reDraw Whiteboard is a drawing/Presentation app for the iPad with full support for the Apple Pencil co-developed by Jeremy Kemery and me. Available in the App Store.
reDraw Whiteboard is a full-featured note-taking / presentation app. It supports freehand drawing, text entry via a keyboard, pasting images, and importing PDFs that can be marked up using the drawing tools. reDraw was designed for use in a classroom, but is versatile enough to be used as a general purpose drawing or note taking app. A timeline with mark points allows you to step through the text and diagrams you’ve drawn before class, and you can add additional drawings / text based on discussion and questions. You can share your document with other reDraw users or export as PDF.
Here is why I wanted this app to exist:
I wanted an app I could use in class as a whiteboard with the ability to quickly work problems without worrying about creating picture perfect diagrams.
I wanted an app that I could pre-create an outline of topics and step through them during class with the ability to easily add new material during class
I wanted to import PDFs containing assignments or exams that I could write the solutions so that we can quickly go over the solutions step by step.
I wanted to create videos of pre-created “lectures” stepping through examples while recording my voice. I do this using the Mac apps ScreenFlow and Reflector. While in reDraw, I AirPlay the screen to my Mac (only the whiteboard portion of the user interface is AirPlay’ed) using Reflector as the AirPlay server on my Mac and then use ScreenFlow to record the Mac screen. You could also use the built-in QuickTime app on the Mac to record the screen or Camtasia. You can directly record in reDraw after opening a file, use the share icon near top right and choose Record Presentation and then share.
