FigJam brings its app to easily draw and share ideas on the iPad

Figma, the design tool originally built for the web, today launches FigJam for the iPad. In this online whiteboard, teams can imagine and brainstorm together, making it easier for colleagues to sketch out the early days of a project in a clean way.

FigJam for iPad brings the same tools that Figma users already have on the web, but with the convenience of being able to do it all on the iPad with the apple pencil or even using the Magic Keyboard. Since everything happens in real time, web and iPad users can work together with ease.

“People just want to try Figma on the iPad and it’s finally here. It’s really an interesting and accessible way for people to create on the go and also at home,” said Rob Bye, Product Manager of Mobile Apps and desktop at Figma “FigJam for iPad brings a more humane way to work remotely.”

In this whiteboard, users can create an iterative design flow with live collaboration that keeps you in the loop whether you’re working remotely or in the office. Here are some of its features:

  • An easy to use toolbar which focuses less on precision and polish, and instead leans on joyous exploration and collaboration;
  • A toolbox of plugins, templates and widgets that instantly add customization to any file – whether you want to create a team icebreaker, speed up your team flow, or create structure;
  • Stamps and Emotes are a way to respond instantly and provide feedback, without relying on text;
  • Insertable stickers allow a small dose of big personality wherever your file needs a little punctuation.

According to Figma, here are the most common uses for FigJam for iPad:

  • Low fidelity design: it’s not about pixel perfection, it’s about early ideas;
  • Annotate designs: leave comments and thoughts as you go, solo or with your team;
  • Sketch flow and diagrams: quickly map flows with out-of-the-box shapes and automatic connectors;
  • handwritten notes: make comments more personal and human;
  • Write down ideas: Capture slivers of imagination wherever you are. Replace the physical notebook with a digital notebook.

FigJam for iPad, in particular, wants to make comments more personal. With your finger or a apple pencilyou can circle annotations, underline and annotate words and sketches on the canvas.

Its users can also use a larger desktop screen while using an iPad as a second screen for quick annotations. As everything happens in real time, teams can also take advantage of collaborative sessions.

FIgJam for iPad is available here on the App Store. And you can know more about this update here.
