Slingshot iOS, Mac, Windows and Android

AirSquirrels, creator of popular apps AirParrot and Reflector, on Thursday launched an interesting new application that works on a variety of platforms and lets users share their app screens, but also other documents and files, with others. Called Slingshot, the app will make it very easy for iPhone and iPad users to share apps and documents with iOS, Mac, Windows and Android users.

“Share screens, documents and video streams from anywhere there’s a wireless connection,” the company wrote on its website. “Slingshot provides mobile access for users with iOS or Android devices, and it works on both Windows and Mac. Host and join from any device, and present your screen even when you’re on the go. Slingshot takes teamwork and collaboration to the next level, bringing together the devices we use every day.”

The app can be used simply to share screens or documents, but also for teaching or demo purposes. Slingshot sessions also support note-taking and HD video chat. Users will also be able to mirror a specific application, in order to demo it to an audience in a training session for example, while using a different app on their devices at the same time.

Slingshot comes with a 30-day free trial period, after which it requires a subscription to work. Pricing starts at $9.99 per month and goes all the way up to $99.99 per month, depending on how many users need to be supported for Slingshot sessions.

A video explaining how app, screen and document sharing works follows below.
