9. Air Sketch: Interactive Whiteboard and Wireless Presentations
Turn your iPad into a wireless whiteboard! Annotate PDF slides and images live in 3 easy steps:
STEP 1: Launch Air Sketch.
STEP 2: Enter the indicated URL in the web browser.
STEP 3: Everything your present and write is projected to the browser, in real-time.
Project PDF documents (such as exported PowerPoint or Keynote decks) and photos to a computer on the same local network, then annotate them in real time, all from your iPad.
NO SUBSCRIPTIONS, PLUG-INS, OR DONGLES NEEDED
Just fire up Air Sketch on the iPad and open the specified URL from any HTML-5 compatible browser on the local network. Your images and drawings show up natively in the browser. There’s no additional client software to install, or services to subscribe to.
FREE YOURSELF FROM THE PODIUM
Connect your laptop to a projector to present and draw from your iPad as you walk around the room. Pass your iPad around to allow others to contribute.
Incorporate the iPad into your desktop-based workflow: Record videos of your live Air Sketch drawings, or share them live with remote colleagues via any online meeting or desktop sharing software running on the computer (such as iChat or WebEx).
Air Sketch is great for presentations in the boardroom, classroom, or on the go.
