Imagine you are on a meeting and you have just made a presentation on the big screen in front of the executive committee. You want to validate each comment and idea offered by the audience during the Q&A session that follows. Instead of nodding or writing down on paper, you can transform your iPad into a wireless whiteboard. For that, Air Sketch is an essential presentation tool specially made for your iPad tablet.

Air Sketch
is very simple to use. Once you have opened this iPad app, visit the specified URL address from any HTML5 compatible web browser on any computer on the local network and bam. As your iPad transforms into a white whiteboard for your audience, you can present your notes and drawing in real-time. No additional client software is required. All you have to do is to connect the desktop or laptop to a projector. While drawing on your wireless connected iPad screen, you can even walk around the room .

Air Sketch iPad app can also be a very useful tool in the classroom, as it allows you to roam the class as you lecture and make annotations on the virtual whiteboard. During design meetings, this iPad app can be used to provide a .PDF of the design concept.

Featuring different stroke options such as pencil line, markers, pens, and highlighter styles, Air Sketch can be successfully used as a stand-alone drawing app, too. Other features include choosing from your preset color options, undo and redo options, as well as the ability to email your notes or drawings directly from this iPad app. Now you can work on plans and personal projects while doing something else as well, such as watching TV or intermittently handling chores around the house, because immediately when you get an idea you can transcribe it on the app.

Air Sketch is available on the app store for $9.99.
