There are four panels for SlideShow Commander for Palm:

Scribble Panel

When a presentation is playing (when the "Slide Show" is being viewed), then this shows a thumbnail of the current slide and allows all Pebbles users to annotate the slide. There is only one cursor, so users must take turns, but Pebbles automatically changes the color so each user has a different color by default. As long as users take turns nicely, their annotations will be in different colors.
