  • Generic Company Place Holder TurboNote+: desktop sticky notes

Do you find yourself scribbling notes on paper stickies--and then losing them? Do you spend way too much time at your computer? You might be a candidate for TurboNote+ desktop sticky notes.

TurboNote provides all the typical functions that similar programs include. You can easily create notes, format them to your taste, organize and search your notes, and arrange them on your desktop as you choose (or hide them altogether). But TurboNote goes beyond many note programs by letting you e-mail notes (provided you use an SMTP client) and send them to coworkers over a LAN; and it includes scheduling and reminder features, so you can use it as a basic PIM.

The program is relatively easy to use, and the interface is very clean--maybe a bit too clean. To access the program's features you right-click the system tray icon and choose from a drop-down list; to choose note options, you right-click the note and scan a drop-down list. TurboNote has so much to offer, it's easy to get lost in the lists.

TurboNote is free for 30 days, which gives you plenty of time to work your way through its features and decide if the program meets your needs. It's certainly worth a try if you need some help getting organized.
