    This is a very nice little desktop note app except for two things, or maybe it's only one thing. I have to ALT=Tab through all the notes on the desktop to get to the application I'm trying to access. I tried reducing the # of notes, by hiding the reminders. The reminders did not remind. :) I don't know if it is because they are not visible on the desktop or not. If you don't mind the inconvenience at tab, tab, tab, tab, ad infinitum, you should like this little sticky. Me, I am looking elsewhere.

    Perfectly simple yet complex. Good Job.

    Having used Zhorne Stickies for about 8 years I was at a loss when my bosses bought me a Mac as it wasn't available on OS X. I searched around until I found Globonote and haven't looked back. I have been using it now for about a month on the Mac after testing it on a PC. I am very impressed with this little app, it does what it says on the tin, reliably and is very easy to use. The pop up reminder facility is very important to me as I need to call people at certain times on certain days, with different colours for different types of call. This works brilliantly and the support has been great considering the programmer doesn't have a Mac (thanks William). The only thing I miss from the Zhorne Stickies is that you could delete stickies and they could be retrieved whenever you searched as you could set it to keep the last however many you wanted. Unlike most of the other notes they don't have to clutter your screen as the are easy to hide or park. I highly recommend this app as I have looked at most of the others and I consider this to be one of the best around for the Mac.
