Literal is a textual information browser for augmenting your reading experience; capture sources, annotations, and knowledge.

CAPTURE ANNOTATIONS
Share URLs, text, and images to Literal to annotate and highlight.

COLLECT INFORMATION
Over time, Literal becomes a personal knowledge base containing information and knowledge along with their source.

VIEW ANNOTATIONS IN CONTEXT
Quickly view the annotation's source context by tapping it.

ORGANIZE BY TAG AND SOURCE
Go beyond folders with a tag-based organization system, or view annotations by their shared source.

OPEN SOURCE, OPEN STANDARDS
Literal is open source (https://github.com/literal-io/literal) and implements the W3C Web Annotation standard (https://www.w3.org/TR/annotation-model/) to ensure that your data is portable. The application currently interfaces with proprietary network services hosted on Amazon Web Services, though local-only functionality may be supported in the future (https://github.com/literal-io/literal/issues/123).
