Easy-to-use note program

Stay organized with this intuitive reminder.

Dynamic Notes is an easy, unobtrusive way to add and manage sticky-like notes to your desktop. Although some aspects of the interface are cluttered, the program is pretty intuitive and allows users to get started making notes right away.

The program appears as a small toolbar than can be moved around a user's screen or minimized completely. Creating a new note is as simple as the click of a button. The Add New Note button lets users to customize their notes with different colors and fonts, as well as set reminder alarms. For users who don't want to bother with all that, the Add Quick Note feature allows users to quickly type a note without the extra options. A particularly useful feature is the Add New Note With Clipboard Text option, which lets users copy text from elsewhere on their computer and then paste it into a note with one mouse click. The notes appear as sticky notes on the user's screen and can be moved around; when minimized, they become small colored squares to the side of the display. They can also be closed completely and accessed later through the program's toolbar.

If the program has any fault it is that the Options menu is cluttered and a bit overwhelming. However, casual users will find themselves able to effectively use the program without needing to access the Options, and more seasoned users may enjoy fiddling with the various customizations. The program installs and uninstalls without problems, but users should be aware that the trial period is limited to 16 days.
