Leaving Beta: Screenhero 1.0

image

We’ve been hard at work building Screenhero into the best real-time collaboration experience possible, and so we’re proud to announce that today we officially launch Screenhero 1.0! That’s right: We’re coming out of beta.

Release 1.0 is the culmination of our efforts since we began the beta program in December 2012. Thanks to the excellent bug reports, feature suggestions and feedback from our community, Screenhero now offers:

  • Blazing fast screen sharing with multiple mouse cursors
  • Speed, speed, and more speed!
  • High quality voice calls
  • Fast presenter switching
  • Integrations with Slack, HipChat and Alfred
  • Mac (10.6+) and Windows (7+) support
  • And of course — rock solid stability

And there’s more to come! We’re committed to helping your team feel more productive, connected and collaborative.

With the launch of 1.0, Screenhero is transitioning to being a paid service. All users will receive a 14-day free trial (no credit card required), after which you have a choice of two plans:

  • Standard plan ($9.99/user/month): Subscribe to the Standard plan, and continue to take advantage of all the great features that Screenhero offers. This plan includes centralized billing so you can pay for your entire team in one place. Designed for teams and pro users.
  • Guest plan (Free): Do nothing, and when your free trial expires in 14 days, your account will convert to the Guest plan, which lets you work—for free!—with any paid user. Designed for consulting with clients, teaching students, providing support, and working with others outside your core team.

Additionally, we may be able to offer discounts for non-commercial use to non-profits, open source projects, and qualifying educational users. Just drop us a line, and give us details of your organization or project — we’ll review each request on a case-by-case basis.

You can find more details about Screenhero pricing on our conveniently named pricing page.

Login to your account page using your Screenhero credentials to upgrade your account, add teams members to your invoice, or manage your billing.

If you have any questions or feedback, feel free to email us at everyone@screenhero.com.  We’re very excited about the future of Screenhero—thank you for being a part of this journey with us!

Screenhero is making collaboration even easier. Beta Release 13, available now, allows you to start a voice chat without sharing your screen, and lets you rapidly switch between sharing and hosting a screen.

Screenhero: Not Just For Remote Working

In a previous blog post, we showed you how to turbo-charge a pairing station with Screenhero to get the benefit of two mouse cursors. But you don’t need a dedicated pairing station to reap the benefits of pairing with Screenhero.

International Keyboard Support: For Real This Time

a keyboard

Yeah, so we announced support for international keyboards before—and it worked, but not completely, as you were quick to point out! We’ve just posted an update to Beta Release 12 that includes vastly improved support for European keyboards on OS X. This update also handles cmd-q, cmd-w, cmd-h, and cmd-m in a much clearer way on all keyboards, transmitting these sequences to the host computer instead of (say) quitting Screenhero. If you aren’t already running 0.12.1.0, you can download it now, or use the in-app updater. Let us know what you think!.

Unfortunately, we’re still working on AltGr support for Windows users. We aim to have support for European keyboards in our Windows client in the next few weeks.

Screenhero Use Cases: Local Collaboration

Operating systems assume that there is only one person accessing the desktop at a time, limiting us to only one mouse cursor per desktop. But what if you really want two cursors, for a local pairing session, for example? Screenhero to the rescue!
