has updated posted StickyBrain, its personal productivity application, to 1.2.1, fixing several problems when running StickyBrain under Mac OS X.
StickyBrain incorporates a “sticky note” interface and can store any type of information including text, pictures, sounds, file/application links, contacts, web and e-mail addresses, and more. The update also enhances the operation of several key features. The Find function now searches the title of a sticky in addition to the sticky text itself. The built-in spell checker now correctly handles phrases with words joined by hyphens, en- and em- dashes, etc. Overall application launch speed has also been improved, especially when a lot of stickies must be opened.
StickyBrain also has HotKeys, which are designed to make it easy to transfer information to and from other applications. For example, if users are surfing the Web and come across an interesting article, they can press a special key combination and the article will be saved as a “sticky” even if StickyBrain isn’t running. HotKeys can also be assigned to individual stickies so the text from the sticky can be pasted into other.
StickyBrain also has password management features. The folks at Chronos say that you can go to any Web site and the software will instantly retrieve the user name and password associated with that Web address.
StickyBrain is currently available both as a Carbon application for Mac OS X and as a classic application for Mac OS 8.1 or later. The 1.2 update is available as a free download from the
Chronos Web site. The online purchase price for StickyBrain is US$34.99.
