Great for teaching Tagtool, for example at workshops or presentations

  1. In the menu, choose Graphics > External Display and turn on Demo Mode
  2. Restart your tablet
  3. Connect an external display

-> now the user interface is shown on the external display, and all your touches in the interface are visualised with blue circles. Like this you audience can see exactly what you are doing when you are demonstrating how Tagtool works.

After you deactivate Demo Mode, you need to restart the iPad again.


how to rotate the drawing and animate it


Hey Vector,

Hold 2 Fingers and twist layer with 2 fingers to get a smooth rotation.
I recorded a video in Demo Mode showing you how it´s done.


Multiplayer with Tagtool Basic users

For those of you who use Tagtool for workshops or with students —

You need Tagtool Pro for creating Multiplayer sessions. But users of the free Basic version can join multiplayer sessions created by Pro users.

So you as the teacher, if you have Pro, you can create a session and your students can join and work together without having to purchase Pro!


just wanted to say congratulations. one of the only visionary apps ever made.


As a teacher I love the feature where kids can join without pro version. That is exatly what made this app useable (read afordable) for my school.
