Create sessions or join existing ones
Each session is assigned a unique code, that the initiator can share with friends and invite them to join the conversation and desktop sharing. You can join an existing session by entering your user name and the session code.
Alternatively, if you wish to start a new session, you need to create an account and sign in. If you do not have an account you can easily sign up, right from the application or online, on the Slingshot website.
Multi-functional communication tool
Slingshot enables you to communicate with your friends by multiple online means. You can use the integrated live chat function, share desktop contents and monitor your friends’ activity or even start a live video conversation, using the web cam.
You can view a list of all the guests connected to the Slingshot session in the Lobby menu, along with a mark of those who are currently sharing their desktop. Moreover, you can easily share any
file, by dragging and dropping it in the designated area, so that all guests can open or save them onto their own computers.
Sharing desktops or applications
Slingshot enables you to share your desktop, but you can also share one application, or a mobile device screen. Thus, you can, for instance instruct a friend on how to use a certain program or give them a live tutorial.
The ability to also communicate by microphone, web cam or live chat makes Slingshot an effective learning tool, as well as a means for conversation and entertainment. The sessions are private and secured, so you can be sure the information you are sharing is not intercepted by unknown users.
Slingshot is a multi-functional communication tool that enables you to share the activity on your screen, chat using the live messenger, the microphone or the web cam. You can share your desktop while watching a movie, browsing through photos or working on a project and let your friends join in.
