These apps make sharing your screen on a tablet a breeze

<p>This has turned into a tablet world. And why not? Consumers are able to use these nifty and highly mobile devices to watch movies, surf the Web, listen to online radio and send and receive e-mail messages while on the go. It&rsquo;s no wonder that tablet sales have eclipsed the sales numbers of traditional laptops. But that doesn&rsquo;t suggest that tablets are perfect. A lot of users have lamented that these devices falter when it comes to sharing screens with others. However this, too, is changing, due to several high-end screen-sharing apps for iOS now available. Miguel Leiva-Gomez, a writer with the smallbiz technology Web site, took a quick look at three of the best. Start using these apps and you&rsquo;ll soon be sharing screens easily, even on a tablet.</p> <p><strong>join.me</strong></p> <p>The join.me app is available in free and &ldquo;pro&rdquo; versions. To use this app on the iOS operating system, you&rsquo;ll need to spend about $20 a month for the &ldquo;pro&rdquo; version. But as Leiva-Gomez writes, the investment is worth it. The software allows users to share all their screens with co-workers, and it does it without having a steep learning curve. It&rsquo;s extremely easy to use. The application also includes other bonus features, like instant chat capabilities, Internet calling and file sharing.</p> <p><strong>Air Sketch</strong></p> <p>Leiva-Gomez has good things to say, too, about Air Sketch. This app lets users turn their tablets into whiteboards. Users can tap five different writing tools to maneuver these boards. They can also employ the program to open PDFs and other files. The program displays every image, report and document in real time. This, naturally, creates an environment perfectly suited to work collaboration.</p> <p><strong>Conference Pad</strong></p> <p>Though it&rsquo;s a relatively simple app, that doesn&rsquo;t mean that Conference Pad isn&rsquo;t also a powerful one. Leiva-Gomez writes that that the application is extremely promising when it comes to zooming in on documents and PDFs. As he writes, users can do this without giving up any image quality. The application also is an intuitive one, made to be easy for new users to get down.</p>
