There are many different ways for people to get organized. Many current organizational applications cater to the professional and business crowd. While this is an important market, it is not always easy to find an organizational application that works well in both personal and business environments. The concept behind Squareleaf was formed to help users find a new way to stay organized through very simple listings and to do lists. By keeping it simple, Squareleaf has created a valuable tool for all users.
The idea of organization and scheduling through online applications is not a new one. However Squareleaf presents a refreshing take on the concept by incorporating a very simple method using colors and shapes that works. Keeping it simple and flexible adds significantly to Squareleaf’s capabilities and appeal. Any user can easily manage their daily, weekly or monthly tasks without feeling overwhelmed by the site’s layout.
Upon first glance, the Squareleaf site has a very simple, attractive design. The homepage features a black background that provides a perfect contrast to the blue and white menus and pastel colored post it note style menus. Color plays a big role in making Squareleaf’s organizational system so appealing. Overall, the site’s navigation menus are logically placed and the layout features enough clean space to feel uncluttered.
Users who wish to create a Squareleaf account are directed to click the pink sign up button on the homepage. This directs to the registration page which requires a name, email address, password and simple verification question. After submitting the information, the user is advised to check their email for a verification message to complete registration. The site offers a bit of playful wording before providing a link for the user to access features and explore the site.
The functionality on the site is very basic, although it is flexible and can easily be tailored to the user’s organizational preferences. Square Notes does not require a membership fee or any other fees for account creation and access. All features are available as soon as the user finishes verifying their new account. This makes the site extremely budget friendly for everyone, and encourages even casual users in need of a little bit of personal organization to give the site a try. No comment is given as far as whether Squareleaf will offer a premium account in the future. For now, the price is right for the opportunity to use Squareleaf’s colorful post it notes and features.
The price of Squareleaf would appeal to just about anyone. However those that use the internet or computers in general frequently will get more use out of the site. There are people who still prefer hand written organizers and date books. Squareleaf could be useful for individuals who wish to organize their personal to do list in a way that is coherent, legible, and most importantly, easy to alter to their specific needs.
