Managing your day-to-day life is not an easy job to do. There are so many things for concern – housekeeping, shopping, children… And what about cousin’s birthday that you always forget or important phone numbers? Undoubtedly your working place is covered with dusty yellow (or blue, or pink) sticky notes. If so – PNotes is right for you. Throw the physical stickies away and replace them with virtual ones on your desktop.
