Jamboard is G Suite's digital whiteboard that offers a rich collaborative experience for teams and classrooms. Watch your creativity unfold: you can create a Jam, edit it from your device, and share it with others. Everybody can collaborate on the Jam anytime, anywhere. For businesses and schools that use Jamboard hardware, you can use your iPhone or iPad to join or open a Jam on a nearby board.

Ratings and Reviews
So much potential
This can be so much more with the iPad and pencil. It is fairly unstable right now as it crashes infrequently. Connection to jamboard is there with WiFi delay. Please develop this app Google! Primary use may have been intended as a whiteboard space but there's a lot of untapped potential utility in that tablet form with pencil compatibility.
Just for reference I also have a Pixelbook and Google pen, but the apple pencil 2nd generation works better overall. (Magnetic charging, thin profile, double tap)
This app is a game changer!
It works amazingly well for what I need. As a designer I want to iterate on ideas and organize those ideas quickly and this allows me to do that. Without getting bogged down in things having to “look nice”. Sure there are some improvements that can be made. I love the multiple erase options, I can clear a whole board, section or just erase a single line/sketch. You wouldn’t think something like that would be a highlight but it really is.
My only suggestions at this point would be to maybe add a quick toggle option to see the board only without all the tools. Even less distraction when jotting down ideas. And some sort of angle/rotation lock feature for the text, sometimes when I re-size a text it starts to rotate and I can’t quite get it straight again.
Overall, love the app and really hope Google keeps it around for awhile.
Great for tutoring and updates in real time!!!
If you are trying to do work in real time, like tutor someone who lives far away from you in math for example, use this app. It updates in real time, has a web application, and is free. The way I used it: I was collaborating on a math problem and I was writing on my iPad, while the other person was 400 miles away on their laptop following along using the web app. It worked out great!!! Best part? It’s free!!!
