CNET Editors' review
Stickies combines the best and most important features that you could want in a notes program with the added glory of being free. The program's main feature, the sticky note, can be customized on nearly every level, from font to color to behavior. Once loaded, the program installs a yellow sticky pad in your QuickLaunch bar. Double-click on it to load a new sticky, or right-click on it to access saved stickies and configuration options.
Fonts, hot keys, formatting, opacity, default window size, alarms, and more can all be tailored to your needs. There are multiple default settings for different users, alarm options can be sound-based or visually based, or both, the sticky can be attached to a program window, and the text can be locked so you don't accidentally delete important information. SSK files can be imported to skin your sticky experience, and you can use your network connection to send notes to co-workers. There's PocketPC and Palm support, and you can also easily export stickies to a removable drive and load them on a different computer.
Despite all these features, Stickies weighs in at less than 1MB and uses only about 20MB of RAM while in use. It's not quite as light as air, but it is far more environmentally and aesthetically friendly than covering the edge of your monitor with paper notes.
From Zhorn Software:
Stickies is a small and simple PC utility. Stickies will not mess with your system files, or write to the Registry. Stickies stores all information in a single text-based INI file. Stickies will never support animated dancing figures, or play "Greensleeves". They are instead yellow rectangular windows onto which you can put some text notes. Once created, they will stay on screen until you take them away. Just like a real sticky piece of paper.
What's new in this version: Version 7.1e has changed maximum text in a sticky from 265000 to 614400 characters.

"JUNK THIS APP IS TROUBLE"
Version: Stickies 7.1e
Nothing good about this app!
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!
