Sketch and annotate pictures wirelessly in your browser from your iPad in real time!
✭✭✭ Previously featured by Apple on the New and Noteworthy list. ✭✭✭
The iPad is perfect for drawing and sketching, but it hasn’t been easy to record or share your work in real-time. Until now.
Just fire up Air Sketch on the iPad and open the specified URL from any HTML5 compatible browser on another computer on the local network to see your sketches in real-time as you draw. There’s no additional client software to install. Use Air Sketch at home, the office, or even with a friend’s laptop.
Tip: You can also find the link in Desktop Safari’s Bonjour bookmarks: Show All Bookmarks menu -> Bonjour.
Connect your laptop to a projector to present diagrams and sketch wirelessly to a big screen.
Air Sketch is also perfect for recording videos of your drawings, sharing them with remote colleagues via online meeting or desktop sharing software (such as iChat), or incorporating the iPad into your desktop-based workflow.
Note: Air Sketch is designed to work optimally with a single computer connected to the same local network as your iPad.

What’s new in v1.7:
– Tap erase once to erase the drawing layer, and tap again to erase the background image.
– When setting a new background image, the previous remote sketch is erased only after editing the new one is complete. This prevents unnecessary blank screens on the remote display.
What’s new in v1.6:
– Pan and zoom using 2 fingers. Tip: Write in finer detail when zoomed in. The eraser size is relatively smaller when zoomed in.
– Email your sketches as PDF or JPEG images.
