Used by over 3 million teachers and students worldwide, Showbie is the fastest, easiest, and most effective app for assignments and feedback in your iPad classroom.

Find out how easy it is to assign, collect and review student work from thousands of compatible iPad apps, or have your students complete assignments with Showbie’s built in tools. Provide rich feedback using digital ink, text and voice annotations right on images and PDFs, and then add your students’ best work to personalized digital portfolios that can be securely shared with parents.

“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

This app is amazing, our school uses this for all subjects. It’s incredibly useful. I only have 1 problem about it, it doesn’t have a dark mode. If they added a dark mode I feel that many people would like it.

It is effective but...

I’m being honest. It’s good, but the thing is. I can’t get to my account. I was doing my assignment and left so I can do something else, but as I went on the app. For a second, the screen was normal, but then it suddenly turned into the sign in thingy area. I tried signing in, but it kept saying that they can’t find any records of my account. Then notifications came up from showbie like mRS KiM gAve yOU an ASSIgnment, and when I pressed it, it still won’t work. It is good to use, but just. Annoying.

Not recommended

This app is really bad, for a start, its SOOO glitchy, like this one time, my class had a big assessment, and we had just finished, when is had one of those HUGE glitches that deleted all of the work! 2nd of all, it has a poor setup. Like when i turned the screen around, all of the buttons got mixed up!
