The Best Answer
Webpad is an incredible app that lets you whiteboard notes on the iPad and then broadcast it on the web in real time! Anyone that you give access to can navigate to your whiteboard via any web browser and they can see everything you draw on the iPad live. Your whiteboards are auto-saved as you draw and every time you clear the canvas and saves to the web, where you can always access your whiteboards. In meetings, you can hook your laptop up a projector and you have a full-blown presentation set up. The only drawback is that there's no full screen mode online. It's still definitely an extremely useful business app for the iPad.
Air Sketch is just like WebPad, allowing you to annotate pdfs and sketch on top of images from your iPad and have it display in real time on your monitor via a web browser. The main difference is the viewing area on WebPad is smaller and your url can be shared, whereas Air Sketch gives you more real estate but no sharing. Air Sketch also lets you record videos of your live whiteboarding sessions.
This is a bit of a hack, but it works. You would first turn your ipad into a second monitor using an app called Air Display, and then use a drawing app such as Photoshop on your computer to draw with using the iPad. To do this, follow these steps:
- Download and install Air Display on your iPad
- Download and install the Air Display controller on your computer
- Open Air Display on your iPad
- Go to your toolbar on your computer and click 'Turn Air Display on', and then select your iPad
- Go to System Preferences > Display and click 'Mirror Displays'
- Open your drawing program and use your finger or a stylus to draw on your iPad
- Everything you draw on the iPad will also show up on your computer. The only limitation is that the resolution on your computer will be limited to that of the iPad.
