You can choose what color you want your paper to be. You are able to change the background image to something that is preloaded or create your own. You can organize your notes however you want it to look.

Shooting them with the gun will keep the others at bay temporarily. This app also allows you to rfght zombies and survive in the real venues that are around you, various weapons and items to help you surviving, different events and encounters in different venues, ccustomizable skills, perks and character appearances. Even though this appears to be a good game, but there really isn’t a whole lot to do in this app’s link.
