Drop the Paperboard

A virtual whiteboard that actually works

The problem: working with a team on an idea, a new design or a strategy is, by itself, hard. But unless you’re all in the same room for a long time, it also involves lots of email (where you loose the remarks you needed to include) and/or hundreds of paper sheets (you never know what the last version is). Most of the time, it does not work.

The solution: a big whiteboard tool, where anyone can write its remarks or propose ideas and changes, that you can discuss and follow. This is exactly what Conceptboard is : a tool for teams to work on a common project, as everyone was there (but they’re not).

What it does better: the intuitive UI, the possibility to import any kind of file (well… almost any) in the board, and the easyness to comment and discuss (like a Facebook status) a specific detail. Then transform it into a todo, check if everyone agrees, makes it a very powerful tool.

Despite there is no app, it works perfectly on your iPad.
Multi-fingers gestures, zoom in, scribbling, it’s all working in Safari. Probably some room for improvement, but very nice work.

Some features look a bit superfluous, and may slow the app.
For example, do you need a video chat integrated into your collaboration tool? Using skype, Facetime or your phone on the side makes much more sense.
