Editors' Review

Stickies allows you to write down things, so you don't have to remember them. This free utility may look like a basic tool, but underneath the surface you'll find options for quite possibly everything you would ever want from a sticky notes app.

Pros

Set a sticky on a timer: Whether it's a predetermined day and time or just a couple of hours from now, Stickies allows you to hide your notes and have them appear exactly when you need them. There are even options to create secret notes that are shown and hidden via keyboard shortcut.

Stickies manager: Using the stickies manager, you can group and store your stickies, bring back stickies that you might have accidentally closed, and even attach individual stickies to the windows of third-party apps, so they always go together.

Highly customizable: In addition to text formatting, you can change the color, shape, and opacity of the sticky windows, add scrollbars, roll them up when you don't need them, etc. Once you get that perfect setup, you can save it as one of several presets.

Cons

Unintuitive: As powerful as the app is, don't be surprised if it takes you a couple of attempts to accomplish your task successfully. We've found that some options in the app, such as the coupling of a sticky with another app, are not as intuitive as they could be.

Cannot combine images and text: Given the number of options present, we were very surprised to see that there isn't a way to insert an image alongside regular text. When we tried dragging an image into a sticky, we just got the path to the inserted image.

Bottom Line

When compared to Windows' default Sticky Notes app, Stickies is light years ahead. From the higher level of visual customization to the advanced features like snoozing stickies and coupling them with other apps, this free software is a must if you are in the habit of writing down your thoughts on your computer and feel that the stock Sticky Notes app is too restrictive.

Everything is fine.

"Too Complicated!"

June 01, 2014  |  By hymnsinger100

 |  Version: Stickies 7.1e

Pros

Honestly, I haven't had it long enough to figure out any pros! Just downloaded this morning.

Cons

I can't find the stickies that I created, they are just gone. I've looked everywhere, done every search, tried to use the "help" function, looked deep into my directories and they are just not there. I expected them to automatically save to my desktop, but no. I have wasted an hour and a half, PLUS I have to rewrite the note that I thought I had saved.

Besides that, it crashed my browser when I first started it, and also added an unwanted toolbar, changing my search engine from Google to Bing. Not Happy with Stickies right now!

"Way Too Complicated..."

January 31, 2014  |  By Imogen7Ryan

 |  Version: Stickies 7.1e

Pros

You can attach images. Good option to share notes.

Cons

Way too complicated. For such a presumably simple task to do, there came an extensive user guide with it - and I mean 'extensive'! Hard to understand as well. This, for me, is not user friendly at all. To customize the notes in an easy way was not there unless I'm missing something.

Summary

For such a simple job, I found this to be very difficult to understand let alone use. I would need a week to get me around how to actually use it. Sorry, but just not for me.

Creating and editing sticky notes should be an easy task and for me, I just found it extremely complex.

"Super Program"

January 10, 2014  |  By Snetta

 |  Version: Stickies 7.1e

Pros

Simplicity of use
Depth of options
Design
Usefulness

Cons

None i can think of yet except a minor that you cannot change background colour on an individual postit(unless i missed it) though font,size,text colour still possible but you can set a background on default postits aswell as text font,size and colour.

Summary

Only really just installed this program and yes it's just a sticky program but really needed to review it. the creator (/creators) have gone to a lot of effort in this program. depth of options and the simplicity to navigate around. the pure fact you can customise an individual post-it with font, size and colour but then there's also a default you can customise speaks volumes. i installed this on my laptop and will uninstall the other software on my desktop for this-its free and brilliant. well done 'stickies' software creator.

"JUNK THIS APP IS TROUBLE"

January 05, 2013  |  By azloafer

 |  Version: Stickies 7.1e

Pros

Nothing good about this app!

Cons

First of all this app is not even good for FREE. Inspite of some 5 star reviews, I could not get this program to work properly. I tried to remove it and re-install it three times. I download my share of apps, but this is junk. When I went to remove it I found that some parts of the program have become entangled with others. The control panel could not take it all out. Even a manual attempt left parts of the program that cannot be removed. I have never had trouble with other apps that I downloaded. Use great caution if you still want to try it out. Do a "restore point" so that you might be able to remove more of the leftovers!

"Small, effective, efficient!"

October 06, 2012  |  By hsumra

 |  Version: Stickies 7.1d

Pros

Multiple notes at once.
Ability to minimize notes but still have on top of all windows.
Notes can be hidden and then restored.
Timers (due date/alarm)
Can print from note pad.

Cons

No direct way of having it start when windows turns on, this would be a great add in.

Summary

Great application for anyone in sales or customer service. Would also be useful during studying or research.

A must have for someone who is always on the PC and getting calls and emails and needs to keep notes organized before inputting into tasks or calenders.

I wish it had the capability to sync with Google Notes like the GNotes application for Android.
