To join a screen.

They can either type in the link to their browser to instantly view your screen. Or go to screenleap website, punch in the share code at the top right of the screen to join a screen.

According to their website, you can use the service to view your computer from any devices including iPhone, and iPad. But unless I am not aware, I don’t think you can install Java on a non-jailbroken iOS device.
