Screenleap is a web app that lets users share their device's screen over the Internet. These screens can be a desktop computer monitor or a smartphone screen or anything else that can load a web browser. Users must first download and run and small executable, but there is no need to sign up or register. Similar to services from TeamViewer, LogMeIn, Join.me, GoToMyPC and Google, Screenleap has multiple tiers, including a free one that allows for one hour of screen sharing per day and up to 8 concurrent viewers. There are three paid tiers, with the highest offering unlimited screen sharing, up to 150 concurrent viewers, audio conferencing, meeting scheduling, screen recording and customization. There is also an API for integrating screen sharing on your own website, and a premium branded service. Finally, the company offers Screenleap for Support, which lets tech companies view the screen of their users so that they can better provide technical support.

Many companies offer services that let you share your desktop or mobile device with others on the Internet, but none of these other services are simpler to use than Screenleap. Once you have installed their software in your web browser, you can share any screen with a single click. Screenleap also offers a wide range of useful auxiliary services, such as as audio conferencing and meeting scheduling and screen recording. They further have a web API, and the ability to provide the service within applications, for purpose of providing technical support. Best of all, the service is completely free of charge if you want to share a screen with a handful of colleagues as a one time thing. Screenleap, though, is not without some flaws. If you want to use the service more than an hour a day (or have more than 8 people view your screen), you will have to pay a monthly fee, and it can get relatively expensive. You will also have to pay if you want to use their advanced services such as audio conferencing and meeting scheduling. Also, there is no support for things such as annotations, zooming and chat.
