Microsoft Whiteboard app is now available for iOS devices along with a commercial preview of the Whiteboard app on the web.
The mobile and web apps were first announced back in July, and the Android app that was promised is still on the way.
These releases which build upon the Whiteboard app for Windows 10, Microsoft is moving closer to meet its vision of “a collaborative space for ideation that is accessible from any device and integrates seamlessly into the collaboration workflows already in use,” the company said.
A derivative of OneNote, it was initially launched with Surface Hub. The Whiteboard app has since then been made available on Windows 10, and now it is available on iOS devices as well.
The app allows users to collaborate on the same whiteboard from anywhere whether on Windows 10, iOS, or on the web.
On Windows or iOS device, users can easily draw, type, add a sticky note or an image, stack things up, move them around. And because Whiteboard automatically saves the boards to the cloud, users can open and view their boards, and add or erase ink using a web browser on any device.
Commercial users can ask their IT admin to enable it after the web app preview goes live over the next few days.
The Whiteboard app for iPhone and iPad is available on Apple App Store, and it requires iOS 9 or higher.
For getting started with Whiteboard on a Windows 10 device, the app can be downloaded from the Microsoft Store.
The web app URL is easy enough to remember, at whiteboard.microsoft.com.
