    "As easy or complicated as you want"

    November 15, 2009  |   By SheLuvsHerIpod

    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.
