GoToMeeting

Back when the Motorola Droid 3 launched, one of the pre-loaded applications on the device was Citrix GoToMeeting along with Citrix Receiver. Now, Citrix has released the app to more Android devices in addition to their announcement of it also being pre-loaded on the upcoming Droid Bionic. (Just as it did on the Droid 3.)

These days, more people are leaving the confines of their offices and handling business on the go from their mobile devices. Citrix GoToMeeting allows you to attend those important meetings no matter where you are.

  • Quick session entry: Join meetings in seconds by clicking a link in an email or clicking the GoToMeeting icon and entering the meeting ID.
  • VoIP integrated audio: Quickly connect to audio through the Internet using the built-in mic and speakers.
  • Audio controls: Mute yourself to eliminate background noise while on the go.
  • Zoom in on meeting content: Zoom meeting content up to 200% by pinching the screen.
  • Portrait or landscape view: Flip your Android device to adjust your view of meeting content.
  • See who’s attending: View a list of meeting attendees.

The app is available now in the Android Market as a free download. You'll find the full press release and download link past the break should you need more info.

This is great. Just tested it on a Motorola Photon. Sure the screen is small and this won't work well for an interactive session, but just to attend a meeting quickly and see what is going on, this is a great option. Thanks!

I'm still waiting for Go To My PC. They haven't even come out with it for Rim yet. I am an original user-over 10 years and I'm still waiting to use this on my phone.
