Sticky Notes Apps

Not everything needs to written and kept for archival. Sometimes you just need a note in front of you to either remind of something in the short term, like remembering to call someone, or something that needs to become second nature at a job, such as greeting someone over the phone in a way that best reflects the company you represent. That’s where old fashioned sticky notes can come in, but why kill trees when there is software dedicated to functioning in the exact same way? That’s where this page comes in!

Software like Notezilla and Stickies will allow you to put a reminder sticky note on your desktop that can always be visible on your screen. These apps offer all of the benefits of sticky notes with none of the associated costs to both your wallet and the planet.
