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

Really good, but with simple improvements could be so much better.


Really easy for students to access work using Showbie. Marking and annotation features are great. Lack of folder options or even to reorder the assignments is really frustrating though. Such a simple feature, surely this can’t be hard to add? They have now added the ability to reorder the posts in the shared folder within an assignment. Why not add the ability to reorder assignments themselves? Also, an option to flick through all of an individual’s assignments without having to go in and out of each one would be handy.

School life easier


As a student that goes to a school where all the pupils have an iPad, I can say we find Showbie very useful. We use it in every lesson. If we do homework or class work on our iPads, we upload it to showbie and our teachers can easily check how well we are doing from anywhere. Also, teachers can put worksheets or information on here which reduces the amount of paper needed to be printed. It is very useful and I definitely recommend this app.

Teacher timesaver


I have used Showbie for a year now and it has made my teaching and learning so much better. It makes communications with the students easy and marking even easier. The features allow direct marking on the work and allows for various means of feedback. It allows me to quickly provide resources and be a centre point for my lessons. I could not teach now without it. Well done Showbie!!
