Among the many software apps available in the market to create electronic sticky notes, Freebie Notes stand out from the rest due to its highly-customizable notes, the possibility of converting them into precise reminders, its note database for you to store and edit your notes, and the option to save the text on your notes to file easily.

This absolutely ad- and cost-free tool will let you produce nice-looking notes for your desktop in no time. You can even schedule a reminder or a set of reminders for each of them with the utmost precision. You can use the built-in calendar to select start and end dates, an exact time of the day for the alarm to go off, set it to repeat at a given time for as many days as you wish, and set it to appear on your desktop at startup or once a day, on a given day of the week, every week, bi-weekly, or every X amount of weeks. The possibilities, as you can see, are endless, and I find this high level of flexibility to be probably the program’s main asset. You can also attach actions to your reminders and alarms, such as launching a specific app or open a URL you determine. The alarm itself can also be customized by using your favorite sounds and skin. You can test your notes and reminders beforehand to make sure that they’ll behave exactly the way you want them to.

Of course, the note itself can also be highly customized to adjust to your preferences. You can set a favorite color scheme, tell the program to put it always on top (or not), change the level of transparency, as well as customize the font, size, color, and alignment of the text or the texture of the sticky note.

All notes will be stored in the program’s own database, where you can go back at any time to edit a note, to search for a text, to delete a note, to re-use its contents, to print it, or to save the text in the note to file for further use. For a free note-taking application, the amount of features and the level of flexibility and customization that Freebie Notes offers are assets that are not easy to come by in most similar tools. Certainly, an app worth trying.
