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.

What's new in this version:
Version 1.1 may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes.
So convenient to have on desktop. We are always using our computers, so your notes to self are clearly there to remind you instead of having to look at a calendar or paper notes. I'm a lifer for this wonderful & did i mention FREE download.
The only thing i don't like about this program, (which is probably a slight glitch) is that is on top screen at all times. It should stay on desktop, but NOT on top of whatever you are reading or playing. It's cumbersome.
A simple no frills program that takes the place of "Notepad Icons" that require both a file name and save to destination location for desktop use. Sticky notes can be saved and read effortlessly. The program performs as promised.
If your expectations for a small desktop note application are minimal the program presents few if any drawbacks.
A practical and functional program that works as promised. Best of all is its cost which of course is nothing.
