School Blackboard - App Review

How about a blackboard... in fact a dark green board?

Now for the ACIDS test:

You are simply presented with a dark green screen (apart from the adverts). The tools are limited to a chalk (white or black) and a thickness chooser, as well as a rubber which works exactly as it would on a blackboard (no need to wet it though!). In addition you can save any of your works as favourites and edit/recall them later. It's neat and simple.

This is the free version which includes adverts. The full version also allows you to choose chalk colours as well as sending your artwork by SMS or Email, assigning pictures to contacts and (of course) no ads.

This is not really the first word that springs to mind! I'm sure I saw a taxi driver using this as a name board to collect a passenger... remember that this is only finger writing so, it does not necessarily look very professional. There are plenty of Apps that allow you to enter anything (including typewritten text) onto a screen.

The App works perfectly.

As all data is saved on your iOS device, there are no security issues... except for anything you wouldn't want anyone to see.
