What can you use the app for?

A.nnotate is a web service that offers an online collaboration place for users to edit, work on and annotate on a document. Users can annotate onto a .pdf, image or other document. A.nnotate can also act as an online storage place for one's notes and documents. Documents and web snapshots are stored securely in one's private space. Tags and descriptions can also be added to docs in order for them to be best organized. The items can be notated and tagged so that precise parts are referenced and commented upon. The tags are highlighted and easily noticed on top of the document. Users can send out invitations for others to view a document and to share their thoughts on the work thus far. There is also a homepage that lists all of the latest edits to a document and it notes who made what changes as well. The person who submitted the invites can also receive alerts when their respondents view and edit documents as well.
