Sometimes you need to step away from your Mac for a moment (or to quickly deal with another task), and it can be handy to leave yourself a quick reminder of what you were doing. Many of us use sticky notes or scraps of paper, but there's a better way!
Sticky Notifications works on Mac OS X Lion 10.7, Mountain Lion 10.8, and Mavericks 10.9. It lets you leave yourself quick sticky reminders, using Notification Center (on Mountain Lion) or Growl.
Latest version: 1.0.5 (23rd July 2013)
Sticky Notifications lives in your menu bar, or you can trigger it via a keyboard shortcut of your choice.
You can use it to quickly create sticky reminders for yourself that will stay on-screen until dismissed.
Sticky Notifications will also automatically open any URLs in your reminder messages when you click on the notification, which is rather handy. You can hide its menubar icon if you want, and you can make it automatically launch when you log into your Mac.
It works with Notification Center or Growl on OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion), and with Growl on OS X 10.7 (Lion). You don't need the separate Growl app in either case, but it'll give you more customisation options if you have it installed.
Sticky Notifications integrates with your workflow, too. It provides a System Service so you can make a notification from selected text in any application, and it also supports Automator. You can even create notifications via its own URL scheme, which is great for integration with apps like Alfred.
It works just fine with GateKeeper on Mountain Lion, and is ridiculously affordable. You can buy a license either inside the app itself, or from our online store. You can also buy it on the Mac App Store!
Sticky Notifications thinks you're an extremely attractive person, and would love to have a new home in your menubar. Yes indeed. Download it immediately, if not sooner!
