WHITEBOARDS FOR VIRTUAL MEETINGS $14.99 | getpixelboardapp.com Virtual meetings can be useful, but they often lack a crucial component: a virtual whiteboard where you can sketch ideas. That’s something that Black Pixel encountered, and so created a virtual whiteboard app. The app enables you to share three boards with up to nine people. The free trial is fully featured for two weeks; you can permanently unlock Pro for $14.99 to keep using multiple boards, collaboration features and gesture support. The interface is very simple and straightforward, so nobody’s wasting time trying to make it work when you’re supposed to be working together. It works just like a real whiteboard does, with the rather brilliant addition of disappearing ink that remains on the board for only a short time. The gesture tools make it easy to highlight or point to elements of the current board, and you can save screenshots to refer to them later. It’s not perfect, though. You can save images but not import them, and if you don’t have a stylus, your scribbles (like ours) will look rather childish — even on an iPad Pro. Also, the app requires iOS 11, so older iPads aren’t invited to the party. However, if you have dainty fingers and up-to-date iPads to work with, then it’s a useful and well-priced tool for your collaborative work.
