Reviews From google play store

Only installed and bought pro version recently, but for now it suits my needs. Only complain i got, is what was writen by reviewers before - missing expandable/collapsible notifications. Currently the notifications takes way too much space of notification area Question for developer: Is there any plan to add it in near future?

This app is what I was looking for to use with my Gear S3 smartwatch, but there's one little feature that it's "missing" (not really, but it would be nice to have). The thing is that Gear S3 won't show any "persistent" notifications, so I'm stuck with just regular ones, and I dismiss all notifications very often, and that includes ones created by this app. I wonder if it's possible to make an option to make "persistent non-persistent" notifications that will recreate themselves when dismissed, unless you "disable" it in the app. Otherwise, it's a very nice app, thank you.

Horrible UX with intrusive ads, lack of autosave, and puzzling navigation.

Love this app. so ready to make notes and lists that stay on your desktop!!! It's the greatest !!

Very helpful and useful. Clean interface and helpful tools woth lots of options.

This is great app for reminder. task always show in notification center even after reboot or mobile 📱 switch off. Great developer.

Works great for reminding my self of this game to add to my grocery list it Todo items. Needs a "start on boot" option so I don't have to open the app every time I restart my phone to get the notifications tho

Really, quality notification app.The best. I've used a lot of other notification apps. Collateral, is far superior, easy to use and love the option to "stick" my notification etc in Notifications panel.

excellent app. the design detail is excellent as well

This would be perfect if you could collapse all the notifications into one that could be expanded so that it takes up less space in the notification tray.

Terrible. No reminders unless you pay. Had a "watch short video to unlock" feature but after watching the ad it still wanted me to upgrade to set a simple reminder. Avoid.

Awesome app, exactly what I was looking for. But I am seeing the notifications disappear after sometime. Is there any way to keep the notifications as long as I want??

Utterly unreliable. Notifications only trigger randomly.

Really good idea and clean implementation!

The free version is totally useless.

perfect app, does exactly what one would need

It's very nice app i like it because it remembers me everything!

Great app Is it possible to hide note details in notification? To show only Title

Best app for reminders and to dos

Best reminder app out there.

not up to the mark

A must have.


The best notification reminder ever!

Awesome app

Have been a 𝗺𝗮𝘀𝘀𝗶𝘃𝗲 fan of this app for a couple of years but now reminders only work once. I set up certain ones to repeat weekly but they never appear and the repeat element of the task resets to null. I thought it was because I had the beta version so rolled back to this version. Still with the same problem. Could it be an Oreo issue?

👍 great app. Only negative is that it does not bundle notifications as is standard on android. For example, if you have 4-5 reminders pinned in the notification bar they should "bundle" into a single item that can be expanded like most other apps do (gmail, ESPN, etc.). Instead they all stay separate which is a little messy. Even an option to toggle bundling on/off would work. Excellent app all around.

Awesome Notification Bar Application, the one you want. Collateral The notifications on the notification bar dont collapse into a single scrollable notification, to condense the notification bar. By tapping the scroll-down button on the note in the notification bar you can view the note in the notification bar with about a 145 character viewable restriction. The notification bar contains a notification to create a new note. The note can be viewed & edited by tapping the note in the notification bar and on the notes 3 dot info button in the program. Tapping the note in the program toggles viewing the note and shows status of the options of the note being pinned or unpinned, the importance of the note, and whether it's shown on lockscreen. Long pressing the note in the program toggles the note on and off from being enabled or disabled on the notification bar represented by changing the background color to white. The info button on the note gives options like remove, create, edit/open, delete, copy details and can be accessed in the program by tapping the info button, 3 dots on the note. There is about a 650 character limitation of the details in the note editor. Starting the editor enables options like notification color, pin & unpin, importance, show on lock screen, add action, add picture, add reminder and all these options are available while editing. On the left of the program menu bar is the main menu where you accessess settimgs & options. And to the right of the program menu bar is an extensive filter for searching for notes in the program. My only concern is the notes don't condense on the notification bar into a single scrollable note and the editable and viewable character limitations. Still gets 5 stars tho, it's the best.

Love the app, but recently it's causing the most wakelocks of anything on my device, and I don't even have any upcoming notifications. Had to uninstall. Will try again in a couple of months.

