PrittyNote is a web application that makes sticky notes or images. According to the developer, PrittyNotes are sticky notes that you’ve written a joke, advice, quote, lovely message, or anything and left it somewhere for friend, relative, family or just anybody. You design them online and download them to your PC.
TechMoran met with Mutai and this is what he told us.
How do you make money out of this?
We offer a FREE and PRO version of the tool in which anyone can use. The FREE version a.k.a “Try Out” is actually the full (PRO) version of the application/tool, only that it has a limit of how many “prittynotes” one can make. The limit is 150 “prittynotes”, after that you will be unable to use the application/tool since it will always prompt you to buy the PRO version to continue your creativity.
The PRO version is a one year subscription pay off, where you can make unlimited number of “prittynotes” within that subscription as a PRO user/member. The PRO version is $ 2.99 in cost.
Can I print the PrittyNotes?
It is an image, so yes you can. You have all the rights of the image once created.
When did you develop PrittyNote?
1st April, 2013.
What inspired you to launch the service?
The rise of social networks has brought a lot of ideas with it, one of these ideas is which PrittyNote has been built upon. You see the likes of such caption images everyday you use any social network, some jokes, sarcasm, love messages, quotes, advices, opinions and so forth. These images are not exactly similar to the ones PrittyNote makes though, since with PrittyNote we’ve worked on making them presentable and much more better, or you could say cooler.
These kinds of images are made with tools/software such as Paint, Photoshop and Glimpse (Ubuntu) to mention a few. These tools need a little skill building and have learning curves, there is the need of such like images but the downside is it’s a lazy world out there and people are very unwilling to learn new stuff especially not being part of their expertise. Time too is a factor. Photoshop, being the best tool/software, is sold at a very high price, and buying it to make such images ends up being a ridiculous move by anybody (our opinion though).
To spare you the efforts and time needed to acquire such skills to make such like images and also make social networking an even more fun experience the idea of PrittyNote was born with the help of HTML 5 which presented itself at the right time. So let’s say you already know what to write and image to use for your “prittynote”, for a skilled graphic designer it would take 5 minutes, an average user of Photoshop it would take 10 minutes, for a beginner it would take 30 minutes approximately or more to make a similar image. With PrittyNote, stripping off the need of any skills, it would take less than a minute (wow factor).
What technology is your system build on? HTML 5 Canvas to be specific
There are so many online note firms globally, how different are you?
You’ll have to test the tool/application out to really feel the difference. All we can say we have made everything easy, simple, tried to strip off the need of any skills, and added a few features that none of the other note making firms offer, these are image as background capability, be able to emphasize specific words by changing their colors easily, and the integration of twitter social network which we perceived as the mother of all amazing textual content.
What do I benefit as a user?
There is this famous quote an Image is worth more than a thousand words .We enable you to connect with people around you for once in a different and powerful way, since images are always a powerful way to express oneself.
What are your future plans?
As of now, we have the vision of prittynote being more than a tool/utility/application in the future. We would one day love to be a social network on our own.
