Magic Notes is a simple application that allows you to add sticky notes to your desktop with pending tasks. The program will remain on your system tray and you will be able to control its operation from there. For the sticky notes, you will be able to customize their appearance (select font, color, alignment, and size) and transparency level. Sadly, your notes can only contain text.
The notes can be moved across the desktop the way you want or you can also lock their position. You can email a note directly from the menu and you can set alarms so that you never forget about important events. You can also set repetition for the alarms and pop up a note to show before triggering the alarm. Other custom actions include the execution of a certain file or playing a certain sound. Sadly, the program isn't very attractive, but you can customize almost everything in it through the Preferences menu.
In short, Magic Notes is a complete application for the creation of desktop sticky notes, that isn't very attractive but certainly deserves a try.
