Editors' review

Though nothing fancy, this tiny application creates reminder notes to post on your computer screen. Double-clicking Screen Notes' tray icon instantly creates a note, with options to insert text and to change the background color and fonts. Simply right-click the icon to open its small main window. We were able to quickly select which note from this list we wanted to appear and remain on the monitor until it closed down. You'll also be able to send notes to colleagues via e-mail.

Forgetful persons will appreciate this program's ability to set a different alarm time and sound for each note. You can assign your favorite WAV file as a reminder sound, though the demo only plays its default sound. Easy to use, Screen Notes will satisfy anyone looking for a simple, no-frills reminder program.

    "Very handy note taker"

    June 16, 2011   |   By Oldbill70

    Version: Screen Notes 3

    Pros

    Installs easily and has good note management with a resident manager available in the system tray. The note manager has a simple interface that makes all notes instantly available. I also liked the formatting bar available in each note.

    Cons

    Not a serious problem but notes appear all together in an "all or nothing" display and there is no transparency to keep notes visible but inactive. Other minor issues: note resizing is a bit strange in that only the right edge can be stretched

    Summary

    This very simple note taker lacks some of the features of its more sophisticated cousins but it's still very useful for clipping items from web pages or anywhere. It doesn't recognize links or supported sending notes across a network but at least it's not so tempermental to upgrade. I hate programs that can't replace themselves when updating. How hard can it be? Screen Notes doesn't seem to have that

    problem. I'll probably buy it,
