Stickies is a PC utility I wrote to try to cut down on the number of yellow notes I was leaving stuck to my monitor. It is a computerised version of those notes.
The design goal behind Stickies is that the program is small and simple. Stickies will not mess with your system files, or write to the registry. Stickies stores information in a single text-based ini file.
Stickies will never support animated dancing figures, or play "Greensleeves". They are instead yellow rectangular windows onto which you can put some text notes. Once created, they will stay on screen until you take them away. Just like a real sticky piece of paper.
Once on screen, stickies will remain where placed until closed, even through reboots
Stickies appearance can be customised; fonts, colours and buttons may be changed, and styles saved. Stickies can be resized.
Stickies can store text or images
Stickies can snap to each other and to the sides of the screen to keep them neatly lined up
Stickies can be attached to an application, web site, document or folder so they only show when it's on screen
Stickies can be transferred from one machine to another either over a TCP/IP network connection, or by using an SMTP mail server or MAPI client:
Hierarchical friends list, which may be automatically transferred from other friends
Play a sound file on receive
Signature for transmitted or emailed stickies
Favourite friends, and custom lists can be made
Stickies can be hidden for a certain period, until a specified date and time, or to wake every day, week or month, to act as reminders.
Stickies can have alarms set to ensure you notice them at a point you choose
International language, Unicode and RTL text support
Stickies works with Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8
Stickies is small and simple, it writes to a single text file, and does not alter the registry
AD network administrators can use Group Policy to control settings
