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.

    "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!
