Adobe Acrobat Connect Pro Mobile is now available!

I am pleased to announce that Adobe Acrobat Connect Pro Mobile is now available for FREE download!
With this release, Connect Pro Mobile offers users mobile access via an iPhone or iPod touch to rich communications including collaborative meetings, training sessions and Web seminars. We anticipate iPad users will be able to take advantage of Connect Pro Mobile as well. For more information on iPad applications with Flash, click here.
Connect Pro Mobile was built using a pre-release of the next version of Flash Pro and was published as a native iPhone application. In fact, we’re the first publicly available Adobe-authored application that uses the Packager for iPhone technology! Plus, because Connect Pro Mobile was created using Flash, we will also be able to use the same code to deliver this application on other mobile devices when AIR for mobile devices becomes available. Last week at Mobile World Congress, we demo’d Connect Pro on a number of devices, including Android.
With Connect Pro Mobile, participants can watch and listen to live presentations including real-time meeting webcam video and screen sharing demonstrations. Mobile users can see who is in the meeting at any given time, and collaborate with others using live text chat. VoIP meeting audio will broadcast straight to iPhone or iPod touch devices over a WiFi or 3G connection. Meeting hosts also have the ability to give participants the option to join a telephone conference call, and even opt to have the conference dial out to the mobile user, eliminating the need to enter complex dialing codes.

    The mobile Adobe Connect App no longer works after connect was upgraded to version 8. I had it working well on the Blackberry Playbook just the day before but after the upgrade I cannot get it to actuall connect. Any help would be appreciated.

      Tony: Thanks for your comment and question. The Adobe Connect Mobile app works with Adobe Connect 7.5 – 8.1 (as you may be aware, we recently began rolling out Adobe Connect 8 Service Pack 1 to customers). We’ve done significant testing against the different versions of Adobe Connect in order to avoid issues such as what you mentioned. Is it possible you lost your network connection or mis-typed the Adobe Connect room URL in this case? Or that your organization added new login security during the upgrade to Adobe Connect 8? Those are some initial thoughts. If you issue isn’t solved now or with these in mind, please also consider visiting and posting in the mobile forum at ConnectUsers.com at: http://www.connectusers.com/forums/cucbb/viewforum.php?id=53
