WebEx

WebEx

In addition to utilizing Citrix's GoToMeeting software and the iPad app, similar functionality is provided by Cisco Systems, via its popular WebEx virtual meeting software solution (http://www.webex.com).

For businesses, consultants, or entrepreneurs who already use WebEx to host meetings, the company offers a free iPhone and separate iPad app, allowing people to attend virtual meetings from their Apple mobile device, and connect via Wi-Fi or through AT&T's wireless 3G network.

To schedule and host a meeting using Cisco's WebEx, the host must be using the WebEx software from a Mac or PC, and be a paid subscriber to the service.

Pricing starts at $49.00 per month to host an unlimited number of meetings attended by up to 25 people, and a free 14-day trial is available.

Attending meetings, however, is free and does not require a WebEx membership (but the free WebEx software for the PC, Mac, iPhone, or iPad is required).

To view a demo of WebEx for iPhone, visit http://m.webex.com, or to download the free iPhone app from the App Store, visit http://itunes.apple.com/app/cisco-webex-meeting-center/id298844386.

The free and more feature-packed WebEx for iPad app can also be downloaded for free from the App Store (http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/cisco-webex-meeting-center/id364031971).
