Easy Audio Conferencing and Screen-Sharing Across Desktop and Mobile with Biba

Robin Good's insight:



Biba is an audio-conferencing and screen-sharing cross-platform software that works across desktop (Mac & PC), mobile and tablet devices (iOS & Android) making it easy to manage audio conference calls with multiple users connecting while on the move.


Biba automatically calls all participants at the right time, shows you name and last name of who is joining the call, and makes it easy to mute participants that have noisy backgrounds. 


The audio quality is at 48kHz compared to the 16kHz of a traditional landline and during any call you can stat sharing any website, slide or document while all people attending, no matter on what kind of device can see what you are showing. 


Free version available.

A Decentralized Secure P2P File-Sharing, Chat and Discussion Network: RetroShare

A Decentralized Secure P2P File-Sharing, Chat and Discussion Network: RetroShare | Online Collaboration Tools | Scoop.it
...
Robin Good's insight:



RetroShare is a cross-platform, open-source, trusted and distributed P2P communication software and social sharing network.


Retroshare allows you to chat and share files of any size with your friends and family, using a web-of-trust to authenticate peers and OpenSSL to encrypt all communication.


RetroShare provides filesharing, chat, messages, forums and channels. Other key features include:

  • Serverless, completely decentralised
  • Multiple simultaneous downloads / uploads
  • Search Friends
  • Messages
  • Forums
  • Channels
  • Voice over IP
  • Instant messaging
  • Groupchat
  • GnuPG Authentication
  • OpenSSL Encryption
  • adding downloads via website links
  • Plugins support
  • UPnP / NAT-PMP port forwarding support
  • Graphical User Interface written with Qt4 toolkit
  • System tray integration


RetroShare has been inspired by the design of the Turtle algorithm:

"When designing Turtle, we were inspired by the way people living under oppressive regimes share information deemed "hostile" by their government (this can be books, newsletters, video and audio recordings, or even political jokes). Because of the potentially very serious consequences raising from being caught possessing/distributing such material, no single individual is willing to share it, except with close friends. Experience has repeatedly shown that, even in the most repressive environments, this "friends-to-friends" delivery network is remarkably effective in disseminating information, with relatively little risks for the participating parties; if one chooses his friends carefully, the chance of being caught doing the forbidden exchanges becomes very small."


Retroshare "... makes it difficult to intrude and hardly possible to monitor from an external point of view." This makes government monitoring and prosecution impossible beyond the will of Retroshare users


Free to use.

Screen-Share With Anyone Instantly with 321Meet

Screen-Share With Anyone Instantly with 321Meet | Online Collaboration Tools | Scoop.it

Robin Good: 321Meet is a new web-based service which allows anyone with a computer to easily share the screen with anyone else connected to the Internet without the need to install or download anything.

The service is very simple to use. You only need to input your name, email and preferred password and you are ready to go.

321Meet utilizes a Java-based applet which automatically loads in the background without ever requiring any installation or download on the part of the user.

In a 321Meet event the meeting host can decide at any point to share his desktop or a specific applicaton or to let any of the participants share their screen in his place. Alternatively, any of the participants can "share" his own webcam video with everyone else.


Free to use. Ad-supported.

Upcoming Plus and Pro versions will offer an ad-free experience, multiple private rooms, a branded start page, password protection, extra security and more.

Collaborative Free P2P Screen-Sharing for Macs and PCs with ScreenHero

Robin Good's insight:


ScreenHero is a downloadable app for Windows and Mac computers that allows you to collaborate one-on-one on the same app with someone else at a distance.


ScreenHero has recently added full support for Windows PCs and it now integrates a voice feature allowing you also to talk with the person you are collaborating with.


Your login credentials and session data are fully encrypted using a P2P TLS scheme (SSL based).


ScreenHero operates as a P2P app, allowing parties to hook up directly to one another, and resorting to its centralized servers only when a direct connection is not possible for some reason.


My comment: An excellent screen-sharing tool for distributed teams. If you regularly operate with someone else at a distance and you need to easily and reliably share screens to see and edit drafts, mock-ups, presentations or code, ScreenHero is a great resource.


N.B.: If you are on a PC you will need a recent version of Windows, as PCs with Vista and earlier Windows versions are not supported.


Free version available.
