Meet.fm and the concept of “online meeting channels” were created by YouDazzle to develop a more elegant and seamless way of meeting on the go. Meet.fm enables anyone with a computer or mobile device to share presentations, websites, web applications and files with no downloads. Unlike screen sharing services like WebEx and GoToMeeting, Meet.fm allows users to host as well as attend web meetings on mobile devices, including the iPad, iPhone, and Android.

With Meet.fm, frictionless real-time sharing is finally possible. Simple, interactive co-browsing from Meet.fm enables more effective sales meetings, customer service communications and training sessions through real-time sharing of websites and online applications. No clunky software or downloads, just enter a URL and you are sharing in no time from any device.

Meet.fm provides drag and drop file presentation capabilities and seamless integration with cloud file services, including Box.net, Dropbox, Evernote and Google Drive, making it easy for participants to easily share files from their desktops, tablets and mobile devices ‘live’ on their own branded Meet.fm channel.
