What can you use the app for?

A Web Whiteboard, or AWW (awwapp.com), presents users with an easy way to work on a whiteboard using a desktop computer, laptop, tablet or Smartphone. The application works on all modern internet browsers and requires no downloads. The user is given a few simple tools that come with a great deal of versatility. The color tool provides the user with a rainbow of options when coloring a diagram or other visual element. A simple pencil tool is included that offers a thin, medium and thick tip along with a basic eraser function. The menu gives the user access to sharing and saving tools. Users can link their whiteboard in a post, invite others to view it on the AWW site or clear it to start over again.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

A Web Whiteboard has drawn the attention of some users, especially educators who can really appreciate a versatile display tool. The application includes only very simple functions, but these seem to do the job well for most users. A Web Whiteboard was created by Senko Rasic. The application was intended to give internet users a simple way to share ideas, information and more through their own visualizations. The current version is very watered down, but does the job well.

What are the differences to other apps?

One thing most user notice about A Web Whiteboard is its simplicity. The user interface only contains three buttons and the drawing space. This is very appealing for users who need a simple, easy to use tool that requires no learning. Others may find this characteristic to be a negative trait because AWW seems to be lacking in the more sophisticated features that its competitors offer (such as pre-made shapes and design elements). A Web Whiteboard is unique primarily because of how simple it is.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Even though A Web Whiteboard contains little in the way of features, the application still manages to look good. The user interface consist mostly of the blank whiteboard, which the user can create diagrams, images, maps or whatever else they like on. A row of three simple but professional looking buttons is tucked along the left hand side, giving the user access to different colors and drawing tools. A newcomer can easily learn how to use all AWW features in a matter of minutes (in some cases, seconds).

How does the registration process work?

A new user is not required to create an account to use A Web Whiteboard. The application is ultra convenient. The user merely clicks the green “Start Drawing” button found long the lower, left hand side of the homepage to begin. After doing so, the user is taken directly to their whiteboard and can begin drawing, sharing or inviting. When saving a whiteboard, the document is downloaded and saved to the user’s computer.

What does it cost to use the application?

A Web Whiteboard is a watered down application that would not do well to charge a fee. Luckily the creators have kept the application as appealing as it can be by offering free access to everyone. All internet users can visit AWW and start drawing on a new virtual whiteboard for free. There is no subscription required and the user is never limited. Whiteboards can be downloaded and shared or linked to using the tools provided.
