Join GoToMeeting from your Android phone

Finally you can join a GoToMeeting session from your Android phone, and it’s ALMOST perfect…

It’s loads fine on my MyTouch 4G and supposedly comes pre-loaded on the Motorola BIONIC.

To join a meeting you can either open the app and type in the meeting number or click on a link someone sent you and the app will launch automatically.

Simple.

The audio quality is very good. To see the screen properly, you can pinch and shrink or enlarge. The screen quality is excellent in my opinion, but it is a bit challenging to follow along with the screen. That isn’t Citrix’s fault, but a limitation with a 3.7 inch screen.

Don’t bother trying to join a GoToWebinar meeting from the GoToMeeting app. It won’t work. Personally, I’m hoping the GoToWebinar app for Android is right around the corner, since that would add a huge amount of flexibility. Lot’s more people like me could attend more Webinars, since I always have my phone with me but am often not sitting at the computer.

As for the people who complain about GoToMeeting being too expensive, the should try to get one of the cheaper or free solutions to work reliably behind corporate firewalls.

If you have nothing but time on your hands and time isn’t money to you,  then be my guest to try to get Skype to work. My experiments with Skype have not gone very smoothly.

I’m very happy that Citrix has finally come out with the app for Android that has been available for the iPhone for some time. It’s long overdue.

The only issue I have with the app is that I can’t see the cursor. I send a Tweet to @GoToMeeting back on the 19th, for which I received no response. I was kind of surprised they didn’t answer.

The cursor issue doesn’t seem to be bothering anyone else. If it happens to you leave a comment below. Maybe it’s only a MyTouch 4G thing.

If you want to read why I love GoToMeeting, you can read my review here.

Be sure to leave a comment below and let me know what you think of the GoToMeeting app for Android.

Renew your Wishlist Member subscription if you get this error

Today I was updating one of my Wishlist Member sites and received this error:

PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT (-10) : Unable to find End of Central Dir Record signature

Most everything I found in Google was related to a disk space issue — which I didn’t have.

Finally I figured out that my Wishlist Member subscription had expired. As soon as I renewed my subscription and retried to upgrade to the latest WLM version, it succeeded without a hitch.

I highly recommend Wishlist Member, but I wish they would have notified me that my subscription had expired….
