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

• Lock assignments to control student access to documents and feedback

We’ve redesigned the Quick Marking menu to make reviewing student work faster and easier than ever. Now you can:
• Navigate to any student’s assignment submission without leaving the document previewer
• If your student added multiple documents to their assignment, navigate between them without leaving the document previewer
• Swipe to navigate from one student’s submission to the next
You can now remove the class code/group code from a class or a group. This way, you can be confident that nobody will accidentally access your class or group after all of your students have joined.
Fixed in 4.5.3:
File, voice note, and pinned voice notes no longer stall when uploading on iOS 10.
Ratings and Reviews
use this in my class it’s very great 11/10
Needs a mark book and better scheduling options.
A good app getting better, but still a way to go. Spark jar has the edge, in some areas.
I am nothing without Showbie
I am a maths teacher who knows nothing about maths. The only way I am teaching now is because of Showbie. I owe my life to Showbie.
