Hi, I've been trying to use this iPad app to whiteboard with colleagues using their own iPads, and while it works great - thanks! - there's one thing in particular that makes it difficult to conduct an effective whiteboard session over telephone, and that's the ability to have a "pointer".

It is a real handicap not being able to point to or otherwise indicate which part of the drawing is being referred to during a discussion. Imagine talking to someone over the phone as you build out a flow chart or topology diagram. It's vital to be able to easily indicate or gesture towards the drawing as I speak.

Can you please consider adding an additional tool item that serves as simple a pointer? When selected, it would display a obvious pointer to all connected clients. of course, the pointer shouldn't draw or otherwise affect the screen - it should only follow the movements of the person whose is using the pointer. Anyone connected could use their own pointer, which would display on the other devices. Also, it would be nice if the pointer was semi-transparent so that someone's pointer doesn't obscure the portion of the drawing it is covering.
