Stickies Makes a Great Free Organizational Tool

Stickies: Free desktop notes program

I wanted to refer a district to a software app that they could use for a high school student that needs a lot of prompts and reminders. They are looking at a laptop with some organizational supports and I thought an on-screen sticky note would be a good way to do it. The student is needing something simple and easy not too confusing.

As I looked over free programs, this one had a lot of great reviews and comments so I am checking it out. The designer says that it will never have animated dancing figures or play "Greensleeves". I like that!

Check out these comments:

  • We are delighted to tell you we are using your program and think it is fab for internal work. It is saving us so much time and is so versatile. (Valerie Lawrence)

  • I've just downloaded Stickies, and wanted to let you know that I'm delighted! After wading through numerous other post-it note style programs, to-do list aps and other similar utilities, it is such a pleasure to find Stickies! It it so simple yet powerful, has useful features rather than gimmicks, and, of course, it's wonderfully free! (Andy Nix)

  • Stickies must be the most efficient, simple, small, compact, fast, useful program I have EVER installed :) (Martin Cleaver)

I've only been using Stickies for a few weeks, but have found it very handy, if not only for the alarm function.
