The Sweet Setup interviewed Matt Gemmell, the developer of Sticky Notifications. This simple app is quite useful for short-lived text you really don’t want on a scrap of paper, just to throw away minutes or hours later.
This’ll sound like marketing, but it’s truly not: I honestly use my own little Mac app, Sticky Notifications, about thirty times a day. I never got into formal, centralised note-taking or task-list apps, and it suits me better to just have temporary stickies lying around.
I don’t know why I haven’t written about Sticky Notifications before — just slipped my mind. That said, the app does one thing extremely well: Write a notification that “sticks” like an alert notification from Notification Center, and it will stand on the corner of your Mac screen till you’re done with it.
I frequently use it to gather specs for CMYK/RGB colors that I’m copying from one Adobe app/project file to another (if you’re a graphic designer, you probably know what I’m talking about). It is also handy if you need to remind someone to do ______ when they get back to their desk. My desk at the office is in a room with five others, so when I see the missing person come in I can pass the word on and delete the Sticky.
Sticky Notifications is very flexible for anyone’s given workflow. Check it out, and if you want to hone your Mac-centric work desk environment, get some inspiration from Matt’s Sweet Mac Setup.
