GENERAL PRODUCT INFORMATION
Chronos calls its product "The best utility you never knew you needed." StickyBrain is a personal productivity application that incorporates a "sticky note" interface. But thatis where the similarity to the standard Stickies program ends. StickyBrain is the ultimate information storehouse. It helps users organize all of the miscellaneous information that clutters their lives and desktops.
StickyBrain is for stuff that doesnit fit in your regular brain. It can store any type of information including text, pictures, sounds, file/application links, contacts, web and e-mail addresses, etc. To make all of this information easily accessible, StickyBrain includes a powerful filtering system that the user can customize as needed. StickyBrain is built on a robust word processor with features such as automatic spell checking, search and replace, page formatting and multiple undois.
One of StickyBrainis most powerful features is called Hot Keys. Hot Keys makes it easy to transfer information to and from other applications. For example, if the user is surfing the web and comes across an interesting article, they can press a special key combination and the article will be saved as a stickyeven if StickyBrain isnit running! Hot Keys can also be assigned to individual stickies so the text from the sticky can be pasted into other applications.
Password management is a chore that faces anyone who uses the Internet. How does one keep track of all the names & passwords for secure Web sites that accumulate over time? With StickyBrain, a user can go to any Web site and the software will instantly retrieve the user name and password associated with that web address.
StickyBrain provides many other features to help users stay organized. These include to-do lists, contact lists, alarms and an infinitely customizable interface. Each sticky can be assigned a different color, texture or background picture. To keep information safe from prying eyes, StickyBrain even includes a security option.
StickyBrain requires Mac OS 8.1 or higher including Mac OS X. The application occupies less than 1 MB of disk space and uses less than 5000K memory.
StickyBrain is normally priced starting at US$34.99. You can find more information on the product at Chronosi Web site. To get to the free download/registration offer, click on the "Try StickyBrain for free" link that is at the top of the home page.
