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

It’s a good concept, but sometimes it glitches and I get missing assignments.

Not the best

In my experience its not the best tool to use. First of all it glitches and show that you turned in your assignment even when you haven’t. Second of all when a file cant be correctly imported it glitches and shows a error screen for a frame on the screen. Third of all editing on showbie its buggy and not great. For the first while of using it it seems fine but when you use it for 3, 4 years you start to notice the cons

Showbie is a perfect way to share documents, audio files, etc. with my virtual tutoring students. I like the ease of sharing assignments between students.
