We see more and more intelligent apps pop up for Microsoft´s Surface Hub, the big screen interactive whiteboard PC for businesses.
While this device runs any kind of Windows software, it is clearly meant for meetings, presentations, group work and maybe some creative appliances.
But for a practical use that goes beyond presentations, it requires apps that adopt well to the big screen.
CollaBoard is such a Surface Hub enabled UWP app, which promises to not only make meetings more interactive, but also to connect different device types.
Microsoft seems to like it and has just nominated developer IBV as App Creator of the Year contest. (You can vote here until Thursday.)
CollaBoard – Realtime Collaboration Across Devices
CollaBoard allows teams to share a big interactive dashboard on Windows PCs, Tablets, Phones and even the HoloLens for real-time collaboration. All team members can add their inputs any time which then is shared instantly among all connected devices.
These can be sticky notes, photos, videos and any kind of document shared via Drag&Drop. Thanks to seamless integration with Skype for Business, this also works nicely on virtual meetings.
CollaBoard is available via a subscription model, with plans starting from $ 9.99 that include 10 GB of free cloud storage. You can test it without syncing as a free download from the Windows Store.
