Inko 2, our collaborative whiteboard app, is not quite wrapped up yet, but we thought it could help to offer it through a public beta program considering the current lockdown situation. We’ve been working hard on it for the last 18 months, and the time has come to share it.
What is Inko?
Inko is a collaborative whiteboard that lets you draw together using multiple iPad, iPhone or Mac, and even interact on Apple TV. Ideal for team coworkers in a brainstorming session, for a creative classroom project, or for an interactive meeting between a graphic designer and their client.
What’s New in Version 2?
So, what does Inko 2 bring over the first release? A lot(*), but its core feature is collaborative drawing over the Internet so that you can interact with your grandchildren, students, friends, or colleagues from distant places. Combined with FaceTime audio or even video, Inko 2 provides rich drawing-based human interactions about teaching, brainstorming, creativity, or to share family love.
About the Beta Program
This beta program is invite-based, as we need to scale up our servers along the way, as well as fix any remaining issues. For this reason, we’ll add 500 new seats every Monday starting April 20. Also, we’ll let you know when new seats are being added through Facebook and Twitter — you’ll have to be quick to download the app through TestFlight when the update pops up. Finally, we’ll keep the beta app functional for 3 months (until the end of June) even if we release the app in the meantime, so that people in need can continue to use it for free. No signup will be asked for.
