I regularly try new services where I am looking for more frictionless “adhoc” or on-demand meetings (gotomeeting has delays installing client software and launching the viewer for the participants), multi-meeting managers services (one master account, multiple authorized meeting managers), and overall lower costs. Things that are must haves: low cost, 100% reliable operation, high fidelity screen sharing and audio.
I recently tried “http://join.me” and would not recommend it. My experiences:
- The audio bridge quality is absolutely horrible – echo, and poor quality sound.
- The screen sharing response is very laggy for the conference participants and can be pixellated.
At best, the join.me service may be suitable as a free service for internal team use perhaps but certainly not as a paid service, and certainly not for use for a customer presentation or demo.
