(Lafayette, CO) January 21, 2019–Today bulb Digital Portfolios, a modern learning tool used by students and educators, released their native iOS app. A premium feature exclusive to the new app is a best-in-class multimodal screen capture function, which allows a user to screen capture video of themselves drawing on or annotating an image while narrating their process simultaneously.

Our iOS app is all of these things and is the best learning app in today’s market,” said Erik Petrik, co-founder and chief creative officer at bulb. “The design is beautiful and simple and its robust functionality allows the user to record any type of teachable or shareable moment.”
