Online-meeting startup MeetingBurner has updated its simple, clean iOS app to support the iPad, the company announced today.

MeetingBurner launched out of beta in early February with relatively inexpensive pricing. It faces steep competition in the online meeting space from Cisco’s WebEx, Adobe’s Connect, Citrix’s GoToMeeting, and AnyMeeting. With such fierce competitors, MeetingBurner needs all the tools it can get to help people attend its meetings. The iPad is an excellent tool for enterprise and is becoming surprisingly popular for sales teams and executives.

“The ability to attend a meeting or webinar remotely was extremely important to us,” MeetingBurner CMO Chris Van Dusen told VentureBeat via email. “Our hosts have the ability to attract more participants to their live meetings, and attendees are not locked to their computers. The iPad was a natural fit for MeetingBurner, offering high-speed streaming of both the audio and video, full chat capability and pinch to zoom functionality.”

MeetingBurner does not offer an Android app yet, but it says it is steadily working on one. Android users, for now, can view MeetingBurner meetings in their browsers as long as they support mobile Flash.

Ladera Ranch, Calif.-based MeetingBurner is a division of larger company Networx Online and has ten employees on its team.
