SketchBox is a Sticky Notes Manager that supports graphical and text notes that can be used as reminders. Notes can be arranged via drag'n'drop in the thumbnail view to create little storyboards or comics.

Each Sticky consists of three layers: The drawing canvas, a little text editor and an intuitive alarm timer that combines analog and digital elements. While editing text the drawing layer is still visible in the semitransparent background and vice-versa.

SketchBox is designed not to interrupt your workflow. You can close Stickies at any time and they will remember their position on screen and their content without more...

What's New

Version 1.4.1:
  • New menu item / shortcut to center a sticky on the screen
  • Stickies can now be deleted with the forward-delete key
  • Delete button included in the default toolbar configuration

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.4 or later

Looks amazing. The camera feature is broken on 10.8. Not sure why. I get a weird empty window in the middle. The image doesn't appear.

I've tried multiple commercial and free sticky note programs and this one works the best for me, it's simple, doesn't slow my system down and I've never had any problems with lost notes after a year of use. I would suggest two things to the designer: allowing users to adjust the transparency of notes would be great and enabling some sorting/folder option in the main screen so all notes don't appear by default. That said, thank you, this really is fantastic software.

It is a great app. There's a little app you can use for free that will add transparency to any cocoa app. It's called keep afloat. Works with this app.

Unfortunately, Under Snow Leopard this cute little app crashes, and after the crash it didn't want to start again at all. Quite a pity, for I'd gladly support it, pay a fee if it were available as a shareware.
I only hope someone else will come up with a similar idea.

Just one feature request and one troubleshoot:

- In the preferences give the option to hide the app automatically once it is on the background.

- The stickies flicker a lot when I draw or just select them

oh... I had my first SketchBox crash already... and I lost all the stickies I had created... well I was just experimenting it for fun, but... it is not a good sign. ;-) improve stability maybe...

I'm on a G4 450Mhz, OS X 10.4.11

thank you!

Stickies on steroids. Pretty handy little application. Love the stickies with writing/sketching with a graphics tablet, very cool.

And now I want to add that the developer has been great at responding to requests. Several of mine are implemented in this newest version, and it didn't take the developer long to do that.

Although this program is free (unbelievable, to me), I am making a donation for it. There is a link on the developer's page for doing that. I am not an official spokesperson for the developer, or getting any special deals, or anything else like that. I just think that since so many of us are benefitting from this fine program, the gesture would be nice. I for one would be willing to pay for this if it were shareware.
