Introduction: How to Create Visual Diary / Journal, Visual Step-by-Step Instructions, Document Complaint, Etc. With an Android Smartphone.
Business users, as well as everybody else, are drowning in text. At home and in the office we read and write manuals, knowledge base articles and blogs, use wikis, twitter and facebook and participate in forums to exchange information. AHG Cloud Note (www.cloudnote.net ) is a popular software for Android users. It reduces amount and volume of text documents and increases clarity and quality of communication by helping users to create step-by-step visual documents directly on an Android smartphone or tablet. AHG Cloud Note can create documents that include text, images and video materials, and securely share them through the cloud (in case of business users, company may choose to use their own network.) Users can also save and edit documents right on their device, as well as present them to a live audience locally or around the world.
