MetaMoJi targets iPad users with collaborative whiteboard app
MetaMoJi is rolling out Share Anytime: a collaborative whiteboard application optimized for Apple's iPad.
Share Anytime enables dozens of virtual meeting participants to interact in real time regardless of location. Users may brainstorm ideas, write notes, sketch concepts and aggregate documents. Flexible role management features allow team managers to "pass the chair" to colleagues without interrupting a session and participants located in different time zones may check in to a team editing session whenever their schedule permits.
Share Anytime aggregates data from multiple sources. Team managers can import Excel spreadsheets, add Word and PDF documents and bring in PowerPoint presentations. When a session is complete, the entire document can be saved as a new work product--either in PDF or in MetaMoJi's Share Note format--and distributed via email, Twitter or Facebook.
Each Share Anytime session supports up to 100 live presenters and dozens more active participants. The app also integrates a chat bar feature making it possible for any participant to contribute to the discussion without interrupting the meeting presenter.
The free version of the Share Anytime app allows the user to attend limitless numbers of virtual meetings, as well as create and own up to 10 meetings--or 1 GB of data transfer. The premium version, offered at an introductory price of $1.99 per month--discounted from $7.99 per month--supports limitless meetings adds features like MetaMoJi's mazec handwriting recognition plug-in and a conversion engine that automatically translates handwritten text to type text.
While Share Anytime will initially target the iPad, MetaMoJi plans to expand the application to the Android and Windows Phone platforms later this year, following the template established by the firm's Note Anytime note-taking and PDF annotation app.
