SharedView – a Desktop sharing application

Hi all.

I’ve recently had a crack at using the Microsoft tool SharedView – It’s a competitor to The Citrix "GoTo" web apps and it’s free (nice).

It has some good points (It’s super easy to just share a single application, rather than an entire desktop, viewers can click on the presenters desktop to highlight areas to the presenter – good for support, it’s free) and some bad points (still not as easy as gotomeeting, with it’s 9 digit meeting ID and it’s a bit choppy… but hey, it’s free… it’s also in beta).

They seem to have "hidden" the app at the moment – it’s supposed to be a part of the "Live" suite of products, but there’s no mention of the software on Live (even in the beta section of live apps). I say, grab it while you can.

[UPDATE – 26/1/2010] – It’s now available publically – http://www.connect.microsoft.com/content/content.aspx?SiteID=94 – Thanks Jon!

I'm a SharePoint consultant. I'm also slowly going bald, seem to have a permanent spare tyre around my waist and enjoy socialising with friends over a beer or 10. The last 2 may possibly be related. Started working with SharePoint when the first version was in limited beta release (participated in the Technology Adoption Program while at Woolworths) and have been committed to the adoption of the technology as a business enabler ever since.
