The tool is very lightweight and easy to configure. Just sign up for an account, download the Mikogo client, and you can immediately begin sharing your screen to your associates. This is great for online presentations, tutorials and cross platform troubleshooting.

The software is not perfect and there are some usability issues that I’ve encountered. Some parts of the interface could use some improvements but they’re just to my preference and nothing too major. The important thing is that it works, it’s lightweight, useful and free.
