StickyBrain note manager adds Spotlight support, more

Chronos LC on Monday announced the release of StickyBrain 4, the latest major upgrade to their Mac OS X note manager. Priced at $39.99, upgrades from previous versions cost $25.

StickyBrain is described by its developer as “a really big drawer” into which you can throw all your notes and other information. StickyBrain takes care of organization and searching to help make your collection of digital data more manageable.

New to this release are seven new types of notes, including PDF, image, movie, audio, Web archive, bookmark and files. StickyBrain can do things with specific types of notes like zoom images, pause playing movies and search for words and phrases in PDFs.

Also new in this release is an integrated Web browser that lets users do research from within StickyBrain — users can turn live Web content into a permanent archive. Chronos uses the same Web engine as Safari for this function.

Tiger’s Spotlight search function is supported, so users can find content in their notes. Also new in this release is a more streamlined user interface.

That’s not all — Chronos also claims a 300 - 1000 percent speed improvement, new forward backward buttons in the viewer window, new “FlashNote” window and much more.

StickyBrain requires Mac OS X v10.4.3 or later and 60MB of hard disk space. A 30-day trial demo is available for download.
