Your friends just have to click on the URL and soon they’ll get connected to you on the collaborative drawing board. A limitation of this website is that you are not notified whenever any one joins your drawing board. So, you don’t come to know how many people are actually connected to your drawing session.
One you are done with your drawing, you can click on save button. It soon generates a permanent URL to your image that you can share via email, Facebook or Twitter.
My Verdict About Drawonthe:
Drawonthe is an interesting online collaborative drawing website to draw together online. The fact that it neither displays the name or the number of people that have added to your drawing board is a big limitation. So you can’t really make out who all are drawing or viewing your collaborative whiteboard.
It does not provide any Undo/Redo options, which is another big limitation. If these issues doesn’t bother you, then you can surely give a try and share your experience in the comments below.
It also does not have any download option to save the image that you created.
