POST-IT like programs
Here's a list of tested software so far (18 in total). I found a lot more, but most weren't even worth the bandwidth:
CRAP (awful looking, lack of features, not configurable enough, ..):
cs desktop notes
easy sticky note
gyz task notes
sticky note organizer
sticky reminder note
tenebril stickynotes - 3d skinnable
looks good. skinnable. transparency. alarm. not possible to make the note smaller than default. maybe the biggest "flaw": PAID
quick note plus
looks good. skinnable. trash bin. hot keys. transparency. very configurable. drop shadow. main "flaw": PAID.
looks good. no transparency. contains preset color themes. PAID.
looks ok. transparency. preset color themes. no docking. can't "roll up" the note. freeware.
voice sticky notes
looks ok (menus too). no transparency. attach recorded voice msgs. alarm plays audio and video. nothing REALLY special. PAID.
-upload/download the notes to/from a server
-slide and dock notes to left/right side of the screen
-configurable language and charset
-configurable color, font, formatting
-easy bullet (for todo-lists)
stickies 5.2a by tom revell
freeware. pretty nice. skinnable. transparency. network support. pda support.
I tested post-it pro v3.1 (latest) by 3m too, but it didn't work "right" with winXP.
I made this list for myself, to keep track of testing, but I thought it could be of use to other people.
If you'd like to recommend any other for me to test, just email me.
