This project has some nice features but is not ready to be used. Non-standard verbiage makes it less intuitive. "line dance" is used instead of "bookmark"; this is meant to be cute (no thanks). The exit dialog has "toss out" instead of "discard"; this requires the user to pause and re-think what needs to be done. Font colors are limited to 8 text words! A minimum of 48-64 colors are needed for the real world. Yet one more deal breaker. Rating = 2-1/2 stars.
