A couple weeks ago Citrix announced you could start a GotoMeeting session from your iPad which changes the landscape for this virtual meeting software. Before you needed a PC or Mac to start the meeting and join in via tablet or smartphone.
The news is for iPad only – Android users will still have to wait (although I’m guessing it will happen very soon). Also other iOS devices can only join a meeting.Subscribe to iPad365 on YouTube iPad365 Playlist How to Host a GotoMeeting Session from iPad
Just like with the PC, you can use the iPad’s webcam. You can set the webcam to see all participants (up to 6 webcams can be enabled during a meeting), who is talking or turn off the HD faces altogether. Of course using the HD faces takes up iPad resources including battery.What You Can Share on iPad GotoMeeting
There is a limitation of what you can share. You get three options:
The iPad has functions to change presenters and administer the meeting. When it’s done you can choose to end the meeting or pass it off to someone else.
Citrix also recommends you have a stable Wi-fi connection as the iPad host. You can use 3G or 4G if needed.
