-- 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.

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.

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!

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.

For me, this does what no other application that I know of (shareware or freeware) does: allow you to attach sticky notes to applications - that made it a must-buy for me. This means that I now truly get the reminders and to-dos that I need to see, when I need to see them - they're not constantly in my face, cluttering up my workspace, especially if they're not immediately pertinent to what I'm doing. Paperclip does something similar, and while I'm sure it's a fine product from a good developer, it attaches its stickies on a per-window/per-document basis, and according to some reviews only allows for one sticky per window/document. That means that for my needs, for now anyway, Sticky Notes is what fits the bill. I just wish development on this app were more active.

Does what it says on the can. Stable, clean and useful -- particularly the ability to attach notes to a particular app. "Magnetic" docking of stickies keeps things neat. All the benefit of Apple stickies, without the clutter. I just wish there was a centralised window to browse ALL notes, as in Edgies. Otherwise, good value and a reasonable price.

I wonder whether any of the people decrying this app have actually taken the trouble to test it - or it's the traditional "Why isn't it free???" rant of the freeloader... I just tried it. It's not going to change the world, but it's pretty cool - especially the application-association thing. It's worth thirteen bucks to me. Going to register.

Says it's 1.5b2 in the about. So either they forgot to change the version # in the about screen or this is not the upgrade!

It's amazing to me how many of the "reviews" on MacUpdate and VersionTracker are by people who obviously haven't given the software a full testing. To compare Sticky Notes with Apple's free Stickies is wrong... Sticky Notes adds a number of huge features that make it a definite buy! First, you can attach any sticky note to an application. I use this feature constantly... This way, the stickies I need when that application is running show up when that app does. You can arrange the sticky notes in a very subtle manner so they don't draw too much attention to themselves, too. Second, the stickies are incredibly easy to arrange. They're like little magnets and will line up however you want. Third, you can use Rendezvous to send sticky notes to other people on your local network. This is huge, and we use it all the time in my house. Fourth, you can add hyperlinks to web URL's as well as to folders and documents on your hard drive. This means you can set up a sticky note with a link to that deeply nested folder that you sometimes use with this one application, and you don't have to add it to the Finder or other places. Very cool. Finally, you can add graphics and other media files to sticky notes, and you can invoke a little formatting palette to do some basic text formatting. All in all, this is simply a much better version of the Stickies idea, and well worth a try!

when a similar and free product comes with every mac what is the point of making a competing product? charge $5 and maybe some folks will get excited about synching ical with a stickie note. personally i dont know why you’d want to do that, but i know someone somewhere has been waiting to do it for some reason-- but i doubt they are willing to pay the asking price.

In fairness, I should point out that the developer and I did ultimately establish contact. After some research on his part, he was able to make some corrections which made the program very useful when running OS 10.2.8. Consequently I no longer think the program fraudulent at all and compliment him on his willingness to make adjustments.

I found that it didn't work, at least not on 10.2.8. Stickies went away after I turned off the machine. Didn't seem able to save them. No way to contact developer to solve problems. Wasted my money. Seems a fraud.

Minimize All, Expand all, Cascade and Tile all do nothing on my machine. Default color is the only one available...cannot change note color (colors greyed out). Note with pasted text was not saved on quit. No instructions with download. Pay for it? Pay for what? (1.1.2 v-36) G4 Quicksilver 896 MB RAM MAC OS 10.2.6

This app is basically a recreation of Stickies with a few additional benefits. The most significant is the ability to modify existing or add additional background colors. Biggest plus with Sticky Notes is that note titles (on window shaded notes) are not truncated as they stupidly are with Apple's Stickies. The developer biggest boast is that Sticky Notes will snap in alignment (big deal). Too similar to Stickies to charge so much....should be freeware IMO.
