What can you use the app for?

Springnote is a handy collaboration tool that gives users a place to store notes and ideas online. The user is given access to a dashboard that includes personal and group notebooks. Each notebook is another work area that the user can manage on their own or with others. Personal notebooks can be customized so that pages can be shared if the user wants to collaborate with others. When working with a group notebook, every member of the group can read, write and share information. Users can invite others to join a group notebook and send messages to an entire group when necessary. Users can organize notebooks by adding identifying titles. Watch lists let users keep up on the most recent status of each notebook.
