Pagesend: best screencasting app for iPad?

Among other good things that we accomplished on Monday, out Toolkit group played with a free app called Pagesend.  While there may be other more powerful screencasting apps out there, this free bit of software offers a great chance for simultaneous collaboration in realtime as a brainstorming tool, a common whiteboard, etc. Add in the fact that you can record voice along with what is occurring on the screen and you have a pretty great learning tool.  One potential drawback lies in how to export the files in a common format.  While that process is not seamless, it certainly can be done with relative ease.  Would love to hear some more about synchronous collaboration tools for the iPad…

  1. Have you looked at Explain Everything? I used it yesterday and liked it, but it took forever to upload the video to YouTube.

  2. PageSend if the only one I know that combines screencasting and shared whiteboard functionalities. Among tools for just screencasting, Explain Everything wins — although it is sometimes a bit buggy, it is well integrated with Dropbox and has ability to record a screencast of web browsing.

    There are a number of tools for a shared whiteboard. Of the 30 or so I tested (details are at http://bit.ly/ipadbiglist PageSend is the best one if you do not need people handwriting on different sheets at the same time. Incidentally, many apps I tested in this category were pretty buggy.
