Good News for Android, iPhone, and iPad Users! 
If you are using ShowMyPC for your meetings or accessing your remote PC, you can now enjoy the convenience of working away from your home or business office. With us, you are always connected to your PC because of our system’s compatibility with mobile devices, including the iPad, iPhone, or Android phone.

Don’t Miss Important Online Meetings!

You can rely on our HTML viewer technology so you don’t miss important online meetings. For example, if you must log on to an online meeting, use your iPad from wherever you are telecommuting. That’s the beauty of virtual communications.

Pull up your mobile device’s standard browser, go to your ShowMyPC domain, and select the “Open HTML Viewer” option. The Html Viewer can be accessed from the Options menu in your meetings home page, or when joining the meeting via the meeting invite link, as well as from your service website.





What you will see is a convenient way to open up the browser and log into your virtual meeting, just like you would at home or at work. Your mobile device’s audio and video features assist in viewing the meeting.

Our convenient HTML viewer also helps online teachers and students stay in touch with events and course postings in the virtual classroom environment without having to be tied to a computer. For example, if your professor wants you to attend her class every week at the same time, use the HTML viewer on your iPhone or Android phone to log into class. This could be very helpful if you are multi-tasking and working in college, don’t have time to stop at home and log on using your laptop or PC, but are really committed to your coursework.

Some people prefer to participate in meetings, take a training course online, and attend other business, education, and social events through their mobile device. Using ShowMyPC’s compatibility with the iPad, iPhone, and Android phones, there are so many ways to stay connected. You just have to try the HTML viewer for yourself!

Schedule an Online Meeting - It's Easy! 
One of the things that you want to be able to do with the ShowMyPC service is scheduling business and personal meetings, such as video conferences on the web. With our remote server service, there are so many possibilities for making connections with business contacts through virtual meetings, and the best part is, there are just a few easy steps.

For example, you might want to schedule an online chat with one of the employees who telecommutes to your small business. Or, you might want to set up an online meeting with a prospective freelance contractor who can really support your business by taking over some of the workload.

All you need to do is use your PC or mobile device. Go to your ShowMyPC domain and launch the application, then go to Options to schedule your meeting. If you want to use one of your business contacts saved in the Microsoft Outlook address book, you might want to use the “Schedule Meeting (MS Outlook)” option.


Another easy way is to start is at the main screen, where you will select Options->Schedule a Meeting.

Its as simple as that! Stay tuned to our blog for more updates on our easy-to-use features in order to maximize the use of your subscription!

Benefits of Adding Servers = Scalability 
Let’s discuss why ShowMyPC’s private hosting plans are perfect for an individual, small business, or organization seeking the benefits of scalability.

The scalability of a private server benefits the small business or organization more than you might think. The private servers are completely flexible and enable businesses to keep traffic within their own network. You can set up the account easily using your PayPal account or credit card as needed. Later on, it’s easy to add more servers when your business growth demands it. And we have support personnel ready to assist with your technical needs.

You are encouraged to inquire about additional custom options to tailor the service to your organization's unique requirements. ShowMyPC offers fully functional trial software with your servers.

The private server can be hosted on various operating systems- see specific system requirements here. Once you have a server with a public host name or IP address, you can easily set up the ShowMyPC service in under 7 minutes, and the price begins at the base of $220 (one-time).

Cleaning Up the Computer Screen for Virtual Presentations 
Once you have gotten the hang of making presentations for training or collaborative purposes on your PC, you should consider your comfort level with preparing to communicate effectively with a virtual, professional audience. However, now there are new practical considerations to bear in mind as you continue planning new virtual presentations for your audience, perhaps even for daily or weekly meetings.

Think about how to clean up the computer screen, for example, prior to your next presentation so that what you present will be better suited to the audience. One idea is to make an appointment one half hour before your meeting on your e-calendar. In this time period, you can critically evaluate the content that you intend to share.

Take a step back from your computer and think about what your audience will view through ShowMyPC technology. Does what you have arranged on the screen make sense? Or should you learn how to be a more adept editor of your visual content display?

For example, you might be able to remove graphics that make the screen too busy. You might catch spelling errors in text that you have included in a presentation. You might decide to throw out items altogether that really do not fit your agenda for the meeting.

Above all, remember that it is a professional courtesy as the virtual meeting facilitator to take time to weed out ineffective visual elements so that your audience will derive maximum benefits from viewing your computer screen.
