Why does the mobile app ask me to scan a QR code?2021-11-01T10:03:37-07:00

In order to sign into the JIBB Connect mobile app, you’ll need to create your JIBB account online and start a JIBB Workspace.

Inside the workspace control panel on the right, select “Mobile” under Input.

If it’s the first time you’re using the JIBB Connect, you’ll be required to use it to scan the QR code displayed in the control panel to pair the app with your account. This only needs to be done once, unless you log out of the mobile app.

Next time, simply have your mobile app open when you’re choosing your input and surface type, then click start.

How do I set up my phone to get the best results?2021-11-01T10:01:08-07:00

If you’re using the JIBB Connect mobile app as your input device, your selected writing surface will determine how you should set up your phone.

Whether you choose to write on a whiteboard or piece of paper, make sure you’re always fitting the whole writing surface inside the camera preview.

For whiteboard, we recommend using a phone stand or steady object to position your phone on its side in landscape mode.

For paper, we recommend using a phone stand or placing it inside a coffee mug so you can stand your phone upright in portrait mode, slightly leaning forward and aiming at your piece of paper.

Please refer to the user guides or tutorial videos below for more detailed instructions and setup examples.

Does JIBB need to be connected to the internet?2021-11-01T09:51:21-07:00

Yes. For JIBB to detect and capture your content you need to be connected to the internet, either via your network provider or WiFi.

How can I live share my JIBB session with others?2021-11-01T09:44:19-07:00

Does JIBB work with any writing surface?2021-11-01T11:09:58-07:00

  • Whiteboards (fixed or portable – use a black marker for best results)

What format will my session content be saved in?2021-11-01T11:15:01-07:00

Do I need a phone stand to use JIBB?2021-11-01T11:13:02-07:00
