NotesHolder stores your reminders and special notes, much like similar note-making software, but this program has a twist. Thanks to its simple design and inventive way of being discreet, this download pulls ahead of the competition.

This program was simple to work with and required no trip to the Help file, though there is a fine one for users who need a little more direction. Notes appear in a small, blue screen, and stack on top of one another. The notes also allow for scrolling, which is a fairly unique feature compared with other note programs that mimic yellow sticky notes. Creating notes was simply a matter of filling out the empty title and note areas that are made quite obvious by the designer. In addition, there are easy ways to set reminders so that notes leap to your attention, and to adjust the color and text of any note. However, the feature that we were most impressed with was NotesHolder uncanny capability to get out of your way. When the cursor leaves the note program for a few seconds it disappears, but comes back when the mouse moves to the far right of the screen. Many other programs require users to click on a desktop icon or a tray icon to bring back notes, but NotesHolder smartly eliminates this step.

Thanks to this free program's easy navigation and intelligent way of hiding itself we highly recommend it for busy people needing to catalog notes.

Developer's Description

NotesHolder lets you quickly type in any piece of information so that you can easily find it when you need, read it or print it out for your convenience. This is the most effective way to store all your notes without cluttering up your desk with PostIt and sticky notes. Unlike the other similar applications, NotesHolder is very thrifty with your screen space. You can even turn off NotesHolder icon in the system tray. But if you move your mouse cursor to the edge of the screen, the list of the notes sorted by the time of creation and divided into categories will pop up. Click once to create a new note or to edit an existing one. Click once more to print the note.
