New whiteboard logo.svg Whiteboard für Android ist ein digitales Whiteboard, das speziell für die Verwendung auf Android-Geräten entwickelt wurde. Alle ViewSonic Interative Flat Panel (IFP)-Displays laufen mit einer modifizierten Version von Android OS (obwohl sie zusätzlich auch einen Slot-in in Windows PC haben können) und werden mit Whiteboard vorinstalliert geliefert.

Whiteboard für Android funktioniert ähnlich wie die Windows-Version mit ein paar kleinen Unterschieden. Beide funktionieren am besten auf Touchscreen-Geräten.

Whiteboard working area

Whiteboard contains an infinite canvas and the ability to add more pages. There is the main toolbar, by default located at the bottom of the screen (it can be snapped to either the sides or bottom), and the floating toolbar, which can be freely dragged around.

For basic digital whiteboarding, there is the pen, shapes, eraser, and text tools. For more advanced interactive media, use I-main-tool-bar-magic-box.svg Magic Box. From here you can import local or cloud files, add sticky notes, mathematical tools, search approved web images, use the device camera, view files shared to the whiteboard via Throw, and host Pop Quizzes.
