Basically, this app snaps a picture of a group of post-it notes. Not so exciting, but the coolness comes when you can move the notes around. You can create groups, sequences, storyboards, flowcharts, and much more. Creations can be saved as an image or a file that can be opened on another device using the app. Possibilities are endless. Great way to capture learning and thinking!
