jit5 has been developed in HMTL5, enabling schools to run it any modern device, such as a tablet or smartphone. Existing functionality has been maintained, but with the addition of  much-requested features such as unlimited undo/redo, the ability to use the camera directly within jit, and text-to-speech functionality.

Users can take photos using a webcam or inbuilt tablet or smartphone camera and add a range of effects. The images can then be simply uploaded into the other j2e tools, where they can be blogged, shared, embedded into text documents, assessed etc.

jit5 uses the latest technologies and therefore requires an up-to-date browser. Chrome, Internet Explorer 9 or later, Firefox or Safari are recommended. On iOS, it is best to use the free j2Launch app.
