A long time ago in Monday Productivity Pointers, I posted a video about a fantastic remote desktop connection app called Crossloop. It was fast, it was easy, and there was absolutely nothing not to love about it. Using a desktop PC, Mac, or tablet, you could easily connect to someone else’s computer and either view it or remote control it.
A few months ago, the makers of Crossloop shut off the service. But today on Monday Productivity Pointers, I bring you a suitable alternative called join.me.
join.me works in a similar fashion to Crossloop. It’s a simple download for the end user, and there’s no user account to sign up for. You can be remote controlling a computer within seconds without messing around with firewall settings or having to follow complicated instructions.
In today’s Monday Productivity Pointers video, I’ll show you how easy it is to use join.me. It’s great for giving computer help to family members in far-away places, or even logging into your own computer when you’re away from home.
We may have lost Crossloop, but I’ll show you just how versatile the replacement is! So watch this week’s free video, and check back next week for more Monday Productivity Pointers.
