Microsoft Whiteboard launches on iOS, hits the web in preview

Two months after first launching on Windows 10, Microsoft's Whiteboard collaboration app is expanding its horizons to iOS and the web. The iOS version is generally available starting today, while the web app is available as a preview.

Whiteboard is a tool built for team members to collaborate on a digital canvas, whether in-person or remotely. Inking and keyboard support are on board here for jotting down notes and idea, but you can also use Whiteboard to flesh out your brainstorming sessions with images. The app also sports some extra smarts, such as shape recognition and the ability to automatically recognize when you're making a table.

Once you're done with a Whiteboard session, it'll be saved to the cloud and remain accessible for additional edits on any platform.

Whiteboard is available for free now on the App Store for devices on iOS 9 or later. Meanwhile, the web app will be available at{.nofollow} for commercial users in preview once IT administrators enable it. In either case, you'll need a Microsoft Account or Office 365 account to get started.
