Do you have an idea that you’d like to brainstorm on? Maybe work with others on it? Learn how you can work on your ideas and collaborate with others with the Freeform app on the iPad.

Freeform is an app introduced by Apple with iPad OS 16.2 that is also available on the Mac and iPhone. It allows you to brainstorm ideas by creating a board where you can add objects such as a seating chart, house layout or logo idea. You can also collaborate with others. To use Freeform, you create a board and then draw or place objects on it. You can resize, rotate and move objects around on the board. You can also change the color and add outlines to objects, duplicate or delete them, and add text. If you have a permanent object on your board, you can lock it so that it cannot be moved. You can also add comments, format text and add images from various sources.
