Consider a situation: you are researching for your university project and found useful information that can aid you in your writing. But as you have multiple sources, copying relevant points from different sources can be a bit of a hassle as you have to first copy the information to Word and then save it. This might work for many people but that is not the best solution as you may end up with quite a few documents. The problem arises when you have to send those notes to your friend or colleague working with you. You can get rid of this problem, thanks to a nifty app known as Annotary.
