This New Screen-Sharing App Will Help You Stay Connected

This new screen-sharing app will help you stay connected

A startup based in New York called Mimicr has launched a screen-sharing app for mobile phone (currently Android only) with voice calling capability. A lot of screen-sharing apps facilitate screen-sharing between phones and computers or TVs, but very few allow for phone-to-phone screen-sharing in real time. Mimicr makes that possible.

The app operates like a regular calling app. Screen-sharing and voice calls are initiated by simply calling a contact via the Mimicr address book. As soon as the person picks up, the screen-sharing begins. It’s also quite interactive, with features like playful emojis, pause/resume (when you want to address something private), mute/unmute, and “presenter swap” functions.

While screen-sharing, users can use Mimicr to browse news or social media feeds together, catch sports highlights, flip through photo galleries, or do live presentations on the go. Personally, I think the most useful part of Mimicr might be that you can use it to get tech support from (or give it to) while traveling or separated. If I can get my dad to figure out how to download it, I’ll be able to see what’s wrong with his phone (there’s always something).

Here’s a video showing how it works:
