What is the history and popularity of the app?

FlockDraw was originally created to give users a new, improved way to collaborate on creative projects. The application can also be used for entertainment. Regardless of why visitors return to FlockDraw, the site was intended to provide a creative space for people to collaborate. FlockDraw is a part of Gigenet Cloud, a company that offers Linux and Windows server hosting among other related services.

What are the differences to other apps?

FlockDraw is unique in the way that it allows as many users as necessary to enter a room and participate. The drawing occurs in real time, so users can see what other participants are adding as they add it. This helps decrease the amount of time necessary to collaborate on a creative project. Rather than emailing information and waiting for a response, meetings can be scheduled from anywhere with an internet connection. The participants can help others visualize their ideas and suggestions by drawing them for all to see!
