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

What’s New

Version 5.2.2

Happy holidays! Here’s what you’ll find under the figurative tree in our December update:
- You and your students can now customize your notification settings on a per-class basis. We know you can’t admit it, but we’re going to go out on a limb and assume that some classes are just more important than others. It’s ok.
- Assignments can now be copied directly into folders. You want to put an assignment in a folder, and we at Showbie support you in this endeavour.
- Class folders are now copyable. Take that perfect bundle of assignments and distribute it to each of your classes with style and grace.
- For those of you lucky enough to own an Apple Pencil, we’ve added a new feature called Showbie Magical Pencil Sense (TM). When Apple Pencil is present, you can use your finger to navigate around the page/document, without drawing on the page accidentally.

Plus a few fixes for issues that you reported (thanks!):
- Improved reliability when uploading a large number of images at once.
- Fixed a layout issue that affected portrait-orientation Book Creator books.
- Fixed a crash that would sometimes happen when moving annotations on a multi-page document.

Stay warm, we’ll see you in 2020!

Fixed in 5.2.1:
- teachers no longer need to join a class to access All Assignments in their class list.
- when adding a pinned voice note or comment, page navigation via the bottom thumbnail bar has been disabled.

Changed in 5.2.2:
- updated our support widget so we can help you even more efficiently
