What can you use the app for?

Screenleap is a software that lets users instantly share their screen with others who are using a device that has a browser. It is easy to use and begins with simply clicking the Share your screen now! button. The application will begin working in the background and will verify digital signatures and also indicate she the screen is ready to be shared. A link will be provided to the person who is sharing his or her screen. This link should be passed to the other party. A pop-up will appear to indicate if the other party is viewing the shared screen. The person sharing the screen has control to share the entire screen, pause sharing or stop sharing. Also the person with control or the person sharing the screen can also decide if the only information that will be shared is information within a visible rectangle.
