Highly effective and free of idiosyncrasies — the best in screenshare apps

What do you like best?

I absolutely love Screenhero. The two way sharing, mapping of shortcuts like copy and paste, visual fidelity, audio quality, and low CPU usage are all industry leading. It successfully avoids the uncanny valley that most screensharing tools fall into while also avoiding a complicated setup.

What do you dislike?

Screenhero is no longer available for download without an invitation as part of their acquisition by Slack.

If you start screenhero, then plug in your mic, Screenhero won't detect it. This can be confusing because input and output devices are independent (you can use your Apple earbuds as a mic, but use the speakers on your laptop as the output). Restarting the app fixes it, but it's inconvenient to do so.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Because Screenhero is only available by invite from an existing user, it can be awkward to onboard new users or clients. This is likely a non-starter for some organizations, while a non-issue for others.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Screenhero allows me to assist colleagues that need help getting setup with a new tool or application. I've also used it to present interactive interfaces to clients and allow them to interact without a third-party hosting setup.

Because Screenhero plays well on most platforms, it skips the “what system are you on” dance that wastes cycles when planning a meeting. It also ensures that the impression of my presentation won't be tainted by technical issues.

Pair Programming / Designing / Sharing at its best

What do you like best?

ScreenHero has somehow figured out how to offer the highest resolution + lowest latency screen sharing I've been able to find. I've co-developed a few iOS apps using this software and its super easy and super fast.

The best part is the other participant can copy out and paste into your share window. Makes everything so seamless, like you're on a single computer together.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the app logs me out or says I'm logged in when I'm not. Sometimes the call drops off, but its rare.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great software! I'd get it or get an invite to it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to essentially be co-located with someone is a huge business advantage. Being able to work together in real time on a problem without having to travel or be in different time zones is no longer an issues. Huge money and time saver.

Easy way to collaborate including screen-sharing & control

What do you like best?

It's really easy to call somebody from the contact list. Clear audio is transmitted and you can instantly share your screen.

This solution helps a lot when working on problems together as it also allows screen control over the air without any extra plugin.

The online status in the menu bar app allows to quickly initiate on-demand meetings and calls.

What do you dislike?

Screenhero has been bought by Slack and discontinued their support for the standalone application. You can still download and signup for Screenhero and use it, but there's no ongoing support anymore.

Using Screenhero with our customers to solve support issues would be a great use case. Unfortunately, it's not scaleable in this direction and we have to jump on other screen-sharing solutions.

Especially the ease of use would make solving problems on the customer side a breeze.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure to get an invitation from an existing user as the Screenhero website only redirects to Slack. We are using Slack as well but they don't allow screen control yet.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We can jump on a quick screen-sharing session at any time without the need of scheduling a Skype or Webex call.

Input from different sources on a bigger problem definitely help. We are using the screen control feature a lot to fix issues with our colleagues much faster.

It also runs in the background so we most of the times stay on the sessions to work remotely next to each other.

Best screen-share tool ever!

What do you like best?

The audio and visual quality is unparalleled. I love the ability to pair immediately without having to exchange roles (presenter vs. viewer) so troubleshooting is a breeze.

What do you dislike?

Limits who you can invite to the platform based of subscription. Allowing guests of paying users would be super helpful to scale with growing businesses.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Best platform out there that I know of. If you can get on a trial program (via Slack since acquisition) to test it out, you'll be impressed with the video and audio quality, you won't regret it!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Troubleshooting customer issues or integrations. It's been super helpful when pairing with engineers to ensure that what the customer is seeing is something we can replicate to get a fix in place.

Screenhero

What do you like best?

I love that Screenhero is a minimal, modern solution to an old problem of screen sharing and desktop collaboration. It is ages beyond other screen sharing software, and I really enjoy the "buddy/messaging" interface it presents. It's also fantastic that it's now owned by Slack. Hoping for some tight integration there.

What do you dislike?

I think it isn't as obvious to use for non-technical users, which I think can be improved by some sort of tutorial/guide when first starting the application.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely give it a spin! It only gets better from here -- recently purchased by Slack, Screenhero has a long runway to make you even more productive as time goes on.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We're solving for inter-office communication and productivity via screen sharing. Screenhero has helped us in tremendously in these areas.

Awesome tool to collaborate with remote coworkers

What do you like best?

My favorite aspect about Screenhero is the ability to share your screen with a coworker within seconds! There is no need to pass over control over to the person you are screen-sharing with, they always have the ability to take the mouse from you when needed.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it is difficult to hear coworkers on the other end compared to Google Hangouts or Zoom. There is a bit of inconsistency with volume from users on the other end.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Screen Hero allows me to jump on a call sporadically and call someone instantly. This saves me time by not having to create a meeting such as hangouts and sending it over to the recipient., which is more feasible for quick questions to share your screen/pass control to your fellow coworker
