The application welcomes you with a video tutorial highlighting the potential of the application. Since the application is meant for students, the video tutorial is designed accordingly. The features of the application are given in the form of a story. The application has 3 different textured pens for drawing. Each marker can have three different thickness levels and can write up to in 12 colours. Instead of Eraser, there is a duster here, just to make another mark that this is an alternative for teaching. There is also a cloth option which wipes off all the board at once.
Instead of using this application for teaching, it can also be used to doodle over pre defined photos in the gallery. You can simply add a photo from the library, Dropbox or click it directly from the camera in order to doodle over it.
The real use of the application begins when you record the drawing. It is just like a classroom experience just except the fact that teacher is not in front of you. One speaks as he writes on the board and all of this gets recorded. Once you are done with the recording, the cloud prepares your video. In a few next minutes your video is ready which can now be shared in the form of a link via Facebook, Twitter or it can be copied.
