    "This is a very good app for conferencing with your friends or fellow workers. You can even share documents with each other. Unfortunately, you are limited with how many people you can conference with. You are limited to ten people so it may not be good for larger meetings. You can share your screen and simply tap share and everyone at the meeting can see it. It also has free unlimited conference calling for after meeting discussions. "

    "TeamViewer allowed several coworkers and I to collaborate on a project from our own homes during a blizzard which shut down our city. Thanks to it, we were able to meet our rush deadline, and didn't disappoint any clients!"

    "Automatic Screen Sharing Mode: Mikogo automatically goes into full computer screen sharing mode for the host, which has to manually be turned off. This was a creepy shock during testing. The first time you host, be sure to turn this off so you aren’t accidentally sharing your screen with the entire meeting. Fussy Screen Sharing Mode: Not only is screen sharing mode automatically tuned on, it also hides the interface for the attendees. This makes it difficult for attendees to use Mikogo features while in screen sharing mode. No Webcam Support: Mikogo is an audio and screen-sharing app only. Without webcam support, Mikogo can’t compete as a full-fledged web conferencing service. However, for customers who never intend to use webcams, this may not be an issue"
