At first sight, GloboNote looks like yet another sticky notes tool. But this unassuming application has a few clever tricks up its sleeve. For starters, GloboNotes offers a handful of text formatting options, including bold, italics, and underlined. The utility allows you to organize notes into groups, and you can display and hide all notes belonging to a specific group in one go. GloboNotes also sports the ability to perform simple calculations directly in notes: type a calculation (e.g., 3+2=) and press F2 to view the result.

In addition to that, the utility allows you to search across all existing notes as well as run find/replace actions on the currently active note. You can attach images and files to notes and paste graphics from the clipboard into notes. You can turn a note into an alarm which you can enable and configure by right-clicking on the note and choosing Preferences | Alarm. GloboNotes also lets you create note templates and load them using custom hotkeys. Deleted a note by mistake? No problem: GloboNote is able to restore deleted notes. While the application lacks synchronization functionality, it does allow you to print notes and export them as plain text files.
