Excellent, helpful, efficient, and (almost satisfying). These are words that really describe "bContext". It's been a very helpful tool for me, and I enjoy using it all the time. The only thing that I believe it is missing is the option of letting its users export their project to Google Drive. Many students will find good use in this (if it is added) and I hope that "bNapkin" will take this into their concerns. Overall though, "bContext" has been very helpful and I hope many future users use it, too!
This app is the best white board app I have found for free. After trying about five others, I found this one and my mind is totally blown about what it can do.
Srry from last review, but I don't like the this "teach students lessons" title.
