Product: Jot! Whiteboard
iTunes Link: Jot! Whiteboard
Cost: $4.99 - Limited Free Version available ($0.99 In-App Purchase)
Jot! Whiteboard is pretty much exactly what it advertises to be. It creates a whiteboard for doodling, taking notes, mapping (cruder version of iThoughts). Jot! has a free version however, you are limited to one canvas. While an In-App purchase of $0.99 allows for live sharing (a great feature for students), we feel that the $4.99 version provides more options. Besides having unlimited canvas, there is the option of importing Jots from other users. Exporting is available on both versions. There is also no iPhone version, this app is for iPad only.
From offering a canvas with various art tools to allowing live sharing, we find that this is a useful app for most students.
The mind mapping tools on this software are very rudimentary. Also not having an iPhone version makes this app a little unfinished in our eyes. A bonus would be having a desktop app to view Jots on a bigger screen.
So so! We feel that this app is great for some users. If you are a student and have an iPad that you can use at your college then this is a great app. Beyond that the note taking, doodling and mind mapping features are ok.
