Uniboard: Easy Whiteboarding for Tablet Users



Cyril Pavillard just sent over a link to Uniboard, an interactive whiteboard application built for Tablet PC users. From the looks of his video demo, this applilcation is incredibly simple to use and I hope to give it a spin. You can import documents such as Powerpoint and PDF files and annotate them during your presentation. There are a handful of add-ons that allow you to quickly add Google maps, YouTube videos, Wikipedia articles and other web content on the fly.

There’s a built-in recording tool so you can share your presentation with your colleagues or students when you’re done.

There are both Mac and PC versions of Uniboard. If you don’t have a Tablet PC the application works with any graphics tablet or interactive whiteboard. There is a free ad supported version if you want to give Uniboard a spin. Licenses cost $49 for professional users and $29 for educational users.

    WOW! This thing is pretty cool! It’s like a souped up Journal geared towards presentation and mark up!

    If the Ink quality is as good on my Cintiq as my Tablet PC, I’m definitely giving them my money!

    Well, it gave me utter crap lines on the Cintiq. Also it was really confused by my dual monitor set up, exhibiting some wacky bugs while Inking (like Inking a good 6 inches away from my pen in upper left part of the Cintiq).

    On the TPC, it’s beautiful. On the Cintiq, it’s bunk.

    I’d wager that it does crap quality Ink on regular Wacom tablets as well.

    Hello Shogmaster, I would be really interested to know more about the issues you encounter as Uniboard is used daily by hundreds of teachers on Wacom tablets without any problem and taking advantage of the multi-screen feature.

    Can you please contact us at [email protected] and send me a few more information about your configuration… after all, if we are in beta, it’s to find out those last nasty bugs.

    I’ve submitted the email w video link.

    The ticket # I got back was 142.

    Problem fixed, this now works perfectly on Cintiq. Thank you Shogmaster for your help.

    I actually had the same problem with the writing capability. I requested help from Uniboard’s support and they sent me a link for a new driver for my Wacom pen. It has worked like a dream ever since.

    I had another problem (found a bug) and it was cleared up in less than a week. The team there is very responsive.

    For teaching, this product is so much better than OneNote, which I have been using the past 3 years. I am really impressed.

    Yes, I’ve used this in the classroom for a year. This is extremely powerful – bringing together text, video, and images.
