Software for Productivity
sideNote appears as a tab on either the left or right side of your desktop, and you simply click on it to make it appear. Hide sideNote by clicking on the  “sideNote  icon" at the top. If you are working in  full-screen mode, then you can click on the sideNote icon in the menubar In the preferences, you can change the font size and style, the theme color (white or black), where sideNote is placed (left or right), and transparency. Click on the anchor to have sideNote always appear above all windows . Add a new note by pressing the "+" button or by pressing “⌘+ return". Delete a note by selecting the note and pressing the "trash" button, or by pressing “⌘+delete". Edit a note by double-clicking on the note, pressing the "edit" button, or by pressing "return". Finish editing by clicking away from the note, or by pressing "return" three times.
The great thing about sticky-notes is that you can just look at it an know what it's about. No folders, heirarchies or steps to get in the way. They are quick! But, they can get messy. I was tired of having to constantly rearrange sticky-notes on my Mac. Also, didn't want the notes to always be there, and don't even get me started on stickies in dashboard! So, I created sideNote. sideNote is a quick note application that arranges your notes in a list. It automatically saves the date and neatly displays your entire note. It's the way quick notes are supposed to be done. Not to complicated, but just right for jotting something down, or making a quick list.
