Float Turns the iPad Into a Collaborative Web Browsing Tool with Launch of RabbleBrowser 2.0
Float Mobile Learning announced today the release of RabbleBrowser™ 2.0, a collaborative Web browsing tool for the Apple iPad.
Building on the success of RabbleBrowser™ 1.0, Float has made dramatic changes to improve and enhance the usability and effectivity of the RabbleBrowser™ app with version 2.0. In addition to letting users print and share images, documents, multimedia and bookmarks directly from the iPad, the 2.0 version of the app now lets users share files using Dropbox.
Unlike basic presentation apps, RabbleBrowser™ enables a facilitator to guide an unlimited number of people through a Web browsing session or demonstration on iPads connected through a shared Wi-Fi or Bluetooth network. The app also uses both devices’ bandwidth for a faster browsing experience. Social media tools are integrated so anyone in the session can share URLs to the Web via email, Facebook and Twitter.
Participants can also collaborate using RabbleBrowser™ group and/or private chat, as well as bookmark editing and sharing. Facilitators have the option to configure VGA output to project their screen for presentation settings.
“RabbleBrowser 2.0 is the ultimate collaboration tool for classrooms, meetings, trade shows, presentations and just about any group environment you can think of,” said Float Managing Director Chad Udell.
“For the first time ever, you have a group presentation tool combined with a shared Web browsing tool for an even more powerful collaborative experience. On top of that, the added functionality and integration with features like Dropbox provide an ideal setup for when you need to work with or present to those around you.”
