SyncSpace lets people express and explore visual ideas together, wherever you are. It is a zoomable drawing space that can be shared in real time over the net. It is a shared whiteboard plus a whole lot more.
∞ DEEP ZOOMING
Sketch out your ideas in a nearly limitless, zoomable drawing space. Never again be limited by the size of the canvas or the amount of space remaining in an existing sketch. You can always zoom in to add detail or zoom out to add context to a drawing. With SyncSpace's zooming, handwriting on a 10" screen actually becomes feasible.
∞ SKETCH TOGETHER
SyncSpace drawings can be updated by anyone who also has SyncSpace, anywhere on the Internet. You can invite others to collaborate on sketches by sending a link via iMessage or email. In meetings, conferences and schools, SyncSpace can discover and broadcast the existence of nearby shared drawings using Bonjour.
There are no limits to the number of people who can collaborate on a drawing.
∞ SHARING IS NICE
Your drawings can be shared via Facebook, Twitter, 37 Signals' Campfire, your photo library, or emailed as PDF files. You can also send SyncSpace drawings to any app that handles PDF files, including Dropbox, GoodReader, Evernote, iBooks and thousands more!
Sketches can be displayed on a nearby AppleTV or any HDMI or VGA-connected display. Any shared drawings are also advertised on the local network using Bonjour.
∞ SHARE ANYWHERE
Collaborate on drawings using SyncSpace or view them with zooming and real-time updates using a web browser on a PC, Mac or mobile device.
In addition, SyncSpace makes note taking and sketching easy with a plethora of fantastic features:
- Palm/wrist protection for writing notes
- Advanced line smoothing
- Shared drawings can be embedded on any web page, with real-time updates and zooming
- Rotate drawings however you like
- Zoom-extents button quickly takes you to the outer limits of the drawing (and back to your original position with a second tap)
- Export to email or other apps as a high resolution PDF file.
The SyncSpace Collaboration service requires a paid subscription. If you choose to subscribe, payment will be charged to your iTunes account, and your account will be charged for renewal 24 hours prior to the end of the current period. Auto-renewal may be turned off at any time by going to your settings in the iTunes Store after purchase. The current price for collaboration subscription is $2.99 USD per month or $24.99 per year, and may vary from country to country.
Welcome to SyncSpace 2020 - a massive update with a plethora of improvements:
First, we've updated the subscription policy so that only the creator of a drawing must have a subscription. The result is that teachers with a subscription can share documents without their pupils needing to pay anything.
Secondly, we've improved external display support via AirPlay, HDMI, or even USB adapters. Your canvas now utilizes the full resolution of an external display and displays your drawing in all its glory.
Thirdly, we've added the ability to resize or rotate parts of your drawing. Use the selection tool to select any items you like, and then use the dots at the corners of the selection rectangle to resize and rotate the selection.
Fourthly, we added an old-fashioned eraser tool that deletes anything it touches. Don't worry if you are zoomed in to a part of the drawing, as it won't delete anything larger than the current view, such as background elements.
Fifthly, we've updated the sharing feature to export PDF or image representations of drawings, and there's an option to export either the currently visible part of the canvas or the entire picture.
Finally, we've updated Pencil support. Use with the side of the Pencil's tip to highlight parts of the canvas. With 2nd generation Pencils, a double-tap will perform the action you've set in system settings: switch to the last used tool, toggle eraser, or show the color palette.
Ratings and Reviews
Has potential, and some good ideas, but needs work. Looks good (including a catchy app icon), but lacks attention to functional details and is buggy. For example, text (which is tiny and not sizable) jumps around when editing and Internet sharing is unreliable (works most of the time, but not always). Only half the icons rotate properly and requires too many taps when drawing. It's not a bad app, and it does produce nice drawings, but for $8 it isn't reliable and easy-to-use. Best suited for sharing drawings or prototyping by a team, not so much for whiteboarding in meetings or classrooms.
Great for remote tutoring
My tutor and I use this app for virtual/remote tutoring sessions. The tutor also has the app and we share a collaborate whiteboard while on a phone call with each other!
Failed to meet basic needs
the eraser didn’t work -it just drew more. i couldn’t use the app
Developer Response ,
Hi Jennperson! Were you by any chance using an Apple Pencil (or Pencil-compatible stylus)? If so, using the pencil will always draw on the screen, but if the eraser tool is selected then you can use your finger to erase and the pencil to draw. I can see how that can be confusing and we'll look into adding an option for pencil touches to behave like non-pencil touches.
Hopefully this makes SyncSpace usable for you again, and we really appreciate your feedback!
