Cloud Sticky Notes – A Free Customizable Sticky Note-Taking App

Cloud Sticky Notes App for Linux
Written by Martins D. Okoi

Cloud Sticky Notes is a free, simple, and customizable Java-based sticky note-taking application. It is recognized by many people using Mac, Windows, and Linux OS since it runs on all three platforms, among others. It has a User Interface reminiscent of the famous Windows Sticky Notes app so it should be easy for anyone to get up and running with.

You can add, edit, and delete notes while offline without any setbacks. Cloud Sticky Notes will automatically synchronize your data whenever you’re online so you will have no need to manually sync your data to the cloud.

The latest version has improved its security standards and now stores notes both locally (on your system) and remotely on Amazon EC2. Of course, you will need to set up an account to access the server wherein all your data will be encrypted.
