One of the benefits of being a CTO is working with individuals and teams across Citrix to solve the simple to the complex problems our customers face.  I get amazing pride in watching teams push the boundaries and challenge the norm. Recently, Frederic Mayot and Matt Anderson took on the task to explore one of the oldest forms of communications and collaboration – handwriting.  The result is amazing and we have named it Talkboard.

Talkboard is an incredibly simple and intuitive collaborative whiteboard app. Anyone you invite to your Talkboard can write or sketch on the board. It updates live so everyone can see as the board evolves and share what is created. It is available exclusively for iPad in the iOS app store starting today for free, so please check it out.

For an inside look at Talkboard, co-creator Matt Anderson put together this quick 30-second tour we hope you enjoy:

If using Talkboard brings out your internal “Picasso,” please consider sharing your individual or team creations with us by tagging them #Talkboard and we will showcase it on our “Talkboard Artwork” board on Pinterest.

And one more thing…Talkboard has been an incredible journey from inception to market.  The product and team set new ground rules and challenged the status quo. Now that customers will have a chance to weigh in, we expect there is a lot we will learn.   We invite you to check back regularly to this blog as we share behind-the-scenes stories, updates and learnings we gather.
