Random thoughts from an unusual company

Sometimes Lotus Blows My Mind - In A Very Good Way

This afternoon I got a reminder invite about LotusLive and remembered that I had been meaning to try out the new LotusLive meetings app for iPhone which shipped in early May. Since I have my shiny new iPad (have I mentioned that already ??) I thought, why not use that to try that app out.

Let me tell you - this thing is a-MAY-zing when combined with the iPad.   The only way to show you is to show you so here are some screenshots

Here is the LotusLive App login / setup - I just tell it the meeting code I'm joining (i've blanked it for my own protection)

as I join the app is showing the current page from the presentation full screen

During the presentation I can tap the screen and get this

From there I can view a list of meeting attendees

Scroll through the presentation pages that have already been shown

or review a past page full screen

So now when I'm travelling I can easily attend meetings or can present myself by asking someone at the office to upload a file to a shared meeting space and use my iPad to present it.

Very very nice work Lotus.  Thank you

I don't have an iPad but tried it on an iPhone. And I can confirm: VERY nice work. Would love to see this feature in Sametime as well ...
