Clipboard Adds an iPad App and Sharing Options

Clipboard is a Pinterest-like bookmarking service that launched in June. Today, Clipboard released a free iOS app and some useful collaboration options. The iOS app allows you to select all or part of page to clip to your Clipboard boards.

Clipboard has updated and clarified the sharing options for clipboards. There are four sharing settings you can use on each of your clipboards. The sharing settings are Reader, Writer, Admin, and Owner. Readers can only view clipboards that you share with them. Writers can add content to a clipboard. An Admin can edit boards, invite others to a board, and contribute to boards. An Owner can create boards and do all of the things an Admin can do.

Applications for Education
The new sharing options could be useful for teachers who want to share a set of bookmarks with students. Students working on a group assignment could use Clipboard's shared boards to work together to create a resource page.
