Notezilla

CNET Editors' review

NoteZilla makes a strong case for itself as the virtual sticky notes program most worthy of your attention.

Although this utility doesn't really have a dedicated control panel, right-clicking the system-tray icon gets you numerous options to customize your note appearance and behavior with better-than-average skins and details. Hot-key support will be a boon to those who frequently use the program, while forgetful people will appreciate the ability to set an alarm for any note. If you don't want your reminders invading your personal space, you can decide on which applications or documents they will appear. Notes can helpfully roll up to the title line to conserve desktop space, and can synchronize with Outlook and Palm devices.

This application may not be the cheapest kid on the block, but it handles nicely and can help organize active minds.

    "Love this product!!"

    June 13, 2013  |   By pbhtx57

    Version: Notezilla 8.0.16

    Pros

    Easy to use, reliable, tons of features, great customization options, very reasonable price.

    Cons

    None that I've found.

    Summary

    As stated above, I love this product. I've used QuickNotes for years and finally upgraded to Notezilla, which works very well with Windows 8 (in spite of Windows 8's still glitchy behavior).

    "Really an Incredible & Amazing Sticky Note App!"

    April 17, 2013  |   By Subha_Murali

    Version: Notezilla 8.0.15

    Pros

    I am using both Notezilla version 8 & Notezilla.Net. Its very easy to use. I like all features of Notezilla and i don't know which one to mention here. Anyway some of the features which i like most are,
    -Quick way to create new note by double clicking, right clicking etc...
    -Reminder popping up with original note color, skin & text while reminding, which earlier version doesn't have
    -Quick way to set reminders, tags to a note
    -Filtering notes by different categories such as starred note, desktop notes etc.

    In new version syncing notes with cloud is really great. Hence i can access my notes with iPhone at anytime and anywhere

    Cons

    As of now nothing

    Summary

    Its really great, intuitive and best of all sticky note app

    "Best All-Around Note Program Ever"

    April 15, 2013  |   By starry173

    Version: Notezilla 8.0.11

    Pros

    It is much more than a Note program, allowing you to organize information in the form of notes on "memoboards"...which basically I use as folders. With the most recent change, you can now have any note appear on the desktop regardless of which memoboard it is on...which makes my use of the product even better. I use it to store information that I can later easily find when needed: product codes, serial codes ... notes to myself about particular challenges on certain pieces of equipment. It's the most flexible information storage product I've seen and you can even use it to leave yourself notes and remind yourself of something that is happening at a particular data/time. With the most recent change, they have also made it easy to show and hide notes on the desktop. This program does so much more than you will be expecting. I've used Microsoft One Note and found it too difficult for me to use. The interface on this program is very intuitive. Works well on Windows 8 64-bit as well.

    Cons

    Careful when you change/delete things in a note. The change is immediate. This is a good thing, but sometimes, I have made mistakes and wished I could just restore what I had changed. Actually, if I copy the contents to the clipboard before I start, then I could just refresh the note from the clipboard. Just thought of that right now. Think I will try it. Of course, you could also add a new note and copy the info from one note to another and delete the old note, which would then be available to recover from the trash. Other than being careful when updating notes, I don't really see any cons to this program at all.

    Summary

    Feature rich, intuitive, reasonably priced.

    "BEWARE - Free Version is only Trial You will lose data"

    February 26, 2013  |   By csandstr

    Version: Notezilla 7.0 build 85

    Pros

    Nice program from what I could tell. I probably haven't discovered all the features.

    Cons

    Apparently the "Free" version is only a trail period. When the trial period runs out it removes all your posted notes WITHOUT ANY WARNING so all the notes you've accumulated are gone and you have to PAY FOR THE FULL VERSION IN ORDER TO GET YOUR INFORMATION BACK!

    "Better than Post-It Notes Software!"

    September 27, 2011  |   By jarodsafehouse71

    Version: Notezilla 7.0 build 85

    Pros

    Ease of Use

    Cons

    None as of Yet

    Summary

    Best digital notes software I've ever used. Easy to install, easy to use, and even easier to find your notes. No more sticky notes all over the monitor. They're right on your computer's desktop. Hide them all or show them all with a simple click.

    Sticky to keep on top of all applications when you need it "right then."

    "Free, however excellent note tool"

    June 2, 2011  |   By cranky.shade

    Version: Notezilla 7.0 build 85

    Pros

    Beyond expectation parts:
    - Create new notes in a specific desktop area
    - Minimize the notes
    --> Really great note tool: remind you of what you have to do, but won't interfere in your working space.

    Cons

    No to now? CAN'T complain anything.

    Summary

    Features adapt to all needs and beyond expectation - especially expectation of a freeware), strongly flexible.

    This is the first tool I use for taking notes on my PC. However don't ever think I need any other else.

    "Looked everywhere for a great post-it app. This is it."

    April 8, 2011  |   By DoubtingMoab

    Version: Notezilla 7.0 build 85

    Pros

    Flexible, attractive, easy to use, nice database functions

    Cons

    Really great app - would love to see auto-unfade on mouse-over so post-its aren't visible when you don't need 'em - but really, no cons what-so-ever.

    Summary

    I would buy it again and would suggest this product over any of the many others I've tried to someone looking for a note application for their PC. Nice work!

    "A Gotta Have Tool"

    January 21, 2011  |   By tzcarey

    Version: Notezilla 7.0 build 85

    Pros

    It Just Works Great!
    Easy to set up
    Works on all versions of Windows
    Easy to organize notes in different folders
    Very flexible. Can send text, pictures, paste in Excel tables

    Cons

    No real problems.
    Spell check may be a good feature however i like not having it as it would slow down note sending

    Summary

    When migrating to a new operating system there are a small handful of 'gotta have' programs for me. Notezilla is one of those tools and it has never let me down.
    We have a small home based business where my wife is doing design work in the house and 400 feet away i am doing the laser engraving work.
    Notezilla is excellent for passing information back and forth. It gives both of us a 'paper' trail so we know exactly what each other is trying to communicate.
    Also features like the Reminder are nice. It is all around a well thought out and well implemented product.
