Freeware Alternative to Windows Sticky Notes: iQ-Notes

One of the best Vista and Windows 7 gadgets is the sticky notes gadget. Users can type their important notes with this gadget for easy viewing and reference purposes. But the default sticky notes software of windows is not the best way to manage a lot of notes. Here’s a great alternative!

iQ-Notes is a powerful and handy desktop sticky notes manager and reminder. iQ-Notes offers users an easy way to keep all their thoughts, quick notes, important messages, shopping list, tasks,  phone numbers, and other information in one place on their desktop to remind them of things to do, keep notes of random information and more.

The program can even synchronize our notes with an FTP server, either for backup purposes or to synchronize our notes with a remote location (e.g. our office). Other features include custom priority levels and color coding, encrypted note storage, multi-user support, printing of notes, and more.
