Pretty good little app

Overall this is a pretty good little app, a lot better than the Apple stickies. Being able to create custom colors is nice but the 2 big features are being able to attach a note to an app and the additional formatting, oh and the snapping helps a lot also. Although, a note to the developer, it doesn't save the table formatting once you close the app. It retains the text but not the table, I had no problem with the lists. Most of the bad reviews are for the expired version which was a mix up in the build release and has been resolved (and no, I'm not in any connection with the developer but am one myself and want to be fair). Fix the table saving issue and expand on the formatting and will take it to 5 stars.

Pretty good

I like a lot about this, but it has some annoyances.
I don't care much about colors, but there is a wide variety of palettes to choose from.
It's convenient that you can make the stickies stay on one desktop or have them appear on all.
It's great to be able to create a table in a sticky, but when it disappears re-starting the app, that's frustrating. This has been a bug for a few months, and I see that it's been reported, but no fix yet.
Better that the Apple Stickies, but not as good as it could be.

Big improvement to stickies

Many more features - Run from menubar or dock—menubar especially convenient. Notes can snap together, easily customize appearance. Inactive notes can fade into background, and much more. Have used this for years, big fan!
