Several ideas and prototypes were tried and failed. After months working tirelessly, we reached the consensus of building a product that recreates a conference room experience where everyone has a common brainstorming tool - the whiteboard. To emulate that, we decided to build a critical feature called "Notepad", which would be used as a collaborative whiteboard for real-time exchanging of content. We eventually added in features to allow access to websites and cloud storage. For all these functions to really make a change in our life, they are delivered on portable yet powerful devices: iPhones and iPads.
We are thrilled to bring to market a platform that would make it possible for everyone to connect in highly engaged conversations. We strongly believe that the app will be useful not only in daily conversations but also in online education, business meetings, customer service, remote medical diagnosis, etc. There are many ways that VoxyPAD can benefit our life and we hope you will soon find yours.
