Apple just released a free new iPhone app – and fans are saying the same thing | The Sun

APPLE has launched a brand new app described as an "infinite canvas" for you and friends to use at the same time.

Freeform is a virtual whiteboard tool that's just landed on iPhone, iPad, and Mac – and it's completely free.

You can drag in photos or files, do drawings and annotations with your finger or an Apple Pencil, as well as add links and notes.

It's ideal for creative brainstorming and collaboration, especially in the age of work from home.

Everything is synced via iCloud.

And up to 100 people can participate in one canvas.

Of course, other Apple staples like Messages and FaceTime are heavily integrated too.

While it's been welcomed by geeks, some say Freeform has one slight drawback – the fact it's exclusive to Apple devices only.

"They should totally have a web version like ALL the collab app out there," one person wrote on reddit.

"Seems like the correct approach should’ve been a web/android version, which acts as marketing luring people to Apple with the premise of hooking into their ecosystem," another said.

"It will benefit organisations that are full-on Apple," a third added.

However, you can export canvas as a PDF, which may come in useful.

Apple first teased Freeform back in June during its WWDC show.

"Freeform opens up endless possibilities for iPhone, iPad, and Mac users to visually collaborate,” said Bob Borchers, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing.

"With an infinite canvas, support for uploading a wide range of files, iCloud integration, and collaboration capabilities, Freeform creates a shared space for brainstorming that users can take anywhere."
