SyncPad 2: Real-time collaboration for iPad and Samsung tablets

by David Needle

February 8 2013

A new version of SyncPad, the first collaborative whiteboard app for iOS devices, adds several new features designed to enhance its usefulness for sharing ideas, sketches and drawings in real-time.

SyncPad 2 works on the iPad as well as Samsung tablets or with any browser-based device. The new version features enhanced text editing, advanced user moderation, authentication and password protection, 256-bit security encryption, a “fully-featured web browser interface” and Android application.

The new features build on the the original SyncPad launched in January, 2011 that lets iOS users collaborate and share work locally or over the Internet, share with Dropbox and import PDF documents they can quickly mark up and share with colleagues via the Internet.

How does it work? Swimmingly

“Think of this app as the iOS equivalent of synchronized swimming. Every gesture and action on a host iPad shows up on the other iPads immediately,” said SyncPad CEO and founder Davide Di Cillo. “Action on the SyncPad whiteboard is completely fluid eliminating lag on any of the devices, whether they are all using the same or different Wi-Fi networks.”

Using a freemium model, SyncPad is available for free download to create whiteboards that can host up to 3 people (host plus 2 others) connected simultaneously. For a monthly subscription of $5.00 you can connect up to 30 devices (host plus 29 others) to your whiteboard.

The company also offers larger volume enterprise account pricing.

Current customers includes several schools: Rutgers University, Bucknell University and the San Francisco Unified School District, while SyncPad’s enterprise customers include  Riverbed, an IT performance company, and DBS Bank, a leading financial services group in Asia with over 200 branches across 15 markets.
