Syncspace – A shared whiteboard app for iOS and Android

SyncSpace is an app that provides a zoomable drawing space that can be shared in real time over the net, so in effect it acts as a shared whiteboard. The document can be shared with others who will be able to see your drawing and also make changes using SyncSpace.

SyncSpace drawings can be updated by anyone with an iPad or Android device, anywhere on the Internet. You can invite others to collaborate on sketches by sending a link via iMessage or email. Some of these sharing options might be a problem in schools, such as Facebook and iMessage but you can also send SyncSpace drawings to any app that handles PDF files, including Dropbox, GoodReader, Evernote, iBooks and more! There are no limits to the number of people who can collaborate on a drawing.


Even if you don’t share it, it makes for a handy note taking application. The fact you can scroll around the space and zoom in/out means you can take notes in a different way to most. You can write as large as you need to to make it legible, then zoom out to see all your other notes. You can pan about to have a workspace as large as you want. Would be good for mind maps or brainstorm sessions.

Couple this app with Apple TV over Airplay and you can use it as a simple whiteboard tool with a class.

Syncspace is available for iPads as well as Android tablets. The basic version is free, so definitely worth checking out. For more information, visit :
