Collaborating just got a whole to lot simpler, thanks to Join.me – a browser based screen-sharing tool from the development team who made LogMeIn. There’s no sign up required for the simple free sharing service, which involves downloading a tiny temporary application & then giving the 9 digit code it generates to anyone who you want to be able to see your screen up to a maximum of 250 viewers.
The free service even allows you to hand over control of your desktop, or have a text conversation and send files to anyone logged in as a viewer. This could be a great way to work on a creative project with distant colleagues, or get tech support from your nephew who’s an absolute whizz with computers. And if all that isn’t enough, there are free viewer apps for iPhone, iPad & Android – so now no-one has an excuse not to join in.
