Sharing content with others just got a lot more secure thanks to the new app Glassboard. The free app, which is available for the iPhone/iPod touch, is used to share items privately with members of a select group. Created by Sepia Labs, the service lets users create “boards,” which are groups of people around a common interest. From here, you can share messages, comments, photos, videos, and even your location. For example, maybe you wish to show off videos of your dog playing in the backyard. To do so, you’d upload the video via the app and then invite those that you wish to see the videos. According to the service’s FAQ page, Glassboard is like a silo where one can collect certain items for others to see. In this case, you decide who can see the items by sending them invitations. In other words, no invitation, no ability to see the contents of the “board.” What could make Glassboard appealing to many users is that it is also available on Android and Windows devices. Naturally, because of this, it expands the number of users who can use the service. After playing around with Glassboard for a while, we feel it has the potential to become very popular. As such, Glassboard comes highly recommended and is available in the App Store today.
