Share Article

ShowMyPC, a maker of web meeting and screen sharing software has released a new addition to its suite of free desktop sharing software services. It's called 'application sharing' and 'file transfer' and is currently available only from some leading vendors like webex; but for a steep price. This is excellent news for small businesses, students, graphics designers, sales and marketing, road warriors and remote support companies who need the service but don't want to pay the steep price. The service is based on open softwares like vnc and openssh.

Good news for anyone who needs to conduct web meetings but finds the price too steep for advanced features that some of the leading vendors charge. ShowMyPC, a collaboration software maker recently added free application sharing and file transfer features to its suite of desktop sharing software services.

The ShowMyPC software not only lets users share their desktop screen with other users but also provides an option to share only a particular application. So far, the application sharing feature was provided only by big web meeting vendors such as webex, but for a steep price. However, ShowMyPC's recent release has made this exclusive feature available to the general public for free.

Once a user downloads their "no installation" program, they just press the "options" button before starting a meeting and can start sharing an application with other users.

In addition, there is a 'file transfer' feature that lets users transfer files between the two computers while sharing their application or screen. This is very handy for anyone who needs to support remote users using screen sharing and transfer files at the same time to the remote computer.

The best part is that unlike other products in the market from gotomypc.com and webex.com this service does not require elaborate and time consuming web registration or setup process. One click is all that is required to start using the service. The software can be downloaded from their web site showmypc.com.
