I'm looking for a software which allows you to simply "draw" on the screen, as if it was a giant whiteboard. It's crucial that the application i able to run in full screen mode. A Wacom tablet will be used as input device.

Any suggestion?

try Scribbles, I use it all the time with a Wacom Intuos 4. Actually, my 4 yr old son uses it, too, and when he sees me working at home, we need to paint stuff.

when switched to full screen, it also turns off the dock reappearing (if it's set to hide), only the menu bar will appear once the cursor touches the top edge of the screen.

This seems to do exactly what I need. Thank you so much. – Roberto Aloi Mar 18 '11 at 10:26
no problem :-) just be prepared that everyone you show it to will want to spend some time with it... – Florenz Kley Mar 20 '11 at 19:09

Omnidazzle allows you to scribble on the screen. It also works on the top of Keynote, where you can have an empty slide to create the "whiteboard" effect:

Whiteboard or Sketchbook Express both seem good and are free.

I've already seen those two. Unfortunately, none of them runs in full screen. – Roberto Aloi Mar 17 '11 at 18:12
Oh, that's a bit rubbish isn't it! It seems a focus of Lion is running apps full screen – perhaps they will update to add functionality once Lion is out. – Rich Bradshaw Mar 17 '11 at 19:37

Have a look to Open-Sankoré:

It allows to draw on the screen as a whiteboard, but also to import pictures (or PDF documents) and draw over their content.
