If I had to name one collaboration application that I to use on an almost daily basis, with the exception of Google Docs, my answer would be Cisco’s WebEx. A lot of companies make pitches to me using WebEx. Despite its patchy performance on the Mac, it is still an easy way to get through a PowerPoint. Well, WebEx just got better, thanks to the new WebEx for the iPhone app. It also works on the iPod Touch.

In other words, you don’t need to be in the office to get going — you can totally do meetings from anywhere — as long as AT&T’s temperamental 3G network is working. Your WebEx system needs to be iPhone compatible at the back end, though, and for now you can view the presentations but not start them from your iPhone. I think that, despite all the reservations about iPhone in the enterprise, apps such as WebEx for iPhone indicate that it will find footing inside corporations.

To find out more, check out the FAQ and download the app from the iTunes apps store. Let me know what you think about the application.

  1. Webex etc are all useful apps on a mobile platform and especially iPhone. The Network is now the problem.

  3. Please, please don’t call it an iTouch. It’s not an iTouch, it’s an iPod Touch. There’s no such thing as an iTouch.

    1. Yes I have, but I think Tokbox is a joke. SlideShare is doing some interesting things.
