Xpad is a sticky note application for jotting down things to remember.
It’s written using GTK+ 3.0 that strives to be simple, fault-tolerant, and customizable. Xpad consists of independent pad windows; each is basically a text box in which notes can be written. Despite being called Xpad, all that is needed to run or compile it is the GTK+ 3.0 libraries.
Xpad needs a GTK 3 icon theme. A commonly used theme is the gnome-icon-theme, but any will suffice.
This is free and open source software.
