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.
+ Fast and fluid sketching on the iPad using your finger or 3rd party stylus.
+ Real-time sketching to your browser: Strokes show up as you draw, network speeds permitting.
+ Open PDF documents from Mail or other Apps in Air Sketch to wirelessly annotate and project them (note: The iOS "open in..." menu is scrollable). Email the full annotated versions afterwards.
+ Set the background image from any picture in your photo library.
+ 5 drawing tools: Pencil, pen, marker, brush, and highligher.
+ A fully customizable color palette (tap on the selected color to edit it).
+ Fluidly zoom and pan using 2 fingers to edit your sketches in minute detail.
+ Instantly save and restore snapshots of your sketches using the camera tool.
+ Email your sketches and annotated slides as PDF or images.
+ Multi-level undo and redo.
WORKS ON STANDARD WEB BROWSERS
Air Sketch supports any HTML5-capable browser, including the newest versions of Safari, Firefox, Chrome, and even another iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch!
Note: Air Sketch is designed to work optimally with landscape documents and with a single computer connected to the same local network as your iPad.
No public WiFi? No problem. You can even use Air Sketch peer-to-peer with a computer via an ad-hoc network when a WiFi hotspot is unavailable (see our blog for the quick how-to).

Not much use in the real world - and they want to charge again
I tried the free one. Thought it was cool so I bought the paid one. Still kind of cool, until I really needed to use it for work.
There's no apparent way to easily get my PDF into it. Tried email - no link. Tried iBooks - no link. Best I can tell, the only way to import a PDF is to plug in the USB cable and copy it from iTunes. Can't be bothered. Every other app I have can pass files to and from other apps.
Not much use in the real world I'm afraid. It was a good idea, but if I have to jump through hoops to actually open a file, then it's not of value.
Now, I look in the App Store again, and I see a "Pro" version. It claims to be able top open PDFs from mail or other apps. They want to charge me more for a third tier? How "Miscrosoft" of them. Too much I'm afraid. You won't milk me for any more.
I would not recommend giving this developer your money. An app that wants me to upgrade to another paid level after I already upgraded from the free version - just to get basic functionality that other apps have. This reeks of scam.
I suspect if I did upgrade to the third tier, there would be some in-app purchase to get someother basic functionality.
Not all its cracked up to be
Tried the free version. Very cool! Bought the full version. Does not work. Using Google Chrome; images and PDFs do not display. A line is drawn from center of screen to upper left corner. Tried to use Erase. Does not work. Tried to use some of the other features. Zingers drawn from upper left to center of screen. Colors work.
Went to support site to ask questions. Received Server Error in '/home' Application no matter what browser I tried.
Recommend they do some more product testing before releasing to the wild. Is it possible to return this app?
Awesome for Presentations and Communication
Fire up Safari, Firefox, Chrome, etc and it works brilliantly. Great for annotations, highlighting, diagram labeling, etc. Use with a stylus to make it even better.
Use this often for teaching.
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
