Time to eliminate the hassle of sharing your screen on a tablet

Think you can’t use your tablet computer to share screens with your co-workers? Think again. There are several apps available right now than enable you to 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 computer. Whatever screen sharing it can do, your tablet can now 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 of 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 investment is worth it. The application allows users to share all their screens with co-workers, and it does it without a steep learning curve. It’s extremely simple to use. The program also includes other bonus features, including instant chat capabilities, Internet calling and file sharing.

Air Sketch

Air Sketch is really a formidable challenger to join.me. This app is another that’s easy to use, according to Leiva-Gomez. It will also transform 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 a stylish and simple collaborative workspace.

Conference Pad

Conference Pad is a simple but effective screen-sharing program, one that Leiva-Gomez gives high marks. Users can open and present PDFs and documents with simply a few taps. The app also offers some awesome zooming features, allowing users to zoom without having to sacrifice any image quality.
