Features and Functionality

With Bluescape Mobile, you can access most of the functionality of the Web app, and the look and user experience are almost identical. There are also additional features available on the mobile app, including:

  • The ability to sign in by scanning a QR code.
  • The ability to use the iPad and Apple Pencil to write notes, draw, ideate, and mark up content in the workspace.
  • Dictation support for notecards and text.
  • The ability to take photos from your device and add them directly to the workspace.
