I love this app! It's quite similar to Screen Chomp. Simply put, it's a recordable whiteboard app (sometimes called a slate).
It only comes with a choice of 7 colors of ink. But I actually find that sometimes less is more when it comes to customizing something like that. Users can choose to use the eraser tool or clear the entire slate. An 'undo' option is also present. The background can either be white or a picture you either take on the spot or import from your photo album.
You don't have to use the recording (audio and visual) option, but the button to start/stop recording is conveniently located on the bottom right corner of the app. Recorded work can then be uploaded to www.showme.com. At this point you have two options.
1. "Personal - Can be shared with anyone who you give a link to."
2. "Public - Share your ShowMe with the community and teach the world!"
It's quite easy to create an account on www.showme.com; a step you'll need to do no matter what option above you choose.
This app comes highly recommended. Grab it today from the App Store, you have nothing to lose and everything to show!
