Think you can’t use your tablet to share screens with your co-workers? Think again. There are plenty of apps now available that let you share your reports, images, documents and videos with co-workers and friends. With one of these screen-sharing apps, you won’t even miss that heavier laptop. Whatever screen sharing it can do, your tablet is now able to do, too. But which screen-sharing apps for iOS should you download? Miguel Leiva-Gomez, a writer for the tech site smallbiz technology, recommends three that should handle all your screen-sharing needs.
The join.me app is available in free and “pro” versions. To use this app on the iOS operating system, you’ll need to spend about $20 a month for the “pro” version. But as Leiva-Gomez writes, the cost is worth it. The software allows users to share all their screens with co-workers, and it does it without having a steep learning curve. It’s extremely simple to use. The application also includes other bonus features, including instant chat capabilities, Internet calling and file sharing.
Air Sketch is a formidable challenger to join.me. This app is another that’s easy to use, according to Leiva-Gomez. It will also change your tablet into a surprisingly effective whiteboard that comes with five different drawing tools. You’re able to use Air Sketch to display documents, images, videos and presentations in real time, creating an elegant and simple collaborative workspace.
Conference Pad is a simple but effective screen-sharing program, one that Leiva-Gomez gives high marks. Users can open and share PDFs and documents with just a few taps. The application also offers some impressive zooming features, allowing users to zoom without sacrificing any image quality.
