Stickies let you create the unlimited number of sticky notes keeping them in one place as long as you need. You can easily update existing notes and quickly delete notes you do not need any more.

When you create a sticky note, you get a blank note where you can start typing. The Stickies apps lets you import text, images or put selection from the screen into a sticky note. When you finish editing, just click somewhere on the desktop or start a new note.

Another simple but really useful option is the Speech option that lets you read the contents of stickies.

If you have many notes, you can search them instantly and keep them organized on the desktop. The Stickies app provides different Arrange options, making it easy to hide stickies if you do not need them at the moment or Bring All to Front when you need them again.

If you want to put sticky notes on the top of other windows, you can make sticky notes floating with the Floating Window option from the Note menu. From the Note menu, you can also choose the Translucent window option to make the sticky notes translucent, so they do not cover up the opened windows. Some commonly used commands are supported by hotkeys.

With one-click you can minimize sticky notes and expand them again.
