This is software that helps create Post-IT like notes that are transparent and can be visible anywhere on the window. You can place the note anywhere on the screen.
MemoCactus is a simple tool which helps you make notes of events, dates, appointments, etc. Any note that you need to be visible all the time. Rather than being confined to a virtual sticky note, the text of your notes "floats" on the screen. It gets superimposed on top of all the other application windows and the wallpaper on your screen. Thus, visible all the time like the paper Post-It note. You are able to define the text color, font to be used, date to appear. The color defined can be a solid color or a gradient fill. The notes can also have a "see also" that can let you attach additional info in the form of a file. The see also will allow a hyperlink to be added too.
The program is absolutely easy to operate. On installation and first run there are some default settings that you are asked to do. On regular operation there is a text box that you use to enter the note. There`s another text box for "see also" with a browse button for finding a file to attach. Then you set the date when the note should get published. Two buttons allow changing of fonts and color. The fonts control is in Windows style. You get to see the font samples, size control etc. You can set whether you want solid color or not on the color control screen. While the functionality is very simple it still fulfills a useful niche, the program is incredibly easy to use. Once you start trying it, you get so attached!
