Mobile Productivity Tip - WebEx Live Meetings and Webinars on iPhone PDF Print E-mail
Written by @gletham   
13 January 2010

I just love technology… and I really dig mobile technology! And so it’s always great when technology works and when you realize some great gains in productivity by taking advantage of some of the fabulous technology that’s out there. 

Case in point, I found out recently that the WebEx (think live webinar from Cisco) service now has an iPhone client.

I took part in a recent webinar from LizardTech showing off the latest in their Express product suite (including Lidar Compressor) and was treated to this app via a registration email sent to me from Webex. There I was, sitting in a coffee shop grabbing a cup and loading the PC client from WebEx when the app failed and wouldn’t load for me (perhaps I missed something but I looked around and couldn’t troubleshoot the problem). Luckily a link to the WebEx iPhone app was provided.

So, I simply forwarded the email with the link to my gmail account (accessible via my iPhone mail client), installed the application, and logged into my webinar… right on time. The application serves up a slide show, complete with list of attendees and ability to chat (an option to review slides would be good). The app then called me and I listened to the audio portion via phone call streamed to my headphones so i wouldn’t disturb anyone inn the coffee shop - great stuff!

So now there’s no excuse for missing out on webinars and other live events.. amazing! I also couldn’t help think how valuable this could be for executives that travel frequently or even for professionals working in the field. Imagine a live meeting any time any place… all you need is an iPhone (in this case) and a mobile with data connectivity - just think of the possibilities! Imagine your team in remote locations. In the meeting I attended the Lizardtech team was accessing the New Jersey orthophoto server, pulling live data feeds, and sharing over the web via Webex technology.. i was viewing the data live on my iPhone… now that’s cool!

So now there’s no excuse for missing out on the next live webinar! Imagine yourself taking in a Live webinar, conference call, or even a live office meeting anytime anyplace.. at the airport, in the field, or ?? FYI, check out the LizardTech webinar schedule here and test this out for yourself!
