Groupboard

Review Author: Tom_Nichols@URMC.Rochester.edu
Platform: iOS
App or Mobile Website: App (link to App Store)
Does it require WiFi to work? No
Category: Productivity
Price: Free
Special Instructions: Can be used offline. WiFi is necessary for shared boards and chat functions.
Tasks or Searches Tested: Drew on unconnected board, drew on connected board, changed options for line/font size, used tool and color for changing stylus, added name, used shake-to-clear, used clear from options to clear board, used pinch zoom, used chatting, created new shared board, saved board and loaded saved image into board
Design: Fairly minimal interface, maximizes space for the board itself, font/line size, drawing tool, and color are in a separate section of the app that may require hopping back and forth a lot between the whiteboard and options
Functionality: App is stable, able to share whiteboard space for collaborative discussion, tools for freeform, text, lines, (filled) circles and rectangles, and a fill bucket, eleven colors available, can save current image of board to photos or online storage such as Dropbox, can retrieve stored images into the board.
Content: Whatever is created by the users
Other Comments: I would have liked a ribbon that could be shown alongside the whiteboard for stylus settings that could be toggled on/off as opposed to needing to switch between different sections of the app. I like that when someone is drawing that their name appears while doing so near their virtual stylus point. It is possible to overwrite and obscure or erase others' markings (erase is indiscriminate). Pinch zoom goes from 100% to 200%.
