Upon arriving on https://awwapp.com/ and clicking Start drawing, you immediately arrive at an empty whiteboard and you can draw right away.
The whiteboard is not yet shared with other people - it's your private drawing area. You can invite other people at any time from the menu (see below). You can use Web Whiteboard just fine even if you never want to invite anyone to draw with you.
Selecting the image tool will immediately open up the image-open dialog, in which you can choose the image from your computer or device to add to the board. On iPhones, iPads and Android phones and tablets, you'll have the choice of taking a new photo or selecting an existing image from your photos / camera roll.
After you make a selection, your image will be shown in the center of the board, and you will be able to move it around, resize it and rotate it. If you're on a touchscreen device (tablet or smartphone), you can move the image around by holding and dragging it, and you can resize and rotate it using the standard two-finger movement. If you're on a computer, you'll have green handles on the corners of the image - clicking those will resize and rotate the image.
When you're satisfied, select the green checkmark to actually add the image to the board. You can also cancel the whole thing by selecting the red stop sign next to the green checkmark. Please note that for large images, and depending on your Internet connection, it may take a while to upload the image to the board, and likewise, to download and display it each time the board is displayed (eg. when you rejoin it, or when you use an undo operation). This can often happen with photos taken with a smartphone, since modern phones have many-megapixel cameras and can create images with considerable file sizes.
When the text tool is selected, clicking or tapping anywhere in the board will allow you to write a line of text there. When done, hit the "Enter" key or select "Done" on the on-screen keyboard. You can cancel the operation any time by hitting "escape" key or, on touch devices, hiding the keyboard.
For touchscreen devices without a keyboard, bringing the keyboard on screen may have visible side-effect on the whiteboard (panning and zooming). Do not worry, the board will correctly re-display and your text will be added exactly where you wanted after the keyboard is hidden.
The text will be written in currently-selected color. If you change your mind, you can select another color from the menu at any time while writing the text. You can also drag the text around to reposition it anywhere in the board, which is useful if you're not sure in advance (before adding the text) where it should be positioned.
After the text is added to the board, it can't be changed any longer (except by erasing it using the eraser tool, or undoing the text operation).
You can undo almost any operation you do on the board, including the eraser. The only exception is if you clear the entire board using the Clear tool. To undo your last operation, just select the Undo tool and your last operation will immediately be revoked.
If you have uploaded big images to the board, undoing may take some time as the entire board is redrawn and images are re-downloaded to it. Also please note that in the shared whiteboard, you can only undo YOUR operation - you can't undo anything someone else drew (or erased) on the board. This makes it painless to fix your mistakes without accidentally interfering with someone else drawing on the board.
Whether you're drawing alone or use a shared whiteboard, you can post the board online as image, so others can see the result of your work.
Shared boards exist as long as there's activity in them. After two hours of inactivity, the board will be closed, and everything in it erased.
