A few years ago, I was completely new to computers and the internet, and after learning just barely enough to check my email, I decided I wanted a "sticky note" type of program. I probably downloaded and tried dozens of them, but as I learned how to use them, I became more and more picky about what I wanted my notes to do. When I found PNotes, and learned how to produce the notes that looked and behaved how I wanted them to, I had no reason to look any further. I have been using them for around 4 years now I believe (unless they haven't been around quite that long, but I think that's fairly accurate). I recommend PNotes to anyone I know, that has a computer, or is thinking about getting one. There is no note program easier to use, more functional, or more customizeable than this program, and I would know. By the way, this is one of maybe 3 reviews I have ever written, and if it's not "rave" enough, I can go on...
JUst unmatched. You should try this yourself and then agree me.
With all the projects, goals and items I need to get done this year, Win 7 Sticky Notes default was starting to not cut it for me. In order to maintain focus and motivation on several projects, I needed the notes to stay up at all times for quick reference. I also had some privacy concerns as friends or relatives come to visit, and there was no way to hide or save notes. This is where PNotes comes in. So far the program has delivered everything I want so far. I love the feature to be able to save, lock (password), and hide all my notes when visitors come to the house. Excellent feature. The program is intuitive and a simple right-click brings up a context menu where you can set all your preferences. So far I haven't found a limit yet, and would recommend this program to anyone needing to maintain notes, save notes, and have private notes.
Take it from a guy who's been used post-it programs every day for the past 10 years--this program is by far THE BEST post-it program I've used. And that INCLUDES ones that I've paid for! Post-it programs have been an indispensable part of my workflow for almost 10 years now. A good one can boost your productivity incredibly. That's why, even though I rarely buy software, I've actually bought "premium" post-it programs before. So I'm ecstatic to have found PNotes. It's far better than the others, and free! What's more, it keeps getting better. And the developer is very responsive. The program is useful out of the box, but if you take some time to learn and explore the features, it's surprising how powerful it is. I've found it to be very much worth investing time into the learning curve.
