GotoMeeting for iPad

A couple weeks ago Citrix announced you could start a GotoMeeting session from your iPad which changes the landscape for this virtual meeting software. Before you needed a PC or Mac to start the meeting and join in via tablet or smartphone.

The news is for iPad only – Android users will still have to wait (although I’m guessing it will happen very soon). Also other iOS devices can only join a meeting.

  1. Download the GotoMeeting iOS app on your iPad
  2. Launch the app
  3. Choose “Host a Meeting”
  4. Log-in using your credentials
  5. Create a meeting or choose from any meeting you’ve previously set up.
GotoMeeting with HD Faces

Just like with the PC, you can use the iPad’s webcam. You can set the webcam to see all participants (up to 6 webcams can be enabled during a meeting), who is talking or turn off the HD faces altogether. Of course using the HD faces takes up iPad resources including battery.

What You Can Share on iPad GotoMeeting

There is a limitation of what you can share. You get three options:

  • Whiteboard
  • Share a webpage
  • Share an item from Dropbox or Sharefile (also by Citrix).

The iPad has functions to change presenters and administer the meeting. When it’s done you can choose to end the meeting or pass it off to someone else.

Citrix also recommends you have a stable Wi-fi connection as the iPad host. You can use 3G or 4G if needed.
