Is there a stickies app/widget for iPad?

Id like something where the sticky appears on the homescreen.

Basically I want to be able to see a reminder to do something every time I open or turn on the iPad. Is there something like this?

Cool..but is there a way to make those stickies appear on the home screen? Or a way to at least have a notification that theyre present every time the device is opened? (so that it is like literally sticking a paper sticky to the ipad screen?)

Using widgets

But how are stickies different from say a Reminder APP which can send you a Notification at a Specific Time and they stay in your Notification Area unless you dismiss it ? isnt that something that will work better ?

How? I dl’d the app and cant find the widget. Do you need the ios14 beta?

In ios13 you slide over from the first home screen to your widgets, you can add it there if the app supports it. As far as placing them on a home screen, you can’t in iOS 13. There is no ios14 public build so unless you have a dev account with Apple you won’t be able to download it.

but in 14, you can put them on the homescreen, right?

You might want to try reminders. Honestly not sure if the apps developers will need to update their app to support home screen widgets. Most surely will. The public beta will be sometime this month.
