Tell me the truth. You use Stickies on your Mac, right? Stickies are Apple’s digital version of the famed Post-it Note.
Walk into any office cubicle farm and you’ll find plenty of analog Post-it Notes stuck to Mac and Windows PC screens. Stickies on your Mac works much the same way. Create a new note, write something, stick it on the Mac’s screen. What could be easier?
Stickies Meet Notification Center
Sticky Notifications is what Apple should do with Stickies and Notification Center. How it works is remarkably simply and it’s exactly the kind of thing you can use everyday.
Sticky Notifications looks like a bit like Stickies. It’s yellow. That’s where the resemblance ends.
Open a new Sticky Notification, enter a Title, a subtitle, and a message. Then, click the Notify button.
The notification then appears in your Mac’s Notification Center (and it works with Growl which also works with Notification Center).
Sticky Notifications works with your Mac’s System Services, triggers URLs in Safari, and starts life in the Menubar (but it can be hidden).
And here’s what it looks like when the notification pops up.
When you send a Sticky Notification to Notification Center it pops up just as a normal notification (and similar to Growl notifications).
Cool, right? Not so fast. Sticky Notifications is affordable and useful, but needs a little more baking to be worth the nominal price tag.
Hello? Why isn’t there a day and time option to run each Sticky Notification? And, what about an iPhone or iPad version so Notifications sync between devices?
It’s really nice for what it does but it just needs to do a little bit more.
