I haven't used this yet but it does seem to tick all the right boxes. Although I'm not thrilled about paying the amount is small and the app looks good.

Handig app om dingen die je op het web tegenkomt van aantekeningen te voorzien en te bewaren.

wanderingsalsero's curator insight, October 20, 2013 4:54 PM

I haven't read this article but I'm seriously interested in the question implied in the title.....i.e. how to 'mark up' information and get them on the web.  In many cases, I think that's adequate for most people's purpose.

 

I have yet to find a tool that I found really comfortable for doing that.  Maybe this is it.

Great blog site with enough info to guide your thinking on some of the many apps available for annotation. Especially like that it considers other OS and the variety of mobile devices as well as the sync functionality that is critical as we work over multiple places and spaces!
