Editors' review

Those in the market for a simple, free program for jotting down quick notes and creating desktop reminders will not be disappointed with ATnotes.

Right-clicking the system tray icon lets you determine how your notes appear and behave. You'll find options for changing the note color as well as the font type, size, and color. Notes can display texts such as the date and time when you launched it. Right-clicking a note lets you access other options, including the ability to insert file, URL, or program shortcut in the note and schedule reminder alarms (with the ability to select an accompanying WAV file). Also, you can set recurring reminders and alert you by flashing the note or launching an application when it expires. Moreover, ATnotes has hot-key support, and allows you to search and organize notes into folders.

The ability to password-protect notes or choose an application or document on which they will appear would've been great. But, as is, its functionality suits busy home or business users alike. Overall, ATnotes is easy to use, effective, and best of all, free.

    "Couldn't Manage Without It"

    December 31, 2011   |   By Old Dog New Tricks

    Version: ATnotes 9.5

    Pros

    - Easy to create and edit notes
    - Customizable colour, text, borders, and a lot more
    - Outstanding Facility to add audio alerts

    Cons

    - Whats to not like

    Summary

    For people with lousy memories like me, or those who just require a reminder, you need look no further than this application. It's stunning. I'm amazed that there's been no revision since February 2007 - guess it's hard to improve upon perfection.

    "This is software I cannot do without!"

    February 12, 2011   |   By ereiding

    Version: ATnotes 9.5

    Pros

    Helps keep my mind intact. Easier than real sticky notes or carrying a notebook, my appts, special phone numbers and email addresses are right on my computer desktop - impossible to lose or misplace. I've used this utility thru 3 computers!

    Cons

    I really can't think of any Cons!

    Summary

    This is a very simple and compact program that has changed my world -- no, seriously. I have problems with my memory and finding that important stuff is hard. So I just click on my ATNOTES icon and do a mind dump onto my desktop and, voila!, can't lose my note. I've been using ATNOTES since I discovered it about 10 years ago (I need to upgrade, I'm still, I just noticed, at Version 7.4). And it's one of the first things I load when I get a new computer. This is GREAT software!

    ""Simply The Best". I can't believe this is free !!"

    May 01, 2010   |   By gerbs59

    Version: ATnotes 9.5

    Pros

    Extremely simple and user friendly. The best basic, yet powerful sticky note, appointment reminder, alarm that I've ever tried. Nothing extravagant or fancy, no nonsense. It just does what you want it do. I've installed this baby on all my computers.

    Cons

    The only con is the fact that I have wasted my time with so many other sticky notes and reminders and only recently stumbled on this little bundle of joy !!!

    Summary

    I think i said it all already !!!

    "Handy, easy, flexible"

    January 16, 2010   |   By jlrtd

    Version: ATnotes 9.5

    Pros

    Easy to change colors, set alarms, search the list of notes.

    Cons

    Somewhat limited in choice of fonts for notes.

    Summary

    I used this product for 10 years on a previous computer & wouldn't be without it. Better than Outlook in that notes set with reminder times pop up right in my face so they get noticed. Simple to create, format and size notes. Very simple & easy.

    "Tried them all, this is the best"

    April 01, 2009   |   By 9dosus

    Version: ATnotes 9.5

    Pros

    There is no other program (free or paid) that offers as much functionality and great looks at this one. I've tried them all. You can customize everything about these notes, including appearance (color, transparency, etc.) and even set reminders.

    Cons

    None at all

    Summary

    Without a doubt the best out there. If you need a sticky note program that can be dead simple or as complex as you want it to be, you can't go wrong with this.
