[prMac.com] North Canton, Ohio - Squirrels LLC is launching Slingshot, an application allowing iOS screen sharing to anywhere in the world. Slingshot is a service-based application that allows users to connect with others and share their device screen, files and ideas with others. The service is set to launch on May 1, 2014.
"Slingshot is revolutionary," Squirrels president David Stanfill said. "We really think it's going to change the online meeting and collaboration game. Sharing is no longer limited to the same room or building. It can happen from anywhere."
Slingshot will allow users to share their iPad(R), iPhone(R) and iPod(R) screens to anyone else in a Slingshot session. Mac(R) and PC screens can also be shared and viewed by anyone in a session.
"Slingshot users can mirror their phone screen to a computer or even another user on a phone," Stanfill said. "We designed Slingshot to work with the most common phones, tablets and computers."
While the service highlights mobile screen sharing, it includes online collaboration and meeting tools, too. Meeting Minutes allows anyone in a session to take collaborative notes in real time, and instant file sharing shares files with everyone in a session regardless of the device they're using. Video, audio and text chat are available across all devices, too.
"We wanted to create a solution for people who need to collaborate and share from their phones and tablets," Squirrels co-founder Andrew Gould said. "Slingshot is the first service to allow screen sharing to anywhere in the world. We want all of our users to experience Slingshot at full potential. The trial does that by allowing group collaboration and sharing."
Pricing and Availability:
Multiple monthly plan subscriptions are available but users can first try Slingshot free for 30 days. The individual plan allows one-on-one collaboration and screen sharing for $9.99 USD. Other plans are available that allow more users, more webcam feeds, dial-in access and more concurrent sessions. Special pricing and plans are available for corporations and larger groups with unique needs.
