Adobe has launched a new version of its web conferencing software, and part of the package is support for mobile devices. Adobe Connect 8 works with mobile apps for Google Android and iOS, allowing participants to download and install the free apps to join in a web conference.
Adobe Connect is normally a browser-based solution that relies on Adobe Flash, but the iPhone and many Android devices don’t include support for Flash. The apps are designed to let mobile users participate anyway.
The mobile apps include VoIP audio, as well as support for viewing video from webcams. Users can also join text chats form their phones and view presentations, PDFs, videos, or shared screens on their devices.
While the mobile apps are free, Adobe Connect is not. Users can pay a monthly fee or sign up for a pay-per-use plan to use the web conferencing service.
