SOLVING IT TOGETHER

Join Me

Often you can solve someone’s computer problem if you can just see what they’re talking about. Join.me is a free service from LogMeIn.com that lets you do that.

The latest version is compatible with Android tablets as well as computers and other devices. Type “join.me” into your web browser and when you get to the site, click “share” if you want to share your screen, or “join” if you want to see a friend’s screen. You need a unique code each time you share your screen. Your collaborator can share that with you after they install the free software.

If one of you is sharing a picture or a spreadsheet and using a touch screen tablet, you can zoom in on the details by spreading your fingers on the screen. Your screen can be shared with up to 250 people. The software works with smart phones too.
