Jot!, the Highest-Rated Paid iPad Whiteboard App, Launches New Real-Time Collaborative Whiteboard

Oakland, California (EastBayDaily) — At Tabula Rasa, we think a great whiteboard is the fastest and simplest way to make an idea real. So, we married the ease of use of a traditional whiteboard with the power of the iPad and iPhone to create a fast, robust whiteboard that you can access anywhere at anytime. The result is Jot! – the highest-rated paid whiteboard app in the Apple App Store with an average review of 4.5 out of 5 stars and over one hundred thousand downloads for Jot! and its sister app, Jot! Free.

Now, Tabula Rasa introduces Jot! Live Sharing, a way for Jot users to collaborate on a shared whiteboard in real-time over the Internet with their iPad. Using Jot! by yourself is great way to record and communicate your ideas. But something special happens when you can collaborate immediately with someone far away. Now, collaborators of all types – teachers, programmers, inventors, builders, or parents – can share ideas using Jot! in real-time.

“Real-time collaboration has always been a goal of ours. But we wanted to make sure that the core whiteboarding features of Jot! as a standalone app were robust enough first. Now that we’re on our 4th update since we launched Jot! in June 2010, we’ve added a simple way to remotely work on a whiteboard with others in real-time to share and improve ideas,” says Nick Geiger, co-founder of Tabula Rasa.

Co-founder, Geoffrey Nix adds: “We think apps should be empowering. They should be simple and fun enough for a child to use. Users should quickly explore and flesh out their ideas rather than wander through endless app menus and features. We believe that technology should simplify people’s lives, not make it more complicated.”
