What's New in Version 2.1.6
Adds 'List' and 'Table' menu items to the 'Format' menu, for inserting and editing lists & tables respectively
Addresses a build configuration error which caused the previous version to expire
I like this app a great deal, and I am extremely satisfied. I love the versatility and the customizable color palettes. Even being able to change the "names" of the colors in a palette is a huge perk.
There're only a couple of things I would love to see addressed or implemented.
First, when I restart my computer, many, if not all, of the notes I have saved on my desktop get moved and stack on one another. I have to rearrange them every time I restart my computer. Not a huge deal, but it would be nice if they would retain their position.
Second, if I drag a word document into a note or paste it in, all I end up with is a useless thumbnail. I would really like to be able to click on the document and have it open. I could use the sticky notes to declutter my desktop (which I already use it for in other ways). Same thing with photos, I would rather have the photo be in more of a link format than expand the entire photo (or at least the option to change how this works) so that I could store multiple photos in one single note and just click on the one I want.
Finally, the fact that I am unable to affect the color of the font when a note is minimized and the first line shows up in the title actually eliminates some of the functinoality of the different color options. For example, if I want a black note, I can have one, but I won't be able to see the "title" of it.
All in all, love the app and am very grateful to have it at my disposal. :)
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.
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.
