Using the Connect Meeting Whiteboard on Mobile Devices

Whiteboard features on Mobile are not OS dependent, rather, they are device dependent. While whiteboard content display is available on phones, whiteboard authoring is supported on tablets.  This is completely independent of the OS and applies to both iOS and Android.

The screen size is the primary mitigating factor; traditionally even the best phones have been too small to be used for effective whiteboard authoring: Pixel dimensions and resolution on phones have limitations that do not affect tablets. More specifically, while smartphone users can view the markup objects drawn by both tablets and desktop users, the following editable whiteboard feature are available on tablets:

  • drawing with the pencil tool or pen
  • the arranging object tool
  • the rectangle, ellipse, star and cross
  • the highlighter
  • move objects
  • delete objects
  • advance slide
  • undo
  • hide/unhidden menu
  • the line tool
  • single arrow, double arrow and 3D arrow
  • check mark

Note: The green pointer must be enabled by the Host on a computer. Mobile devices can display the green pointer.
