Editors' Review

+

Take down all those annoying yellow reminder papers off your office wall and keep them neatly organized on your computer desktop. Simple Sticky Notes lives up to its title by providing a simple way of reminding yourself of important notes.

This free program embeds itself in the system tray and offers very little beyond the capability to make and sort notes, which is perfectly fine with us. From the tray, users create a new note, which pops up as a look-alike yellow Post-it note. However, this one can have its color changed and its transparency adjusted thanks to the pull down menu at the top of the note. The size can also be adjusted on the note, but that's the end of the formatting options.

The tray menu gives users the opportunity to show all notes and sort them to stay organized. While the notes aren't automatically stacked on top of one another, but staggered, this is still a great way to look at notes that have been minimized and forgotten. While we would have liked to have seen an alarm system like some other sticky note programs provide, we have no complaints with Simple Sticky Notes' straightforward system and its fine way of keeping notes for free.

"Works great for me (Windows XP)"

January 24, 2015  |  By StockPiler

 |  Version: Simple Sticky Notes 2.5.1

Pros

It is a useful program for everyone who has a list of things to do. You can change /edit the headers of the note, you can minimize a particular note or have all of them displayed. It is turning out be a useful app for everyday use.

Cons

Maybe it won't be as attractive to people who want to actively manage complexity.

"Don't download - Malware!"

June 09, 2014  |  By JakeTheBeerman

 |  Version: Simple Sticky Notes 2.4

Pros

Earlier versions worked fine - an easy to use and very useful application.

Cons

Be sure to have Malware Anti-Malware software loaded on your computer first, because you're going to need it. Not only did this version fail to run (I'm using Windows 7), but it came loaded with Malware. Suddenly I had pop-up ads springing up like weeds. First, I had to manually remove the "ssn.exe" file, using Windows Task Manager. Then I ran Revo Uninstaller to clean out Simple Sticky Notes. Finally, I ran Malware Anti-Malware to get rid of the dozens of malware files that had infected my PC. Save yourself the trouble. Don't download this app. Sad, too, because I really liked the earlier version.

Summary

I'd give it zero stars if I could.

Pros

There aren't any. Skip this product. Run!

Cons

1. Adds an unwanted toolbar.
2. Automatically changes to your Home Page.
3. Unwanted additional add-ons to Firefox.
4. Unwanted changes to your search-engine.

Find another post-it option. This is bad news.
