Quick and powerful sticky notes for your desktop

Like most small business owners, we end up jotting quick notes on a sticky note and then attaching it to our monitor. Problem is that we ended up keeping these notes, including important contact details, on the sticky notes for ages. The stickiness loses its effectiveness after a while and they easily drop off our monitor and on to our desk. Once this happens, the office cleaner may simply put the note in to the trashcan.

Recently I ended up losing a direct phone number to a key contact who was wanted to sponsor a section on our corporate website. Trying to get in touch with this contact was near impossible. Switchboard were reluctant to give out his information and his PA clearly wasn’t passing on our messages. We did get in touch, finally, but it taught us an important lesson.

Stickies is an electronic version of the standard sticky notes. You can add a virtual sticky note to your computer desktop and, when you shut down your computer, your sticky notes are stored on your hard drive. Better still, you can iconify or hide a sticky note, so you can reference it at a later date. You can create multiple notes, assign a colour reference to a sticky note and even include images and other media to your notes.

Stickies goes much further and enables you to keep your notes in sync with your other computers or simply move them to another machine. You can use your notes to remind you of a forthcoming event, enabling you to set an alarm or timed event so you see both the event and associated notes.

What's new in 8.0c?

- New API events '509 desktop sticky moved' and '510 desktop sticky sized'
Stickies now uses less CPU if there are no attached notes
Bug fix which prevented backups from starting until Stickies had run continually for 24 hours
Possible fix for occasional crashes when using the Restore function
Bug around selecting a colour from the fader changing the shade fixed
Bug with sizing stickies and stacks from the bottom snapping too small (including to zero height) fixed
Fixed bug with skin 'fixed size' indicator not being refreshed when size mode changed
Stack indicators better refreshed when dragging stickies into a stack
Searching stored stickies containing a single quote (') character now works

Verdict:

Enables you to create coloured sticky notes for your computer desktop

Almost perfect!

Incredibly useful program. Been using it for years. The only thing that it is missing is the ability to mix graphics and text in the same sticky.

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
