What is the history and popularity of the app?

MySchoolNotebook was founded in March of 2010. The application was designed to provide students with a convenient way to store and share their notes. A handful of features have made MySchoolNotebook an appealing choice for many students. The application has been mentioned on numerous websites, primarily education-related blogs and sites that boast the application’s user friendly design. Some mention that the Facebook only access is limiting for anyone who doesn’t use or wish to share their Facebook profile.

What are the differences to other apps?

MySchoolNotes isn’t breaking any barriers with its features list, but it does offer an attractive collection of tools to students. The ability to use the application when not connected to the web is one of the shining gems in MySchoolNotebook’s offerings. The user can store notes during class, regardless of whether an internet connection is available. Other features included may be simple, but they are very appealing to anyone who is taking a class.
