ScreenShare® Quick Start Guide

The ScreenShare Quick Start Guide (QSG) can be accessed at ScreenShare>Help.

1. What is ScreenShare?

ScreenShare uses ScreenShare technology to allow a smartphone and a tablet to share data and user interface. With this sharing, user can have better viewing experience and can access internet on tablet browser through the phone cellular network. ScreenShare includes ScreenShare browser, ScreenShare organizer and ScreenShare service that manages Bluetooth or Wi-Fi connection and data exchange between a phone and a tablet. ScreenSahre organizer can let you share and play your phone content (photos, videos, music, documents, etc.) to your tablet and export your phone contents to your tablet storage. ScreenShare organizer can also let you directly stream the music and videos stored on your phone to your tablet or TV(via HDMI cable).

Screenshare uses some patented technologies owned by Spring Design’s parent company, QuickBiz Limited. This free application intends to showcase the patented architecture and to attract OEMs to license the technologies. It provides a subset of features and is limited to work with Android phone sharing with Android tablet. Any commercial usage for additional platforms and new features would require a separate license from Spring Design Inc.
