Meetings with clients and co-workers are sometimes best conducted from afar, and there are plenty of mobile apps out there to help you keep your distance. Our favorite is GoToMeeting, published by Citrix Online. It’s not perfect, but we think it’s one of the best conferencing apps around. (iOS, Android free)
Everything’s configured to capture the thrill of being there in person — HD video, audio and an onscreen whiteboard and highlighter.
For iOS several of the features, including HD video and the onscreen whiteboard, are iPad-only.
You don’t need a GoToMeeting account to join meetings, a handy feature for new team members. Invites go out via text or email.
Some users have had trouble scheduling meetings through the app; others have said service is spotty.
It doesn’t take much to get used to the interface – dialing in is as easy as making a call.
The GoToMeeting mobile app is free to download, but the Web service costs $49/month or $468.00/year.
