You can add a shortcut to your Home Screen to open a specific notebook (see http://feedback.squidnotes.com/knowledgebase/articles/1179331) or to create a new note in a specific notebook (see http://feedback.squidnotes.com/knowledgebase/articles/1179328).
It does not appear to be possible to create a widget that allows for taking handwritten notes directly on the Home Screen (due to the fact that you need to be able to swipe left/right to get to different pages on your Home Screen). Please vote here if you’re interested in a widget that shows a particular note on your Home Screen (and allows you to open it quickly to edit it).
@Andrew Huges. Hmm, yes, I can see the issue with taking handwritten notes on a screen that is gesture-driven. You would think that these screens would allow widgets to be register that they accept specific inputs including gestures and that the screens would then pass these on to the widgets and not handle them. Seems like a short-sightedness in the implementation.
Oh, and for those that say that one couldn't perform certain actions on these screens if widgets could register themselves as handlers for some of the, well, no, because there's' always some extra space around widgets to allow for gesture input as widget dimensions are restricted. And, at the end of the day, flexibility is the key of Android. Let users decide what works for them and what doesn't.
@Andrew Huges. Yeah, the name-change is unfortunate, but I understand and sympathise with you guys.
Look at the date of this suggestion and the product name... Things have certainly changed in one way yet remained unchanged in others... We still have no such widget support, but, at least we have a less meaningful product name. 😛Andreas Toth supported this idea ·

It's way too easy to lose the history for undo/redo. One just have to accidentally go back and boom, the history is all gone. Not good.
A simple solution around this issue would be for a new setting that, when enabled, will prompt the user every time they do something that would have them lose the history and give them the option to cancel the operation to remain within the document.
