Our "Whiteboard: Collaborative Drawing" app has over 8 million downloads on the iOS App Store, Mac App Store, and Google Play. We have over 40,000 five-star reviews on the App Store. Apple has featured our app in 35 countries.
We're building The New Whiteboard, an expansion to our app that enables mobile devices to connect and collaborate seamlessly and intuitively. We do this in real-time over Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and the Internet.
There will be two billion people come into Internet in the next two years, and 70% of them will be mobile-first, if not mobile-only. Our mission is to connect all mobile devices together to enable them to share and collaborate.
Our SDK enables us to quickly build new collaboration apps, and we'll soon offer an API for partners and third-party developers to leverage our technology.
Our apps are great for educators, students, and anyone who wants to effectively and productively use their phone or tablet.
