Ahh, another day, another useful application with a nonsensical name. If you’re a visual learner like me, if you want to learn how to do something, you want to see how it’s done. In the realm of computers, this often means screen sharing. Enter Mikogo, a free-to-use, downloadable application for sharing your screen between up to ten people.

Mikogo’s interface is intuitive, works for both Mac and Windows machines, and best of all, it allows you to record the session for later viewing. The only real drawback I see is that there is no microphone support, so if you want to talk during the screen sharing, you’ll either need to have conduct a conference call, or rely on a separate piece of communication software such as Skype. That said, if you’re looking for a simple-to-use screen sharing application, Mikogo could be exactly the answer.
