Jamboard is G Suite's digital whiteboard that offers a rich collaborative
experience for teams and classrooms. Watch your creativity unfold: you can
create a Jam, edit it from your device, and share it with others. Everybody can
collaborate on the Jam anytime, anywhere. For businesses an...
Generally, Google’s apps aren’t great on iPad (Docs, Sheets, Gmail), but Jamboard has been done really well. Between accounts, the changes sync quickly. The app has subtle, but polished animations (like how things disintegrate when being erased from a different device), and everything shows up on the web as well. While it’s certainly useful as a business tool, it can also be used as a fun way to play handwritten games with a friend or family member remotely. It’s honestly surprising how well this app has been developed and designed when compared to Google’s other iOS apps.
Great for tutoring and updates in real time!!!
If you are trying to do work in real time, like tutor someone who lives far away from you in math for example, use this app. It updates in real time, has a web application, and is free. The way I used it: I was collaborating on a math problem and I was writing on my iPad, while the other person was 400 miles away on their laptop following along using the web app. It worked out great!!! Best part? It’s free!!!
I don’t get update changes
So I can live with moving tools around (like undo button from bottom left to bottom right) but what happened to the web browser? I can search for an image, but I can’t search for web pages any more. Also app on iPhone and iPad crash and don’t connect as consistently. Finally I couldn’t open a Jam from my iPad to a Jamboard, but I could do it with my iPhone. Used to be 5 stars, but functionality and
Amazing for remote team collaboration
With the right hardware, namely an iPad and Apple Pencil, this is a fantastic app that can be used for whiteboarding or note taking that syncs nicely with G Suite. I wish there was a way to add blobs of text other than through a sticky note.
Just another awesome addition to Googles office.
I use this app all the time for work, school and personal uses like making collage boards of goals and affirmations. Love this app!!
I love using this app as a virtual whiteboard for meetings—but now that Google has removed the Meet integration, I can no longer share the Jamboard in a Meet like I was previously able. That’s a bit frustrating.
I got this app to help me with virtual schooling my students during this COVID crisis. I thought it would be a game changer for me, but I can’t start a Jamboard. It just gives me an error message. I would love if you could fix it so that I can use it to teach students.
When trying to create a new “jam” there is error message that reads “Something went wrong. Please try again later.”
One Request and suggestion
Please please add the feature that allows to change the frame size to Square or any other resolution (pixel x pixel). This would be the game changer. Thank you.
Can’t join video Meet
They removed the capability of joining a Meet from this app. What the point of it then?
OMG SO GOOOD FOR KIDS!!!!
I loved it
App doesn’t work unless your team is on the same WiFi network
You definitely can not share this “innovative whiteboard” with people anywhere in the world, unless they are on the same WiFi network. I tried this out with two of my iPads at home while they were both connected to the same network. It was working fine until I attempted switching one iPad from using the WiFi to my cellphone data, and then I got disconnected from the jamboard and the devices were no longer able to stay connected with each other. The second you get disconnected from the jamboard, getting back in is incredibly difficult. Especially if both devices continue drawing. The jamboards will not sync up when you reconnect. This is a cool concept, but it just doesn’t work. It is just way too glitchy.
So much potential
This can be so much more with the iPad and pencil. It is fairly unstable right now as it crashes infrequently. Connection to jamboard is there with WiFi delay. Please develop this app Google! Primary use may have been intended as a whiteboard space but there's a lot of untapped potential utility in that tablet form with pencil compatibility. Just for reference I also have a Pixelbook and Google pen, but the apple pencil 2nd generation works better overall. (Magnetic charging, thin profile, double tap)
My favorite quick sketching app
I don't have a physical Jamboard but this app works great on the iPad with Pencil. Best part is the automatic sync to the web so I can view and share designs from the desktop. Also can Airplay from the iPad to Zoom calls and external displays. Wishlist? More efficient tool and color switching and easier board naming.
Great potential, limiting screen space
The game bird is a place to be free... until you run out of space. Then I presume they want you to create and name a new file? For each new page? Granted I'm testing it alone, but the fact I can't increase my space without leaving my board is irritating. Maybe the control is so obvious I missed it, but the online documentation makes no mention of adding boards or space to your existing jam.
