Be truthful. You’ve done the same thing, right? If so, you’re a recovering Stickyholic, too.
The fact is, Stickies were useful back in the day when the Mac didn’t have dedicated apps to handle all those little chores like passwords and to-do items. Today’s apps even sync up all those important items between Mac and iPhone and iPad.
Who uses Stickies today?
Amazingly, everyone in my family. My wife and kids clutter the Mac’s screen with Stickies. Not me. I tried PostPlus on my Mac.
I love it. And hate it. It’s a Stickies app on performance enhancing digital drugs.
PostPlus looks like Stickies, works like Stickies, but does more than walk the walk or talk the talk (except for one glaring flaw).
First of all, you can treat PostPlus windows just like Stickies. They’re good for notes, memos, but don’t use it for login ID’s or passwords.
PostPlus can change each note’s background to a different color, and even gives a control for transparency. You also control fonts, font size, font color, and alignment.
Second, here’s where PostPlus is more fun to use than Stickies. One click will shrink each note to a single line that can also float over other onscreen windows.
Wait! There’s more! PostPlus also has alarms which makes it excellent for simple to-do items.
And, it can store notes in Dropbox to be synchronized between Macs.
What’s missing here? It’s the 21st century.
Any Mac app with a price tag and information to store needs to sync it all up somewhere in the cloud with other devices, including iPhone and iPad.
That’s just the way it’s got to be.
A Mac only app is a dinosaur. Sure, some Mac users only use the Mac and have no need for information to be stored everywhere at the same time. But that’s the future.
