Smart Technologies Debuts Collaboration App for iPad
Smart Technologies has released a new app that will bring its collaborative learning software, Smart Notebook, to the iPad, allowing users to edit files and share their work on the company's interactive whiteboards.
Many Smart Board features are also available through the app, including the ability to open and edit Smart Notebook files from e-mail or file-sharing sites. Students can also use the iPad camera roll to drop images directly into files.
Additional application features include:
- Page sorter view so users can view, add, or delete Smart Notebook software pages;
- Zoom and pan to adjust page views;
- Image insert;
- Pen tools with four different colors; and
- Object control that lets users delete, rotate, move, and scale objects.
Users can share their iPad screens on Smart Boards
using AirPlay and an Apple TV, an HDMI, or via a VGA cable with
the proper connectors.
The app retails at $6.99 and is available through the iTunes store.
