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

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.

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.

This is a really nice program. I got tired of "to-do list" programs since I merely was overwhelmed with a big list of text. Then I tried using Cocoa Stickies to remind me of upcoming things. But whereas Cocoa Stickies is a really, really great program (look into it), I still ended up with a bunch of notes all over my screen.

SketchBox keeps everything much more easily organized, and I really like the ability to set alarms to reminder notes and such.

I would love it if I could change the colors of the somewhat drab gray background against which the notes sit. But other than that, this is stellar.

Pedrotaquelim had trouble on 27 May 2008
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!

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 bothering you with a save panel. Closed Stickies are always accessible via the thumbnail view. You can stick individual notes to the Desktop if you don't want them to clutter ExposŽ or make them appear always on top for important things.

The drawing canvas has extensive support for graphics tablets with pressure sensitivity and you can use the backside of your pen as an eraser. Save your creations as a PNG file with alpha channel or just copy them over to other applications.

SketchBox also works great as a reminder. You don't have to enter numbers, just wind up the clock with your mouse by dragging or using your scroll wheel.
