WHAT EDUCATORS ARE SAYING
“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 in Version 3.2
New in Showbie 3.2
Set Assignments to “View-Only”
Set assignments to be “view-only” so that students can review work, feedback and grades, without allowing them to revise their work.
Create Assignment Schedules
Pre-schedule assignments to automatically become locked, view-only, or editable at a future date and time. Great for in-class quizzes, projects with strict deadlines, or lining up future assignments in advance!
Fine-Tune Your Notifications
We’ve added the ability to separately enable or disable each individual notification that Showbie sends, including separate control over push and email notifications. So you can now choose how Showbie communicates with you, based on your preference.
Rename Your Voice Notes
You can now give a descriptive title to voice notes after adding them to an assignment folder, group, or class discussion.
Improved GarageBand Compatibility
Showbie has increased integration with GarageBand by allowing users to import and export GarageBand audio files and project files.
New in Showbie 3.1
Every Showbie class now includes a class discussion, where students can ask questions, chat about projects, and share their work. Teachers can easily moderate the discussion by pausing/unpausing student posts with a single tap.
In groups and class discussions, new posts and updates will automatically flow into the app in realtime, allowing for instant feedback and fluid conversations.
In-App Push Notifications
Showbie push notifications are now surfaced in the app while you’re using it, so you can easily stay on top of conversations and updates happening in multiple classes or groups at once.
Streamlined Commenting Interface
You can now type a comment directly into a group or folder with a faster and more streamlined interface.
