The folks at
have announced a “Super Sticky Promotion” to celebrate the official release of
StickyBrain, which was previewed at last month’s Macworld San Francisco expo.
“Demand for StickyBrain has been huge since the show,” said Jerry Halls, Chronos vice president. “We wanted to do something special for the Mac community when we released StickyBrain, so we came up with the ‘Super Sticky Promotion.'”
Sstarting today, StickyBrain will go on sale for US$19.99 (a 43 percent savings). Each subsequent day, the price of StickyBrain will increase by $1 until the final retail price of $34.99 is reached. Plus, Chronos will offer a special bundle package that includes StickyBrain and their Personal Organizer for $64.95. A 30-day trial version is also available for download.
“For the price of two movie tickets and a popcorn, you get a second brain,” Halls said.
StickyBrain incorporates a “sticky note” interface. But that’s where the similarity to the standard Stickies program ends, said Halls. StickyBrain can store any type of information including text, pictures, sounds, file/application links, contacts, web and e-mail addresses, and more, he said.
“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 undos.”
The application also packs 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. Halls said 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 provides many other features to help users stay organized,” Halls said. “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 (JPEG). To keep information safe from prying eyes, StickyBrain even includes an encryption option.”
StickyBrain is a Carbon application and will work with Mac OS X. If not used with OS X, StickyBrain requires Mac OS 8.1 and above. The applications take less than 5MB of disk space and runs in as little as 3500K of RAM.
