesthetic improvements as well. In dark mode, highlighted text now matches the color assigned to the note, as opposed to the user’s chosen Windows color.
If you’re not yet familiar with Sticky Notes, it’s free on the Microsoft Store for Windows 10. In addition to support for Microsoft’s desktop operating system, the app is available on the web as well as on on Android and iOS via the OneNote app.
