Twiddla – free no registration online meeting playground

Twiddla. A free online collaboration tool which has a number of very nice features. One it’s free. Did we mention that? Two, it’s got a no-brainer interface which makes it really easy to set up and run a group collaboration. You can set meetings up as private or public, and there are a bunch of useful tools available, including annotation icons and shapes.

Basically it’s a great product for whiteboarding or testing out website designs with teams of remote people, without having to deal with a clunky or complex interface. And three, text chat comes as default, but there’s also a voice chat button which links directly to the Java based Phonefromhere voice conferencing service. Nice feature.

Unfortunately it’s very much an early beta work, and this translates into a v.e.r.y sluggish feel, at least when I used it. It can take ages for a mouse click to translate into action, and some actions take literally more than a minute to manifest. It may be my browser (Firefox) or some peculiarity of my set up (i.e. Firefox plugins clash), but I found it a bit frustrating.

But it’s definitely got great potential as an application, no question, and one that I can see lots of people using once the kinks are ironed out. And the coolest thing about the app is the team behind it, Expat Software. Nice!

 Mark up websites, graphics, and photos, or start brainstorming on a blank canvas. Browse the web with your friends or make that conference call more productive than ever. No plug-ins, downloads, or firewall voodoo – it’s all here, ready to go when you are. Browser-agnostic, user-friendly, mom-approved. Oh yeah, it does one-click audio chats too.
