hola papi churro ,


I use my phone for Jamboard but it always says “Something went wrong. Please try again.” I would like you to fix this issue. Computer users have no problem but iphone users like me have issues joining the Jamboard.

I miss out in class participation because the Jamboard link provided by my teacher doesn’t allow me to join. “Something went wrong. Please try again.”

My teacher is someone who doesn’t worry the technical issues of the students, so the students have to fix it themselves and if we cannot fix it, it affects our grade.

I tried putting the link in safari, but it didn’t work either. I tried putting the link in and then going to desktop mode, but it still did not work.

I don’t know what the issue is but I’ve missed a lot of class participation points for not answering the questions on the Jamboard due to the issue of not being able to join the Jamboard despite almost everyone else in my class being able to join.

Please fix this issue immediately.

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.

Hard to work with and too much missing

So I’ve had some problems with this app. This is possibly one of the hardest app for me to work with. I downloaded this for a school project, which was a simple one, just to make arrays to show multiplication equations. Something you should add is a shape tool, or a chart tool, because I know many people who’ve had to use this for that purpose. Also there is no line tool, so it was hard to draw straight lines. There was also many glitches when drawing and the undo/redo button. When I would draw or use the undo and redo button, most of the time it would undo a line I was happy with, or add a random line in the middle of the board. At first I thought my arm was on the screen, but then when I tried while having my arm off the screen, I still had these problems. It would be a great app if you fix the actual mechanics of it.
