    Pros

    We use it as a powerful brainstorming tool, even among colleagues in the same room. It allows us to conceptualise complex ideas with many components and put them all in one place if they relate to each other.

    Cons

    Sometimes some of the icons can be a little unclear as to what they do (although this may simply be a function of my slightly advanced age).

    Pros

    I like that RealtimeBoard is very simple and flexible to use. I do not have any more restrictions in my work, as before. I'm satisfied with simple objects that I can add and unlimited space in my actions. The most pleasant thing I've discovered for my work with this program is that I can cooperate with colleagues while being in different places. Another important plus is regular updates and training materials that help you understand how to use the program more efficiently. Thanks to RealtimeBoard I discuss working moments and exchange knowledge, information with my team. I do not need to contact team members to spend time on this, since all users of the program can see all the changes that occur in real time.

    Cons

    I like everything, and I'm very pleased with the program, which greatly simplifies my work. The only problem that I happened to learn is that sometimes documents are created in different sizes.

    Pros

    The product itself it just so easy to use and so powerful. It has allowed us to effortlessly collaborate with international teams and proved to be far more useful than we ever even imagined. What makes this world-class is that their support is just as amazing as their product. They've helped to provide demos for our new users and are always super helpful with any questions I've ever had.

    Cons

    I honestly can't say that I have anything that I dislike about this product. Anything that I've even thought could be improved upon in the past has been improved upon. They are so good with acting upon the feedback they get from their customers. It's so refreshing to see a company that is so devoted to providing great user experience.

    Team collaboration and team whiteboards made easy.

    Pros

    It allows sharing and working on whiteboard spaces in realtime while simultaneously providing audio-video feedback between members. No additional software tools are required. Whiteboard provides enough basic tools and templates.

    Cons

    Video and audio quality in conference is worse than any other specialized software (Skype or similar). It lacks some features that google docs is having for example, but whiteboard system is quite ok.

    Great for brainstorming with team members.

    Pros

    Realtimeboard acts as a virtual whiteboard for our team to brainstorm ideas, present proposals, graphs, and update our business model canvas. We love the ease of throwing together a quick idea and inviting pertinent team members.

    Cons

    The pricing is relatively cheap, especially if you are on the starter plan which is free but as you grow expect to pay a small premium.

    I use realtimeboard to tutor my clients remotely. It works great. There are a lot of features. I really like the fact that I can upload images directly from my google drive.

    Cons

    I currently have a FREE educator account, however I feel that the monthly payment is for the paid service are a little pricey. Also, there is not a wipe board action button so you physically have to erase the board "by hand"

    Learning process may be slow for some without experience with similar tools. Some menus are a bit confusing at first.

    Pros

    I've tried out a lot of programs like this but this one excels in the features Department. It's always being updated with plenty of new things to try, making it effortless to share with students and other collaborators. Everyone wins with this one!

    Cons

    The one thing this program could improve in is that of timely customer support. It seems for the user with the free account any questions or concerns one may have may end up being put on the shelf for quite a while before the issue is resolved.

    Really helps our largely remote team collaborate in so many different ways, in a really fun, creative and productive way. We co-created our business plan on RTB. We use it for gathering newspaper clippings relevant to our startup. I wireframe our app in it. My colleague built the skeleton for our investment deck in this.. it's great for so many things beyond brainstorms.

    Pros

    Very advanced - tons of control, so many features; all useful. Very fast and reliable and addictive. Beautifully engineered, easy to use. Boards can be made public so anyone can comment without logging in, if you want.

    Cons

    I miss one feature compared to Stormboard which we used before (and is now hugely inferior) which is 'substorms' (which were effectively a board 'inside' a post it note; great for deep diving into a big idea) otherwise, very hard to fault RTB!

    Pros

    Cons

    There are no real cons except my desire to have access to some of the functionality that is available in the paid plan within the free plan, though I understand the value added.

    Wish I could have used this for the past 20 years. As a designer its rewarding to be able to create, capture and share the ideation and development of complicated solutions - with such speed and transparency.

    Pros

    The value it creates when we use it is unsurpassed. Its the best tool I have for starting a complicated project with or without teams.

    It can be little bit expensive if you don´t plan to used every week. Fortunately, their free account it´s very capable for a small team that it´s just starting out, so no problem really.

    A ton of benefits - it's allowed me to plan with a bigger grasp of the big picture while being able to capture all the details when needed. I've ditched 2 or 3 other productivity tools (to do tools, tasking tools, tracking tools) because RTB does it all and does it better. LOVE. IT.

    Pros

    Incredible, unbelievable flexibility that can finally keep up with my mind and my team! A wide open space with no precepts to interfere with rapid ideation, solutioning, organizing - anything we need. AWESOME! The UX has been incredibly well thought out. It has nailed keyboard shortcuts, mouse control, tablet....the UX auto adjusts to your input method and NOTIFIES you that it does so. Unreal. All the tools work as you expect, every detail has been thought out, every rough edge and interruption to FLOW has been removed. I can't emphasize enough how smooth the flow is and the fact that I have had ZERO "wtf are you doing?!" moments using the tool - rare for me because I am exceptionally demanding and impatient with my tools. One of the best software products I've used in years. Thanks guys.

    Cons

    If I switch away from an RTB tab then later switch back, the long load time is kind of a drag :( Not a huge deal but it would be nice if it was fixed - the gap really interrupts thought process and flow during fast moving sessions. Not sure it's resolvable, but it would be nice :)

    Put together a lot of information about research!

    Pros

    That you have a BIG slide to put a lot of information in one place. I think is really good for doing investigation and research. One of the best things is you literally paste any kind of stuff: videos, links, pictures, etc.

    Cons

    Is kind of slow. You will need a very fast internet connection and a good computer. Also, they should offer more different plans for startups and entrepreneurs.

    Pros

    I love real-time board. It really is real-time. It's the small things for us that really work well, for example you can see each other's mouse position, so as we are discussing things over the phone on a conference call, you can highlight and circle things with your mouse that everybody will see happening instantly. He boards are unlimited in size, so you can expand and be as creative as you need to be without worrying about running out of white board. As for the whiteboard itself, so simple to use: you can add boxes, add notes, pop up notes, tables, etc. Overall, it's an integral part of our team now. Thank you.

    Cons

    There's now much I can say I like least. But there is one annoyance. There isn't a concsistency with the keyboard controls between web app and Mac app. We work on multiple machines so don't always know what to expect when we start using it.

    1. The huge number of templates allow me to put my problem statements in those formats & take it further to conclusions 2. Ease of use & stability! 3. Amazing extensions 4. Love the new look. More playful & important stuff is out- like where am I on the entire board, presentation settings

    Cons

    1. The Mac app feels like a web-view. Wish it felt more native. 2. Sometimes, when the board is big, the panning is a little slow.

    It helped me visually collaborate with my team of designers and clients, making revision processes infinitely faster.

    Pros

    Regular updates. Being able to create tons of separate boards and share with team people is great. Being able to comment on specific boards is amazing. Being able to collaberate with team members and clients is great!

    Cons

    Boards with a lot of content may be slow in some cases, making the attached media slow to display. But this does not affect the user experience.
