Editors' Review

Post-it Notes, those little yellow pads of sticky-backed paper, changed the world, or at least the way people who live in it leave reminders to themselves and others. When the layers of notes (now multicolor) start to resemble cedar shingles, it's time to clean your computer monitor. That brings up an important point: as big an improvement as sticky notes have been over the old paper napkin method, software versions like Sticky Notes may be better still. For one thing, Sticky Notes lets you organize, search, store, and back up your notes; set reminders, priorities, and alarms; and customize its look and behavior. Plus it'll never get lost in your desk drawer or behind your coffee mug. Sticky Notes is free to try, with a few features disabled, but at $4.99 the full version easily passes the Lunch Test, costing about what you'd pay for a sandwich and drink from the local carry-out.

Sticky Notes resides in the system tray; right-clicking its icon opens the program's main menu, where users create and manage Notes and the program's settings. However, you can also configure hot keys to make Sticky Notes even faster and easier to use by clicking Program Settings and selecting the Hotkeys tab (you can also set General Settings, configure Notes, and more). We clicked Create a New Note, and a new note popped up with the cursor ready. You don't have to click Save or do anything to slow you down; a few quick keystrokes and then click the red Exit button, and Sticky Notes automatically saves your note. When we'd saved a few Notes, we clicked the menu to view Recent Notes, Arrange Notes (cascade or tile) and Search them. Need help? Click Help: Help appears.

There's always room for improvement: for instance, automatic or scheduled backups would be nice to have, though we appreciate the simple but effective Backup and Restore feature that's already a part of Sticky Notes. And you'll still need paper sticky notes when you need to mark your lunch or leave a note on a colleague's door. Pretty much everything else? Sticky Notes has got that covered.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Sticky Notes 2.3.

"A great clutter saver"

September 20, 2011  |  By phil8656

 |  Version: Sticky Notes 2.3

Pros

It is easy to jot down a note. Or cut and paste something for later. Igor even responds to emails.

Cons

Been using it for years and it only crashed on me once. I really like the archive feature for all closed notes. But they were all deleted. Best for temporary filing.

Summary

I use it everyday.

"Starts out good...doesn't last!!!"

September 19, 2011  |  By ladypepper

 |  Version: Sticky Notes 2.3

Pros

Started out good...

Cons

Didn't have any trouble with it at first, but now, it won't stay open. Constantly get a message that it has encountered a problem and needs to close. Also, didn't download PhotoJoy because another reviewer thinks it is malware, not a spyware.

Summary

If it worked right, it would be a great little program; however, don't trust it...out of 35 notes, I lost all but 6. Can't get it to say open because of "encountered a problem", whatever that may be. ALL problems need to be fixed.

"Won't work without buying winzip. Can't get rid of it."

September 11, 2011  |  By M.Hat

 |  Version: Sticky Notes 2.3

Pros

None. You have to buy winzip to open it.

Cons

I couldn't delete the .exe file

Summary

No more of this from this site, thank you.

Updated on Sep 11, 2011

I was wrong. I seemed to have a residual Winzip trial thing in my programs that was stopping me from opening the sticky notes. I take it all back. Ignore my comment.

Updated on Sep 18, 2011

A nice little program.

"It wouldn't open and it won't let me delete it."

July 10, 2011  |  By crinny_nick98

 |  Version: Sticky Notes 2.3

Pros

It puts a nice icon on my desktop...?

Cons

It doesn't even open up and when I try to delete, it says "Acess Denined, Cannot Delete Sticky Notes".

Summary

I suggest NOT downloading this, because you cannot even use it. And then it holds up space on your hard-drive because you can't even delete it.
