Groupboard Collaborative Whiteboard
By Group Technologies Inc
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Groupboard turns your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad into a collaborative whiteboard, allowing you to draw and chat in real time with other people anywhere on the internet, even with users using a web browser. Use it for online tutoring, collaborative design, or just for fun!
Simple to use - simply start the app and then draw on the screen by dragging your finger. Use two fingers (pinch) to scroll and zoom. Click the Connect tab to connect with other people.
Features include the ability to change colors, shapes, line width, and upload photos which you can then draw on. Log in as administrator for the ability to ban users and delete pictures.
Use two fingers (pinch gesture) to zoom in or out and scroll.
You can set up your own free Groupboard which allows you to connect to 5 other people. Once you have set up your own Groupboard, you can access it from a web browser by clicking on a link, or from an iPhone/iPod/iPad. You can also embed your Groupboard in your own web page if you wish.
- Real-time multi-user: when other users are connected to the same Groupboard everyone will see what other users are drawing in real-time (no delay)
- Pinch (2 fingers) to scroll/zoom (infinite scroll/zoom when connected to Groupboard Designer)

- Bookmarks of previously connected boards (in the Connect tab)
- Find boards using the 'who's on now' and 'top 100 boards' and search buttons in the Connect tab.

- Ability to launch the app from a url e.g. "groupboard://www.groupboard.com/1?name=bob&password=test&board_width=810&board_height=480" - replace 1 with your board id (name, password and board_width/height are optional). Note that you must already have the Groupboard app installed, and you cannot type this url directly into Safari - you can only click on it.
If you get errors connecting, you may have a firewall blocking the connection. Groupboard uses TCP/IP ports 41211 and 6144-6163. You can also now enable port 80 firewall tunnelling in the Connect tab.
What's New in Version 4.0.20
Minor user interface tweaks.
Latest version of group board app is a stinker!!!
I am a long term paid subscriber of groupboard. I generally use it in the summers to have virtual office hours with my students while I travel. For many years it worked perfectly over 3g, 4g, or LTE connections on my iPad. The new version is very slow, where the writing is very blocky even under fast wifi connections.
I am especially annoyed as the groupboard app has now begun constantly nagging me and each of my student to upgrade to the paid version with the "infinite whiteboard". This was previously part off the professional subscription I pay for $99 per year.
If groupboard needs the revenue, raise the subscription price I pay, don't "nickel and dime" my students, and most importantly fix the app, otherwise I will be looking for a new solution when my groupboard professional subscription runs out.
