Sharing screens on a tablet no longer a hassle

Business Technology | May 1, 2013

Tablets have a lot of advantages: They’re very 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 number of new apps make it less difficult than ever before for tablet owners to share screens with other people.


Leiva-Gomez has high praise for join.me, a Web service that provides collaborative screen sharing for a variety of platforms. To make use of the iOS app, though, users will have to pay up for the program’s “pro” version, one that carries a fee of just under $20 a month. The application comes with file-sharing, instant chat and Internet calling. Leiva-Gomez describes this package as one that will satisfy the needs of just about any user.

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 employ the application to open up PDFs and other files. The program displays every image, report and document in real time. This, of course, creates an environment perfectly suited to work collaboration.

Conference Pad

The Conference Pad rounds out Leiva-Gomez’s screen-sharing all-stars, and with good reason. It is a no-frills screen-sharing app, but it’s also a solid one. The app is particularly 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 a simple one to grasp and make use of, which means that tablet owners will be sharing their screens almost immediately.
