I don’t showcase alot of web applications, but this one is different. Web conferencing is necessary for a lot of businesses. From sales, to web design, and more – any job where you work with a team over a long distance needs web conferencing these days.
Mac support in this area is a bit limited, and most services cost a monthly fee, or per session fee…but Yugma is different.
Yugma (pronounced “yoog-ma”; Sanskrit word meaning “together”) is a free next generation real-time web conferencing and desktop sharing service for Mac and Windows (with Linux coming soon). I asked a friend to help me test it out, and we were both using the program in a few minutes (including sign up time).
The program automatically generates a Conference call Phone Number as well as a Session ID number so that up to 10 others can join in (in the free version. The pay version allows more connections).
As you can see from the screenshots (click for a larger image), I could easily see my friend’s desktop (as he visited the fine Bloggy Network site, ForeverGeek.com), and switching Presenters was quick and easy.
All in all, I was very, very impressed with Yugma. If you need to do any web conferenceing, either with your clients, or with your co-workers, this is a great free web based solution.
