Ever thought of using your iPad to share hand-drawn messages or show off your artistic talents with friends and loved ones even though they’re miles away? And in real time to boot? Now you can with the newly released WebPad for the iPad, an innovative app that easily lets users sketch and draw on the device while others are watching on a web browser as it’s happening. Here’s how it works:
1. Start the App
2. Tell your friends the WebPad URL
3. Draw, doodle, write, drop in your thoughts on your iPad
4. Your iPad screen is being shown on the the webpad web page, realtime, stroke by stroke!
WebPad is rather basic in its features though (several colors and brush sizes are available), so don’t expect it to replace the likes of ArtStudio for iPad and SketchBook Pro anytime soon. Still the applications of WebPad are almost limitless, be it a professor making notes during a lecture and sharing them with his/her students or some bloke proposing to his girlfriend in “real-time” (probably not advisable). Take a look at the video showing the app in action after the break.
