What can you use the app for?

Being able to take quick notes while online can be a very helpful ability. However many people find that using a separate program or paper and pencil is a bit cumbersome and takes more time than necessary. Mark Up allows users to create quick notes right on a webpage as they come across it. The application works through a button that the user can drag and drop onto their browser. When they come to a site they want to notate, they can simply use the tool to draw shapes or lines as well as text right on the page. Users can also add shapes in Mark Up’s magic marker and publish their notes to share ideas with others. Mark Up makes it easy to record quick, effective notes on any website at the user’s convenience.
