When planning a project or event it always helps to be on the same page. Samepage is a web app that helps you do just that! It allows you to collaborate and share with family, friends, team mates and colleagues. It puts everyone on the “Same page” and saves time.
I am all for productivity apps that save time as every minute saved gives us more time to enjoy life and to take care of ourselves and our loved ones.
In my non-blogging life, I coordinate a local event with a team of volunteers. I felt excited when contacted by Samepage as it sounded perfect for this type of group. Before entrusting my project to Samepage, I decided to look it over to get a sense of how it works. I discovered that Samepage is highly versatile so people can use it for many of their personal, school, community or professional projects.
A Dozen Ways You Can Use Samepage:
- Plan a party or picnic
- Plan a wedding

The possibilities are endless. You can embed, include or link to videos, maps, images, tables, task lists, calendars, spreadsheets, links and more.

My Experience Trying Samepage:
I opened and account and played around with the features. I found Samepage fairly intuitive to use.
It seems the most detailed work needs to be done on a desktop or laptop computer (my laptop worked great). Samepage does have mobile IOS and android apps to use on the go.
I could immediately think of several situations where I wish I had Samepage. And have numerous ideas on how to use it for my projects and for my blog.
Samepage is a fantastic resource to help curate and organize our projects. I have not used it to collaborate yet, but it seems like it would work very well. I expect I will use it a lot this Summer.
I had one minor disappointment, I embedded a Pinterest board and it didn’t show as a pin board on the page. I don’t think that is Samepage’s fault, but I hope they better integrate in the future as that would be highly valuable for some of my planned collaborations. It does link to the board so it wasn’t a deal breaker.
Overall, I am highly impressed with Samepage. I think it is one of those apps that really has the potential to save time so we have more time for fitness and for enjoyment.
