Class Board is a free Windows 8 Whiteboard app which lets you write any thing easily. You can either use your fingers (in touchscreen) or your mouse for handwritten notes. This whiteboard app lets you save the content as an image in PNG format. You can even share the board with anyone using Windows 8 share charm.
The app provides two writing tools: Chalk and Marker. You can also choose color for your chalk and marker from a wide range of provided colors. It also lets you change the background color of the board.
The one thing I find missing in the app is that it doesn’t let you open any image. You can’t resume your work from where you left. But the app provides a very clean and easy to use board. The board is specially designed for teaching purpose, but you can use it for other purposes as well. You can even use it as a doodling app for yourself or for kids.
