Tuesday, April 27 2010

Rumors have been swirling about the latest iPhone 4G applications and Apple lovers have eagerly awaited news of the video-conferencing features that they may soon hold in the palms of their hands. Now, the wait is over.

AT&T has announced it will release a new Road Warrior application that allows one-click conferencing via iPhone. The AT&T Connect Mobile conferencing App is now available on the App store. It integrates many conferencing products - including audio conferencing, web conferencing and video conferencing - into a single communication application.

Sound good? There's more. The application has simple "Call Me" and "Dial In" features that make it easy to conference with multiple parties. Users can also see an interactive participant list to keep track of who's in on a web conference.

iPhone users can use notes to chat with one or some participants. Plus, younger users might be happy to learn they can video conference with friends and use emotions to signal opinions - sometimes a smiley face says it all.

Video conferencing software is gaining popularity in businesses around the world because it's cost-effective, quick and personable. Thanks to AT&T's new app, iPhone users will have web conferencing solutions at their fingertips - in or out of the office.
