Digital sticky notes on your desktop

Everyone knows sticky notes, those yellow notes we use everyday to remind us of tasks, missed calls and other important things? You can now use them in their digital version with Stickies!

With Stickies you can replace the traditional sticky yellow notes with more ecological, efficient digital notes that are 'pinned' to your desktop. Stickies notes are much more than small text fragments: you can customize their appearance with new background colors and text fonts, attach a file to them, add an alarm to them and more.

Stickies runs in the background but is very lightweight on system resources. The program puts an icon in the system tray, from which you can access its main functions. Other interesting extra functions are the ability to share notes by email or in a local network, as well as the backup option that makes sure you'll never lose an important note.

Stickies is a handy little program that will remind you of anything – and help you save a few trees!

    Not bad, but if you want notes to become network enabled check ShixxNOTE.
    This is really only stickies program. But if you want something better and you want your note to travel through your LAN or Internet than you consider to install ShixxNOT More