Used to love this app, but sadly it hasn't been updated for months, and now reminders won't work anymore.

Great app.

Very best


I loved this app. It helped me create reminders to improve see my productivity not just at work, but on daily chores. I haven't been using it for weeks, but I must say I am absolutely appalled by the updated app when I tried to use it today. What happened to the really intuitive and meaningful UX of the original? Stacking categories (notes then lists) in a vertical list 📃 is not helpful, especially when you have a multitude of notes. That creates frustration (1). (2) it is now terribly difficult to execute primary functions to any note or list. The primary function of each note or list was to allow easy editing, star, create notification... As per the original design, no? Why is everything hidden within the tiny 3 dots now? Clicking on thearge surface area of any item just displays more details. Which is more important? A prominent way to display more details, with a tiny hidden area to access functions, or the other way round? The intuitiveness and meaningfulness of the functions r lost in this revamp, and it generates a lot of user frustration. 5 stars to 1 stars. Terrible UX design here

Awesome app, plus the developer is great, fixed multiple bugs in two days.

Material Design 2 makeover is really beautiful. I think it is one of the most beautiful apps on the play store right now. The concept is very simple. Just put whatever you want to be reminded about and it will show up in notification shade. The problem with the notification is that it doesn't show the full note... After few words it cuts off. Instead of a single line it should show complete note by default. Solution: Press enter and begin new line.

The newest version has bugs. I no longer see notifications and pinning doesn't help either. The older version was better.

Embarassing... It was working well, but after the redesign everything is bugged. It also drains battery way more than before. I've tried to contact the dev and have him to fix the issue, but after several months not much improved.

Love this app. Works great and is designed well. Using along with automatic I created my own custom widget to make new note or list. The widgets provided are also super good and allow creation of new note or list etc. Great app I would not be without.

Everything seems perfect. The only problem is the note show in notification is taken too much space if i have more than 2 notes. Hopefully you can make it combine option for all the note show at notification

I paid once. Why need to pay again! Useless app!

Pretty great and feature-full. Developer is quite responsive to issues

Cloud sync doesn't work at as expected.

Paid for this in good faith then they change the rules and try and put their hand in your pocket again. Nope. Use Droper instead

Great app, really very helpful for me as I got too many things to do in a day.

Paid for this a while ago and reinstalled. Very pleased with this. Love what it can do.

Well done!

A good one

Its perfect.

installed and bought on one device. Installed on second device I own. Synced first with Google account. Tried to sync second device, but sends error message I already own the app and consequently does not sync... So this makes the app useless to me. Uninstalled and expecting a refund

Still great, best in class, but latest update appears to break photos in notes. (Again) On stock Nokia 6.1 Oreo, had to revert to v4.5.7 That works just fine.

Pretty decent app but pro version(you can't do much with free version) costs you and you still have adds so you have to pay again to remove the adds. Business strategy that I can't understand

Since I change my handphone from Infinix to Xiaomi, why the icon notification cannot change at notification bar? Only show the logo application not the icon I choose when I create notes. How to fix this, please? Because this app very important for me. .

Like it so far! Love how your notes can go on your phone notifications so you're always being reminded of your tasks

Really good BUT...... On the notification we cannot see more than 6 items on checklists Please fix this

Keeps notifying me of note I deleted. Now there's no way to stop the notifications and keep using the app.

The app is very useful for my special events, notes and lists .....

Unique idea and brilliant execution.

Not bad

Best app in this category...I would like it more if I could set reminder for every 2 hours for two,tree or for ever and i could hide it when I confirm I do that

Nice, beautiful, and simply works! Some of the UI choices take a bit getting used to. I would love a web version or ability to sync from a websource somewhere, maybe Google Keep or something. I have a lot of recipes that are pulled into Google Keep. So being able to push the ingredients list from Keep to Collateral without having to manually transfer them would be awesome! 💯

I bout the premium features of this app for 130 INR and it still shows ads. Later i found out that I have to pay 130 more to just avoid ads. Worst marketing strategy. Too costly for an app of this size to ask for cancelling ads. Ads should be cancelled with the premium pack itself. Nobody asks double money just to cancel ads after purchasing premium. If you really are so desperate then at least have the courtesy to mention it clearly.

