yugma.jpgI 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).

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.
