Editors' Review

Hott Notes offers users an opportunity to keep themselves organized with a virtual pad of yellow sticky notes. This program offers a simple set of tools to create notes, but does not live up to all its promised potential.

This freeware pops up instantly and allows users to quickly sketch down a note and paste it to their desktop. This is much like any note-making program on the market. However, what makes Hott Notes enjoyable is how it handles its added features. Where many programs are cluttered and sometimes confusing, four simple tabs allow users to customize their notes. Note writers can adjust the size and font of their note and even center the text with one tab. Another allows the user to change the color of the note to anything imaginable. A third tab, and the most unique option, allows users to adjust opacity, making the note as transparent as they choose. Finally, a simple alarm can be set to alert the user of a note.

While we have no complaints about this program's ease of use and performance, Hott Notes did make a claim that users could also draw pictures. After testing we did not find any option to do so. Even without the option of doodling, users looking for an extremely simple, free notes program will appreciate what Hott Notes has to offer.

"Simple and perfect"

October 29, 2013  |  By destum

 |  Version: Hott Notes 4.1

Pros

Simple, aesthetic, customizable, easy to use, if I had the time (and skill) to write a note program this is exactly what I would make.

Cons

A bit buggy sometimes, interface a little clunky, only minor cons for the great features of the program.

Summary

This is exactly the note program I have been trying to find. I can customize the colors, opacity, font even, to fade into my desktop. The fact I can change the font face as well as size, the color of the notes, everything. It blends into my desktop, making it unlike other note programs that I find simply gaudy looking on my desktop. It has a lot of great options, I really like this program.

"Thing's good but has problems"

October 24, 2012  |  By Quadranta

 |  Version: Hott Notes 4.1

Pros

Has checklist that is unique unlike other desktop notes
Can resize
Has themes
has scribble note option

Cons

Lots of glitches - for example, not being able to save your changed font. Among these is that the HNT file does not show up anywhere. And you also cannot save your themes.

Cons that are not glitches - not able to completely customize fonts. You can't have a variety of them in one note. It sucks.

Summary

Good program but needs some fixing up.

January 27, 2011  |  By vioxxmann

like the icon on taskbar and the note stays on your wallpaper and not your page.
