Editors' review

Taking a cue from real-world Post-it notes, Stick provides an equivalent product for your computer desktop. A few differences make the program a valuable asset for any PC. The most noticeable is that notes, when closed, turn into tabs you can then append to the sides of your screen. This makes keeping your desktop tidy a snap. In addition to basic text notes, you also can create Explorer notes, which are actual Windows Explorer windows. You can navigate the file system from within these or even use them for Web browsing.

Each note features a variety of customization options such as window color, transparency, autohiding, and font choices. Though it does lack a few features of the more advanced sticky-note apps, we recommend Stick for its ease of use and excellent implementation of tabs.

    "Overall it's a pretty good service."

    December 19, 2008   |   By Staggered

    Version: Stick 2.8.0.72

    Pros

    I like the tab system for quick spotting of the Sticky note you want.

    Cons

    No real dislikes ... combining type and background colours on the tabs doesn't work properly.

    Summary

    Not quite as versatile or flexible as 3M Post-It Notes ... but I'm sure it soon will be.

    "Very useful, stays handy but not in the way."

    November 18, 2008   |   By danielburkeen

    Version: Stick 2.8.0.72

    Pros

    Easy to move the tabs around, put them in an unobtrusive place. Handy to click and open and close. Don't have to dig around my desk for a calendar or a calculator, or go through the computer menu, they are handy and available.

    Cons

    Haven't really had any problems. Program hung up one time in a month, but don't know that this program was the culprit.

    Summary

    I have tried several programs like this, and this is the one I've kept.

    "Look OK but no surprise"

    November 14, 2008   |   By andrewcsfan

    Version: Stick 2.8.0.72

    Pros

    The GUI look good

    Cons

    The news reader seen unable to delete opened message. The calculator not particularly useful (compare with Window 7). In addition, should able to dock to left and right margin in addition to the top.

    "Not sure if it's what I thought."

    November 12, 2008   |   By chandler-smithk

    Version: Stick 2.8.0.72

    Pros

    So far it is not working for me.

    Cons

    I keep getting a message of an update but it won't update. I thought it was a program I could stick a note on something else I was working on, maybe a document in Word where I needed a reminder, but I am not finding that it works that way.

    Summary

    Just not what I thought it was going to be. I will still work with it to see what real functionality it may have.

    Pros

    simple-easy 2 use-uncluttered

    Cons

    nothing at all- i think it's a real boon to people like me, who tend to be forgetful!

    Summary

    "I would like to tell you that I love it..."

    July 15, 2008   |   By rundmv

    Version: Stick 2.7.0.4

    Pros

    I was looking forward to using this software, as the idea behind it seems like it could be pretty useful...

    Cons

    ...but I could not install it. I kept receiving an 'Active X' error and so I never got to try it out.

    I won't give the software 0 stars because it MAY work great if you can get it installed.

    "Very good Idea & a great start too.!"

    December 21, 2007   |   By Myhrddin

    Version: Stick 2.6.1.1

    Pros

    I've always dreaded going through the Program Files listings and don't like having my desktop always covered with icons. Stick allows me to place a few tabs across the top/side/bottom of my screen and fill 'em up with the shortcuts I want handy. It is surprisingly flexible though and has been more stable than some of the other 'tab' utilities I've tried previously.

    Cons

    I wish that I could select the background color because I'm not a bright white fan, being a migraine sufferer. I would also like it to be aware of and use the same skin that I've got going via windowblinds from Stardock.
