[prMac.com] Mons (Wallonia), Belgium – Creaceed introduces Inko – Group Edition, a new variant to their real-time collaborative whiteboard app for iPad, iPhone and Apple TV, that can now be purchased through Apple’s Volume Purchase Program (VPP) by schools and enterprises. Just like its free counterpart, the Group Edition app lets users draw collaboratively in real time on the same canvas, offering network-less connectivity, a remarkable drawing experience, as well as live TV mirroring and interaction. Both app variants are compatible with each other.
Inko’s peer-to-peer connectivity makes infrastructure network or internet access superfluous, offering a one-tap setup process that enables easy deployment in most situations. Inko also offers a beautiful pixel-free visualization with vibrant colors on wide color displays (P3).
Ready for Enterprise and Education:
With its nomadic connectivity, Inko – Group Edition is particularly well suited for schools and businesses. Furthermore, the free Apple TV companion app enables live mirroring of contents on large screens, up to 4K, and also offers innovative interaction with the remote used as a laser pointer. Moreover, the support for standard TV sets makes it an affordable alternative to expensive and less flexible interactive whiteboards.
Inko also offers full compatibility with the new & more affordable 6th-gen iPad, introduced by Apple at their education event in Chicago (March 2018), and a remarkable drawing experience through its extensive support for Apple Pencil as well as the Logitech Crayon. And with the availability of the Group Edition variant through Apple’s VPP Store, Inko is a great match for schools.
“Inko is our fastest growing app so far, nearing 200.000 downloads after just one month. We believe Inko can be an advantageous alternative to dedicated interactive whiteboards, being more affordable, more easily deployed, and running on off-the-shelf devices (iPad, TV sets) that can serve numerous other purposes.” says Raphael Sebbe, Creaceed’s Founder.
