The home screen is designed to provide a simple, intuitive, and clutter-free interface to help you easily access the various features of NineBx.
Key elements of the home screen
The nine boxes: Each of the nine boxes in the middle of the home screen leads you to a pre-defined folder structure for that category, allowing you to thoughtfully organize your records, documents, account information, passwords, pictures, notes, and lists related to that category. (See Adding a record, Creating a list)
Message board: The icon on the top-right of the home screen takes you to the message board which provides you a private and secure communication channel with your family. A red dot over the icon indicates that you have unread messages. (See Viewing and broadcasting messages)
