About This Software

Ever ran out of space while writing on a whiteboard? Or wanted to un-erase those notes from earlier? Or maybe felt like you could use some more boards in different colors to keep things organized?

All of this and more can be solved by using virtual whiteboards, and that is is exactly what Virtual Idea Area provides! VIA lets you create a practically infinite amount of virtual whiteboards, for which you can freely choose the size, color and position. It even lets you have patterned whiteboards. The markers don't smell, never run out, and they as well are available in any color you want.

With Virtual Idea Area you can express your ideas without limitation.
