WHAT EDUCATORS ARE SAYING
“Showbie is my number one can't live without app! It makes the iPad workflow process a breeze! I especially love how it works seamlessly with so many other apps.”
— Kristen Paino, Lead Technology Integrator at Avenues: The World School
“I don't need to convince my colleagues that they need to use this app — it sells itself. I like that it gives me the flexibility in how I choose to grade my student's work, especially with the voice notes feature. There is no single third party app that I would rather champion.”
— Suzanne Lustenhouwer, Teacher and iPad Coordinator, Apple Distinguished Educator
“I love that Showbie is so versatile that the youngest of students can use it independently, yet it is appropriate for older grades as well. The ease of use makes it a great workflow solution for classes with iPads.”
— Kristi Meeuwse, Kindergarten Teacher, Apple Distinguished Educator

What’s New in 6.4
We’ve updated iOS 14+ for iPads with a fresh, new sidebar! Now you can navigate to classes easily through the sidebar even while you’re already in an assignment. Speed is also of the essence in other areas so QR sign in codes can now be generated in bulk - especially useful for distance learning so students can login straight away!
Almost all video formats are now supported as well. Videos in Showbie should be more consistent no matter the video format you’re uploading or viewing.
And finally, Turkish is now a supported language so any aspiring linguists can fulfill their dreams in Showbie.
What’s Fixed in 6.4.2
- tapping notifications wouldn't actually take you to the notification destination. This has been fixed. Sorry about that!
- creating screen recordings and editing videos will no longer fill up your hard drive

Oh My Goodness!!!
This has been my first year having iPads in my class room and one of our training classes exposed us to Showbie. I was slow to adopt it but in the last two weeks I am finding numerous ways to integrate Showbie into my classroom. (A note of interest before I continue: Showbie is available as an iPad app and can also be accessed by laptop or desktop computer for students who don't have an iPad at home).
Showbie is very flexible app. Last week I used Showbie to upload an essay for my students to read and create a written response. Later in the week, they used Showbie to answer questions from selected textbook and internet readings. This week they have been using showbie to take lecture notes, write comments on videos and accomplish their bellwork. I have become so excited about Showbie that my fellow teachers are probably tired of hearing me talk about it.
I strongly recommed this app for any teacher wanting to digitize their class. Unlike many other applications available, Showbie is very easy for students and teachers to learn and use. It's flexibilty is such that several teachers in our district have gone completely paperless, using Showbie for almost all of their assignments.
Needs to get the glish es fix’s
I can’t use it it always keeps taking me out as soon as I get in
Great app for the classroom!
If your goal is to use less paper and make fewer copies for your classroom, Showbie is an app that will help you achieve your goal. The teacher can upload assignments to Showbie and students can complete the work on their iPads. Teachers can see how many students have completed the assignments and which assignments have been graded. Students can type or use a stylus to write on the assignment, and the teacher can leave comments on the graded work.
I especially like that I can add an assignment or test and archive it until I am ready for the students to view it. It is also great to have all the assignments I need to grade organized on my iPad instead of in stacks of paper-clipped pages. Students love using the app and not having so much paper to deal with, too.
The folks at Showbie welcome suggestions on features teachers would like to see added. I have a 1:1 classroom, and Showbie works great for us. I would recommend it.
