-- Developer has chosen to abandon direct selling of this app to end-users. Instead, Sticky Notes v2 is now exclusively available at the MacCrapStore. Very sad. I'd like to update/upgrade my existing, registered 1.5.x version, but I refuse to use the MacCrapStore. There are very legitimate reasons for this. Just google "Why the Mac App Store Sucks" for a taste of the issues and drawbacks. I really hope the developer reconsiders the removal of direct sales of this app at his web site. He is instantly limiting who can try out, update, and purchase this app.

Could it be possible that it syncs with the iPhone?

Can't you just use Stickies? It's free and by Apple, I don't see why anyone would pay $7 for some useless program.

Apple stickies don't let you define colors. Apple stickies don't let you attach notes to applications. Apple stickies don't let you send notes over the network. Generally, Apple applications are the 80% solution. They do what they do. They leave extra features up to 3rd party developers. If you want those extra features, you find those developers. And if this developer would let me TRY the app (no MacStore) and let me BUY the app (if I liked it, no MacStore), I would. SIGH. :-(

Vlbrown: Sigh, I agree. One thing Apple stickies does do that this one doesn't is allow me to actually use it and get a feel for how it works. I'd buy it from the MAS but only if I could try it and know it works for what I want. Again . . . sigh.

The font selection in the preferences does not work for me! The letters of Sticky Notes on my 17' Macbook Pro are much too small, when I choose a new note. So I tried to change the fonts in the preferences. But still every new note has the small default letters. There is no change. Any idea? Thank you.

Well, like many good apps, this has gone to the App Store -- I have problems with that business model, but I don't blame devopers for trying to make a living. This is a nice upgrade, and the program is just too damn useful not to continue using it, and for me, the price is minimal for how much I rely on it.

Sadly, I have to agree. I am very leery of AppStore-only. I'll probably like the app; it sounds good. But I really like the try first model. And the "app store only" model just rubs me the wrong way. Dear Random Sequence, please don't join the cult. I would realy like to try your app. I currently use Stick Em Up but it doesn't allow me t change the colors and I was looking for an app that would. Now I'm here and I'm tempted but... Mac Store Only? That's a line I'm not willing to cross just yet.

I'll add my vote for a trial version too. As a developer it's very frustrating that the App Store doesn't allow timed trials. As a user it's very important to run something first to see whether you like it. I would love to try this app.

I gotta say that I love Sticky Notes and have been using it for years. But now it is only available through the App store and you cannot do the upgrade from within earlier versions (I've got 1.51). This stinks!

Moreover, I shall not be trying it. If I can't try an app before buying it, I do not buy it. I do not approve of a "trust me, you'll like this, just buy it!" attitude.

Just to be clear, I'm not trying to slam this developer or accuse him/her of anything shady. This is primarily a problem of the App Store, I think. But as another posted indicated, there are oodles of problems with that. I'm guessing we'll see the rise of a new generation of purchasers who are willing to readily part with their money without first knowing truly whether a program works for them. Maybe I'm just old school. But in this economy, even $6.99 is money I have to budget carefully.

It does indeed stink. I wish there was a way to offer upgrades into the app store - maybe one day there will be. Until then, I've lowered the price for the Mac App Store version to what the upgrade would've cost if available directly.

I've got an Android phone. UNtil recently, the Android Market had a 24-hour return policy. Now it's 15 min. (The Mac App Store doesn;t even have that). Yesterday, I purchased three "extensions" that didn't work as I expected and I deleted them. Under $2 each but it adds up when you don't keep the app. I'll consider it sunk cost and donations t the devs but I'm feeling burnt right now. Next time, I definitely test immediately. The Mac App store doesn't even give me the 15 minute window so... sorry Random Sequence, but no way I'm downloading this blind. I don't want to start a relationship with the App tore yet.

is this abandon-ware? some major bugs that the developer has not fixed for a long while. also seems like an endless beta. bonjour could be used better than just sending a note. for example, networked notes. what is good: unlimited colors to choose.
