Used by over 3 million teachers and students worldwide, Showbie is the fastest, easiest, and most effective app for assignments and feedback in your iPad classroom.

Find out how easy it is to assign, collect and review student work from thousands of compatible iPad apps, or have your students complete assignments with Showbie’s built in tools. Provide rich feedback using digital ink, text and voice annotations right on images and PDFs, and then add your students’ best work to personalized digital portfolios that can be securely shared with parents.

“Showbie is my number one can't live without app! It makes the iPad workflow process a breeze! I especially love how it works seamlessly with so many other apps.”
— Kristen Paino, Lead Technology Integrator at Avenues: The World School

“I don't need to convince my colleagues that they need to use this app — it sells itself. I like that it gives me the flexibility in how I choose to grade my student's work, especially with the voice notes feature. There is no single third party app that I would rather champion.”
— Suzanne Lustenhouwer, Teacher and iPad Coordinator, Apple Distinguished Educator

“I love that Showbie is so versatile that the youngest of students can use it independently, yet it is appropriate for older grades as well. The ease of use makes it a great workflow solution for classes with iPads.”
— Kristi Meeuwse, Kindergarten Teacher, Apple Distinguished Educator

What's New

Version 3.8.4

New in 3.8.2:
- Bug fixes and performance enhancements

New in 3.8.1:
- You can now rename items as you add them to Showbie from another app using the Share Extension.
- Lots of bug fixes and small improvements.
- The next major update to Showbie will only support devices running iOS 10 or later. If you're still using iOS 9, you can continue to use Showbie 3.8.x indefinitely. Please update if you can, so you can try the great new features that are coming later this summer!

New in 3.8:
- We've completely redesigned the Showbie voice note recorder! The new interface takes up much less room on screen, so you can see more of your assignment or document while recording a note. You can also pause and resume recording, so you don't have to nail your note in one take. Finally, try tapping on your profile pic while recording a new pinned note, to collapse the voice recorder into mini-mode.

New in 3.7:
- Highlighter: Now you and your students can use Showbie's highlighter tool to complete assignments and provide feedback in an eye-catching new way.
- Universal Links: links to groups, classes, assignments and folders now open directly in the Showbie app. For example, if you receive an email on your iPad notifying you that a student commented on their assignment, you can tap the link in the email and it will open directly in the app.

New in 3.6:
- As a teacher, you can now reorder items you've added to the shared folder of your assignment, making it easier to provide ordered instructions and resources to your students.
- There are now more colors to choose from when using the pen and text annotation tools!

Fix it now.

There’s a bug where when you turn off annotation layers for one or both persons, and switch the page and come back, the annotations are there. I want this bug fixed, because it’s ruining my students papers.
