You can easily share your screen with iOS

May 3, 2013
Tablets come with a number of advantages: They’re incredibly portable. Their screens are sharp. And they allow us to send and receive e-mail messages, scan the Web and watch movies whether we’re sitting on a train or huddled in our favorite public library. Yet they’re not perfect. For one thing, sharing your screen with a tablet is a hassle, right? Maybe not. Miguel Leiva-Gomez, a writer for the smallbiz technology Web site, says that a variety of new apps make it easier than ever for tablet owners to share screens with other people.

The 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 investment is worth it. The program allows users to share all their screens with co-workers, and it does it without a steep learning curve. It’s exceedingly simple to operate. The program also includes other bonus features, like instant chat capabilities, Internet calling and file sharing.


Air Sketch

Leiva-Gomez has positive things to say, too, about Air Sketch. This app lets users turn their tablets into whiteboards. Users can tap five different writing tools to maneuver these boards. They can also use the program to open up PDFs and other files. The application displays every image, report and document in real time. This, naturally, creates an environment perfectly suited to work collaboration.


Conference Pad

The Conference Pad completes Leiva-Gomez’s screen-sharing all-stars, and with good reason. It is a no-frills screen-sharing app, but it’s also a powerful one. The application is especially impressive when it comes to zoom. Users can zoom into any area of their documents or images without sacrificing an iota of image quality. And just like the other screen-sharing apps that Leiva-Gomez highlights, it’s an easy one to grasp and make use of, which means that tablet owners will be sharing their screens in no time.
