Efficient Sticky Notes Pro 5.60 was available as a giveaway on August 5, 2019!
NB: 1 year of free updates license.
Windows XP/ Vista/ 7/ 8/ 10
My only complaint is that the registration box wouldn't accept a "copy" of the code; I had to enter it character-by-character, which wasn't easy. Anyway, it registered right away, and I like the program. Thank you to GAOTD and Efficient Software!
A fine giveaway event, no broken promisses and simple activation and even transferable license to the portable pro distribution too plus a years worth of free updates. It does not apear to do anything negative to the system it is running on and we can download localised dictionaries for the spell checker. I would like to see the addition of event driven sticky notes where certain events trigger the displaying selected notes... like at a certain time of day each work day or when last window is closed or if a particular windows program is launched... Of course one can argue that that's not what sticky notes are... well why limit sticky notes to littering the computers desktop even when not needed like real sticky notes do on the real desktop. Computers are supposed to improve on the original concepts limitation not be bound by the originating concepts always littering the desk until thrown away. Ultimately the developer could add a simple event driven scripting language to show or hide specific sticky notes to draw attention to notes when they are relevent so one does not learn to ignore them because they have always been there since creation. For the time being because the vendor is being more than fair with the giveaway conditions and the program apears to not be obviously broken I will give this a thumbs up.
Are there limitations on the number of notes, size of notes and/or storage capacity of any kind?
At first I did not find the small window with my first note on my almost full desktop.
Guess it will be good help to remind myself!
Stupid me! I just saw the readme.txt file and found the code. Sorry for the interruption.....
I downloaded and installed the program with no problems. However, when the program starts I get a small window saying this is a 30 day trial and asked for registration information. I could not find anything about regisgtration on the GAOTD web page. How do I register it?
I'm using 5.50 at home, I believe. I like it a lot and need to go ahead and buy it. I don't have the "Pro" version, though. Need to read up on what the differences are between versions. Thanks for a great product...
Can this offer be installed as a portable version? I see a portable version on the website.
Kyle , You can try registering it with the key from Readme while the developer replies..
Hi, i can confirm.
Portable version, downloaded from official dev's site, works fine with the key from this giveaway.
Witch, I was able to run and register a portable version. There is also a free mobile version that syncs with the computer(s). It is a little clunky but it works.
And what does that means? Does it mean; no more free updates after one year? or does it means that after one year, all the updates that were free, will be disabled? And what will happen to the program if the updates are expired? Will the program work? Is it Like in a trial version that limits features?
I believe it is high time GAOTD will make it mandatory for all vendors to include in the description, clearly and in simple words, for how long the license is good for, if there are any limitations or conditions.
And by clearly I mean, that if it is an extended trial version for one year, the vendor will not hide behind “with annual updates” and such, It will say clearly what will happen after one year from installation. What is the limitation, if any features that exist on the commercial version are missing, and if the giveaway is the latest version.
Great ideas. But don't look for this to happen anytime soon.
Takeshi, The company has told us: "1 year of free updates license." Isn't it obvious that it means that the program is free, including updates, for one year. After that, the software still works, but we can't get any more free updates.
I SUSPECT Efficient Sticky Notes Pro ranks among the BEST 'post-it note' apps for Windows ... because it seems almost identical to NOTEZILLA by ConceptWorld (a reputable developer in business for OVER a decade).
I have the paid PRO version of NoteZilla installed on W7 & W10. It is one of my ESSENTIAL personal productive app (especially since I have dual monitors and can reserve a corner of Monitor #2 to hang my post-it notes).
The FEATURES of Efficient Sticky Notes Pro and NoteZilla are nearly identical. Both offer a highly effective way to create, display, manage, organize, and archive post-it notes on a PC.
The VERDICT: If your work & daily life generates a lot of 'scrap' notes -- such as jotting down phone numbers of callers or whatever, I highly recommend trying Efficient Sticky Notes as an efficient way to reduce paper clutter on and around your PC desk.
This version does not have the network sharing enabled, so it is not "Pro" like you can buy on their site. This is the only reason I downloaded it :/
I've been using the old program ATnotes version 9.5 for probably 15 years on several computers. You can still find it. Small footprint and after you get the hang of it quite useful software. I'm surprised no one has come up with something like this since 2005.
Frank J, I gave you a 'yes' vote ... because you offered a great tip on ATnotes. Its website and download pages still exist and work. AND that simple 'note' app software is likely better than the native note app on Windows 7. But I suspect the note app of the current builds of W10 is more robust.
Re: 1 year of free updates license. Is this good for a year or lifetime? If, after a year, only free updates expire? Thank you. I felt the wording was a tad ambiguous.
Christopher J., Yes, only free updates will expire.
