There is one interesting and valuable kind of software: Programs, which grow from some small «real-world goodie» imitation, but then, enriched with all the abilities todays computer provides, these programs suddenly become multi-purpose, useful and competitive software suits. They are the example of how a «small real-world idea» can be re-born as «serious business application».
TurboNote+ is a good example. It has grown from the real-world idea of a sticky note, which is good only for small, momentary notes that you can forget tomorrow. These characteristics are common for many «sticky notes» desktop applications, but NOT for TurboNote+! The latter addresses the job of the complex full-featured personal information management, where the «stickiness» of information is only a handy form of it organization and not the way of disregarding.
Notes created with TurboNote+ can handle any form of everyday content plain text or rich text, lists with checkmarks, images, links to local and Internet information, and so on. They can also have a single or recurring alarm (doing eternal sticky task reminding much more effective). TurboNote+ includes extended network capabilities, beginning with the simple «send this note over network» and up to the full-strength chat with your colleagues.
TurboNote+ gets its best features from two worlds extended information management from PIMs and easy quick operation from the good old stickies!