Should be a 5 🌟 app, if not for having to pay premium features, and ad removal. That's stupid!!!!. Thank God for ad blocker. Also noticed that developer doesn't respond to comments here. What ashame, because the app itself is fantastic.

The one thing I would add is a daily To Do List that automatically updates the date, but that's just a tinny thing that would made this app even better

Not a bad app but... Despite paying for the app I still have ads popping up and notifications don't show up after reboot

Cool app but you can easily swype from the notifications and remove them.

Thanks for making it! .

Very very useful.

It's so helpful

Really liking this app, even on the free version. App updated with autocorrect support. I'm happy.

Necessary for my life

Literally the only app with good notification notes with working pinning functionality. Has every feature I've been looking for on an app like this. I love the fact that the bullet lists stay inline on the notification box. Very nice work.

Love this app. Have been using it for a year now. But recently, it has started to have some issues. The notifications I create (the ones that cannot be cleared), stay for some time and then just disappear in some time. I have to always go in the app and make them "appear" again. If that gets fixed. It'll be great..

This is the best notes app. Simple, tons of futures and very good looking. It also has the best developers ! Contacted them with a lil' problem and they helped my right away. 5 stars

A good app, but very buggy. The task do not always sync with the notification. Plus only 7 tasks are shown there.

من همیشه دنبال همچین برنامه ای می گشتم... I always looking for a app like it... Very useful for me!!!

The most useful notification reminder app. I've used it so much I couldn't not buy the cheap premium upgrade so I did. "Why don't I just get a normal reminder app?" you might ask, well for me personally, I never open reminder apps, either I forget or I don't want or don't know when to use alarm reminders. Collateral makes your reminders right in your notification tray which is genius and you won't have to open any reminder apps because practically your notification tray IS the reminder app.

I'd like a Nougat quick settings button to create a new note. There's a button there already to clear all, so it should be simple to add another, right? This way I could get rid of the persistent new note notification.

It's great. My tasks are right on my lock screen glaring angrily at me.

Doesn't work as expected. Duplicates entries randomly.

Great app, terrible fullscreen video ads blaring at full volume.

Please add option that enables deleting items from a list by ticking them off.

Crashes every time when opening the app

It doesn't allow me to add a reminder, it's unclickable. Works simply as a notepad (paper notepad).

Improved a lot. I like how it allows me to make short notes in notification without opening the app.

This app is almost perfect for me, it needs a 'Sort by' option

Incredible 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Takes up a minimum amount of space in notifications. Has some customisation too. Great app

Very good app. It works great for notes and to do lists. It is not intrusive and has a good design and all the features you could ask for. Especially the notification bar. Edit: latest version is completely broken. Don't get the app until it's fixed. Useless right now

Used to be incredibly reliable and one of my most new apps. Since latest update it is now unusable. Clicking on to notification says brings up a toast saying "please create notification again" and reminders are cancelled and don't show up in notifications

Design wise, this is a great app for organisation. However, my last three lists have glitched with the above error message, meaning functionality is poor (possibly occuring after editing an existing list's colour/icon)

I also now have issues with notifications that cannot be removed. Or it states please create notification again. Hope this can be fixed!! Great app with nice features!! Was looking for this for a while...

As others, I get the message to recreate notes. Also, I notice when you have a list of, let's say, 3 items and you add a 4th, it adds the list a second time. One with 3 items and one with four. Other than that, it's worked fine. And I think the design itself is great.

Considering how extremely important the function is, this app has become unreliable post the recent update. Notifications no longer work as they should, and duplicate ones are made, not to mention that existing ones get automatically removed as well. It's been a while too, I don't see any heed from the developers. I'm waiting for a fix, else I'll have to move to another app, sadly, cause this one WAS awesome. And devs, we need a list widget too. It's a given at this point.

This app is exactly what any forgetful person that lives on their phone needs in their life.

Tapping on notification now says "please create notification again" so now I end up with the same over and over again

Fix the reminders, I have some repeat daily and they keep being removed as reminders?!

Nice app. Does what it says.

Must have

Still some bugs re: changes to "list type" (numbers, bulleted, etc.) not affecting existing lists, and occasionally duplicates an entry depending on where I added it, but otherwise really well done. Love all the icons - maybe include letters of the alphabet? ("L" for "call Lisa," for example)
