Inko is a collaborative whiteboard that lets you draw together using multiple iPad or iPhone, and even interact on Apple TV. Ideal for team coworkers in a brainstorming session, for a creative classroom project, or for an interactive meeting between a graphic designer and their client.
Create a group and just start drawing together! No need for complex network setup, or even any network at all, thanks to nearby connectivity. Be it in a bar, or on the beach. Oh, and your drawing now even goes to the big screen too thanks to the free companion app for Apple TV! It instantly connects and interacts with all devices in the room. A great alternative to those bulky & expensive interactive boards.
Even though Inko is both simple and intuitive, it's also backed with advanced features like vibrant colors and beautiful pixel-free drawing display that stays sharp when zooming in. It also offers precise Apple Pencil support for an amazing drawing experience, lag-free and undo-capable real-time interactions, as well as hi-res PDF exports to share with your group when you’re done.

Ratings and Reviews
So me and my friend wanted to use this to doodle some random stuff. I was drawing for less then a minute when a notification popped up saying “Trial Period is over.” At first I ignored it and restarted on my drawing. It came up again and it had deleted the group of me and my friend that I had made. I looked into it, and we have to pay to collaborate when thats the whole point of this app? Maybe you should remove the word “collaborative” from the name of the app. I deleted it straight after that. The one star on this review is my disappointment. Good day/night to you, developers.

Hi. With version 1.0.2, we have taken into account users’ feedback by increasing the trial duration to 5 minutes, which will enable you to fully test Inko’s collaboration feature with several devices. The collaboration feature trial is there to test that the connection works, but it’s meant to be purchased if you want to use it. The free app will let you use all drawing operations and saving in an unlimited fashion as single user. /TC
Good but not perfect
I use this to for homework/study practice using my Apple Pencil, but there is an issue of not being able to lay my hand on the screen and it picking up my hand once every couple times opposed to the pencil. Other than that, perfect.

Hi. We are working on an improved palm rejection technique for version 1.0.2 when using Apple Pencil, which goes beyond the native iOS support that Inko currently has. Please stay tuned, should be available shortly! /RS
Extremely short time for groups to work for free before asking for money and ending the session. Seemingly no smoothing tools, you can only back up two times, and you can only interact with others who have the app that are nearby. To avoid the trouble, why not just draw in person ?

Hi. As of version 1.0.2, we made the trial period longer (it is now 5 min). We found out that drawing simultaneously together is a great way to collaborate, instead of asking for the pen / tablet. /TC
