What can you use the app for?

CanvasDropr is an application for creating and sharing images. Users can make canvases and collages. Videos, photos and other related content can also be shared. It is similar to using GoogleDocs but for a different type of content and file. By creating a canvas for users to use as a base for their creations, content can be added and uploaded to the canvas. Others can collaborate and place items on the canvas too. This forms an collaborative platform that connects various people together and can also enhance creativity. In addition, collaborations and uploading of data can occur at the same time. Hence, real-time collaboration is also another benefit of using CanvasDropr.
