Apple releases Freeform app for iPhone, iPad, and Mac
Apple has released its new Freeform app for iPhone, iPad, and Mac with the roll out of iOS 16.2, iPadOS 16.2, and macOS Ventura 13.1 today, introducing the cross-device flexible canvas app that gives users the ability to see, share, and collaborate all in one place.
Available now on the App Store, users can add photos, video, audio, documents, PDFs, web links, stickies, and more anywhere on a Freeform’s board. The app has a library of over 700 shapes and alignment guides for creating visuals, and allows users to scan paper documents with the built in document scanner to archive documents and annotate them, right on the board.
Freeform boards can be shared via email, link, or using Messages with up to 100 collaborators in the same board. Users can use their finger, or Apple Pencil on a compatible iPad, to draw anywhere on the canvas, with a variety of brush styles and colors.
Freeform allows collaborators to start a session from FaceTime and see the updates from others right in the Messages thread. And with iCloud, all boards stay in sync, whether there were created on a Mac, an iPad, or on iPhone.
Freeform is available now from the App Store on devices running iOS 16.2, iPadOS 16.2, and macOS Ventura 13.1.
