This page explains how to install myViewBoard Whiteboard for Android.

Using a ViewSonic ViewBoard or myViewBoard Box?

If you're using a ViewSonic ViewBoard IFP or a myViewBoard Box you may already have Whiteboard for Android installed.

  1. Turn the device on and swipe up from the bottom of the screen. Select Embd Player to switch to Android OS (if not already selected).

  2. Press the home button (physical button below the screen).
  3. Search the home screen and app tray for New whiteboard logo.svg Whiteboard for Android. ViewSonic ViewBoards come preinstalled with Whiteboard for Android.
