Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009

Those in the market for a simple, free program for jotting down quick notes and creating desktop reminders will not be disappointed with ATnotes.

Right-clicking the system tray icon lets you determine how your notes appear and behave. You'll find options for changing the note color as well as the font type, size, and color. Notes can display texts such as the date and time when you launched it. Right-clicking a note lets you access other options, including the ability to insert file, URL, or program shortcut in the note and schedule reminder alarms (with the ability to select an accompanying WAV file). Also, you can set recurring reminders and alert you by flashing the note or launching an application when it expires. Moreover, ATnotes has hot-key support, and allows you to search and organize notes into folders.

The ability to password-protect notes or choose an application or document on which they will appear would've been great. But, as is, its functionality suits busy home or business users alike. Overall, ATnotes is easy to use, effective, and best of all, free.
