Idroo combines Skype calls with free online collaboration [Daily Freeware]


We’re all learning more every day about how to collaborate online. From file sharing tools like Dropbox to full blown collaboration software like Google Docs, we’re becoming a sharing, caring networked world. The point is, that’s what networks are for, and the Internet is after all just one giant collection of computers, right?

Idroo is a online collaboration tool with a difference, in that it integrates with Skype as an application. This means that 10 or more of you can log on simultaneously, voice chat and write or draw clever stuff on the online screen to share as a group. There’s other apps out there like TeamViewer which give you screen sharing, but the combination of easy voice chat and sharing is a neat feature here.

The software if free for personal and home use, but you’ll need to pay a fee for commercial or educational use.
