Efficient Sticky Notes
Transfer your sticky notes from the real world to your desktop with Efficient Sticky Notes

If you’re one of those people constantly writing little notes to yourself, you might be bemoaning the fact your desktop looks messy and cluttered. This is where Efficient Sticky Notes comes into play. The program allows you to build up a collection of sticky notes which you can – when the need arises – place on your desktop to remind you of its content. And unlike real sticky notes, these can be tweaked without having to tear up the original and start again.

Once installed, launch the program and you’ll see a window where all your notes are stored. Create a new note and start typing: click Save and close and the sticky will appear on your desktop. As things stand it doesn’t look particularly striking, so reopen the note (either from the main window or by double-clicking the note itself) and start playing with the advanced controls: change the sticky colour and font text to make it stand out more (or less). You can even link files to your notes for easy access, plus decide if the sticky is currently displayed on the desktop or not.

Notes are shown in the main program window where you can organise them into custom groups. The biggest disappointment is that notes can’t be scheduled to appear at certain times, or linked to alarms – for that you’ll need to take a look at Efficient Software’s EfficientPIM software.
 

Verdict:

A decent tool for managing virtual sticky notes on your desktop, but Efficient Sticky Notes is let down by a lack of scheduling features.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.82

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.81

- Want to easily record long Voice Messages? When recording a Voice Message, just swipe up to lock recording so you can continue to record without keeping your finger down.
