Ratings and Reviews
There is no audio on this App
I called support and they confirmed that there is no VIOP audio, I guess you need a call in number to participate in the meeting. Unless you only want to see the screen sharing.
Nice but needs voice support
The collaboration is nice, but it really needs support for voice conferencing like the of software has
This app does just what I expected it to. Make sure you know that you need to have a meeting to join or have access to a Bridgit service to create a meeting. I cannot wait to try this is a classroom. I'll give an update once I do. I can see how this will be very powerful addition to the already great Bridgit Collaboration software.
The only thing that it does that I don't like is it loses the connection when changing apps. Fast switching without losing the connection would be nice, so I could switch to my email really quick and then come back without having to rejoin the meeting. It does find the server very quickly when I open the app so it's not THAT big of a deal.
Great job! Very excited about how this will help my conference calls and in the classroom.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
