    The features are just aazing. They keep surprising you. I don't see a "COLOR" feature that is given in the "ColorNotes" app, but they have an amazing feature of tags. These are way more useful. They have some cool features like "Colaborate" and "Publish" and also "Publically accessible link" and more dope stuff like that
