Post-it notes are a great way to jog your memory about things you have to do during your day. However, if you work behind a computer all day, it makes sense to have a way of doing it on your desktop.

K-notes widget provides an alternative to Apple's Stickies widget but adds a little more functionality. These include handy enhancements such as unlimited text size, re-sizeable text, collapsible notes and expandable notes (join multiple notes together). Like Apple's own widget however, it also allows you to choose text font, text size and the sticky's color. The only thing that should be clearer is how to delete notes. You have to hold down the Option key and waiting for black close dialog to appear which is a bit annoying.

k-notes widget is a useful tool for anyone that likes using sticky notes to help remember things.
