|ABOUT THIS MOBILE APP|
The Venn Diagram app allows users to compare and contrast information and to organize it in a visually appealing way. Users can customize their circles by choosing from several color choices, and both the circle and font sizes can be altered to better align with the users' needs for each project. The finished Venn diagram can be e-mailed or saved to the device's photo album.
Designed for use in the school environment, this app features a simple profile system so that multiple users can create and store their own Venn diagrams on the same device without confusion.
This app mirrors our web-based student interactive Venn Diagram, so users familiar with one can easily adapt to the other. In fact, users can send their editable .rwt files to an email address and then open their Venn diagram right in the online tool!
