Smartboard: The best real-time collaboration apps have just arrived!
Happy Lunar New Year!
It’s a coincidence that Valentine’s Day and the Lunar New Year have come at about the same time for the past few years. This year, the Greengar team is pleased to have a big celebration.
Today, we’re very excited to announce our newest application: Smartboard, the best real-time collaboration app for mobile devices. During many sleepless nights in our Ho Chi Minh City development lab, we completely re-designed the drawing and connectivity functions of Whiteboard, our most successful application.
Whiteboard has set a track record that few other productivity apps can beat:
- Achieved 1 million downloads after only 2 months on the App Store
- Featured over 500 times by Apple
- Over half a million monthly active users worldwide
- Over 8 million downloads to date
However, we decided to take the challenge of beating ourselves! In 2013, the Greengar team committed to build Smartboard into the best collaboration app for our users. We appreciate their support over the past several years. The new Smartboard app arrives to the iOS App Store and Android Google Play today with many awesome features:
Connect 5 smartphones and tablets with Smartboard over the same Wi-Fi network. Join a canvas and collaborate in real-time. When people draw on their device, Smartboard instantly transfers their strokes to the other collaborators’ devices. Smartboard enables people to draw together in real-time, with changes reflected on all collaborators’ screens.
SKETCHING ON THE GO – iCLOUD, EVERNOTE, GOOGLE DRIVE
Smartboard also features a simple, intuitive UI and fast, smooth drawing. It includes a lot of nice design features, like undo and redo, the ability to quickly Start Over on a new canvas, and an amazing color picker with adjustable opacity and width for each stroke.
Smartboard can save your drawings to multiple cloud storage services including iCloud, Box, Evernote, and Google Drive!
✮ Special iPad Features ✮
· Text Tool: Enhance your photos and drawings with many special fonts, plus rotate and resize your text!
· Layers (not available when collaborating): Import photos from Facebook, Photo Albums, and iCloud on different layers, merge them together and enhance them with your awesome artistic skills.

Smartboard is also selected as a finalist for the Women 2.0 SF PITCH COMPETITION. Greengar’s Co-Founder Thuy Truong will be presenting Smartboard at the Women 2.0 Conference on February 14, 2013. This event will feature successful women entrepreneurs who reached milestones of billions, including a Facebook case study, and best practice presentations from some of the most successful female startup founders and executives in the technology industry.
We hope you like Smartboard. We look forward to your feedback!
