For a long time, the laptop has been the pinnacle of productivity, enabling people like you and I to communicate and share in the beautiful experience of the information superhighway. After the introduction of the tablet, the laptop has slowly been gaining the reputation of being impractical to carry around. However, there were still some very strong reasons why one would still want to lug around one of these devices. For one, you can’t share your screen so elegantly on a tablet as you would on a laptop, right? Wrong!
Let’s have a look at three of the most revolutionary screen-sharing apps for iOS!
- join.me – This web service offers collaborative screen sharing for all sorts of platforms. With the free version, you get to share your screen and files to up to 250 viewers. To use the iOS app, however, you must get the “pro” version, which costs slightly under $20 a month. The cost is cut nearly in half if you pay an annual sum. Aside from the big perks, you also get internet calling, file sharing, and instant chat. The platform is easy to use and elegant. It’s a good app for people who don’t want bloated learning curves.
- Air Sketch – This nifty little app will turn your tablet in to a fully-functional whiteboard with many different features such as multiple pages. You can set the background of the board to something from your image library, use any of five different drawing tools, and open PDFs, all within an environment that shows actions as they take place in real time. This kind of collaborative user-friendly whiteboard app will turn your meetings into the mediums for the exchange of creative ideas!
- Conference Pad - If you’re looking for something with a couple of modest features that gives you clarity and lets you just present a PDF with a couple of taps on the screen, you need not look any further than Conference Pad. This app prides itself with how it handles zooming, allowing you to zoom into aspects of your presentation without sacrificing image quality. Besides that, it’s a run-of-the-mill presentation app that serves its purpose with near perfection.
Now that you’ve got three new toys to tinker with, I’m just wondering why you’re still reading this. Get out there and test them out! Make sure you try stretching each app to its limits to get a grip on what it can really handle. Happy conferencing!
