Want to host a meeting from your iPad? There's an app for that.
We're happy to announce a significant new update to the join.me iPad app that will give you another excuse to leave your laptop at the office. Starting today, you can now use join.me to host meetings and quick, ad-hoc collaboration sessions directly from your iPad, including the ability to:
- Select and visually present files from email and other iPad apps with up to 250 people
- Open files from other productivity, business, collaboration and cloud apps in join.me for quick sharing
- Store files in the join.me iPad app for future meetings and presentations
- Invite attendees via email or link into a join.me session
- Talk to attendees via VoIP or a free, dedicated teleconference line
- Secure and control meetings via “lock” feature, requiring attendees to seek permission prior to joining a meeting in session
- Trigger a touch-based ‘laser pointer’ for highlighting areas of content being shared
- Use built-in chat feature to talk with individual or all attendees
