Tuple is a relatively new tool optimized for remote paired programming, designed to fill the gap Slack left in the marketplace after abandoning Screenhero. Although it still exhibits some growing pains — platform availability is limited to Mac OS for now (with Linux support coming soon), and it has some UI quirks to work through — we've had good experience using it within those constraints. Unlike general-purpose video- and screen-sharing tools like Zoom, Tuple supports dual control with two mouse cursors, and unlike options such as Visual Studio Live Share, it isn't tied to an IDE. Tuple supports voice and video calls, clipboard sharing, and lower latency than general-purpose tools; and its ability to let you draw and erase in your pair's screen with ease makes Tuple a very intuitive and developer-friendly tool.
