"Useless Clutter, pop ups; Not Free"

September 20, 2010  |  By eatdrumz

 |  Version: Post-it Digital Notes 4.8

Pros

I really can't think of any

Cons

Loads you desktop with garbage
Pop up's
Advertisements
Not free, as advertised

Summary

When the program installed, 5-6 big adds came up on my desktop, which would have been o.k., but there was not way to close them! Another popup kept insisting I had not installed the latest program, (ran it twice, just to make sure.
It is a 30 day trial, and is not free. That too would be fine, if they had said that BEFORE I downloaded the program!
Pop ups for product info kept appearing....it was like being caught on one of those sites that just keeps opening windows, and you cant stop it.

I never did get all the junk off of my desktop, so I just un-installed the thing.
I don't know if it was just me. Some of you folks really liked it, but, on my system, it was a complete mess!
If I could grade something in the negative, this would be it.

"Too intrusive..."

May 25, 2010  |  By ablefton

 |  Version: Post-it Digital Notes 4.8

Pros

It has the potential of being an excellent product with, sometimes, over the top animation and noise...which can be shut off, after you've poked around a bit. Other pros...Hmmmm. See my Cons statement.

Cons

For a company as sophisticated as 3M, this Post It app is remarkably amateurish and intrusive. Every wacky way in which they can try and get your attention to buy the free trial is over the top. It's noisy and intrudes way too much.

Summary

3M definitely doesn't believe in a "less in more" philosophy here. Forget it. There are other options.l

"Lacks fundamental setting"

January 05, 2010  |  By GoodGuyToo

 |  Version: Post-it Digital Notes 4.8

Pros

Pros are not applicable for my point. See below.

Cons

The basic idea with a note is that is should be visible. None of the "note" sw offers this. They totally hide or smack it on top off everything. If you simply let it stay on the desktop, you succeed to 99,99%. Without it I say it is pretty useless.

"As easy or complicated as you want"

November 15, 2009  |  By SheLuvsHerIpod

 |  Version: Post-it Digital Notes 4.8

Pros

Ability to change keyboard shortcuts, notes can easily be hidden, no software glitches

Cons

Creating a template should be simpler and the ability to set a default font exits but the chosen font doesn't 'stick' (perhaps these are trail limitations - not sure)

Summary

I tried a freeware digital notes program for a full day and realized how great something so no-frills could be. Unfortunately, I had issues with notes that wouldn't go away and notes that wouldn't 'unroll'. It was also way too easy to X a note away. Overall, it was good, just not good enough.

I searched CNet and Post-It Digital Notes was (and is) a top download with a lengthy trial. It works flawlessly and has features that allow you to make digital notes as complicated a 'system' as your heart desires. The ability to add tabs to the bulletin board is brilliant but, for me, 'out of sight, out of mind' rules most days. And, my calendar is full enough so I rarely set alarms.

My system is very straightforward - when I think of something, I type out a digital note and leave it on my desktop. When the task is completed, I put the note in the 'trash' - that's it!

A lot is written about Getting Things Done (GTD) so of course I've read the books & blogs and tried some of the available software. There are two simple streamlined GTD principles I apply in my use of digital notes and they are:

1. Write down every single thing you have to do, should do, are thinking about doing, are overdue doing, will have to do, etc.
2. GTD would have you create folders for computer work, etc. Since I use post-its for both my business and personal lives, I created a header system that includes @computer, @phone, @work and @home work. Rather than create Bulletin boards on which to pin notes, I create notes on the fly and leave them scattered on my desktop I no longer need a digital note reminder.

I can haul my laptop anywhere and work but it'd be Post-It Digital notes would be absolutely perfect if the program created a bullet point list or notes format that synchs with a smart phone. Even without such, I'm satisfied.
