    "Impossible to register"

    February 17, 2005  |   By tristanbgilb

    Version: BuddyTalk 1.0

    Cons

    After a difficult day of trying to register this product they send me an email saying that they want me to fax them credit card statements, a copy of my credit card, and identification. Initially registering this product they told me that I can't use a public email address such as my yahoo account. So I called up my internet provider and asked them about the email box they provide to me that I never use. Any way I never got the chance to register this product because of the hoops required. I don't know if it works or not.

    "Annoyingware, but forgiven"

    November 20, 2003  |   By D-cat

    Version: BuddyTalk 1.0

    Summary

    It does what it says and at very nice quality. What it lacks is mere annoyances that result from lack of some basic features and inability to save default settings. For example, when it's started, it always comes up (cannot start minimised), and it always starts in PC-to-Phone mode, which is really cheap, but not free. It also starts up a web page that simply tells you that community chat has been discontinued (used to be an auto-signin page). When searching for other users, the result list is fixed at a 50 maximum and the user cannot choose how the list is sorted. Also, this software will require an enhanced Full-duplex (separate record and playback mixer controls: eg. Sound Blaster Live) for smooth operation. It will function on more primitive full duplex cards, but one or both users may recieve an echo. Half duplex operation is not supported. Unconfirmed at the moment- it may have caused interference with my FTP server while in PC-to-PC chat.

    I forgive the small annoyances in this software because it is version 1.0, it does have an effective central server-based call system, so you don't need to know the person youre trying to contact's IP, and the voice quality is very good. I was able for a short time to make the voice break up, but it took a solid bandwidth crunch and a heavy processor load (virus scan) to do it.

    I does as it advertizes, simply needs to be made more user friendly.

    "The program seems like an excellent idea, but is hard to configure!"

    October 13, 2002  |  

    Version: BuddyTalk 1.0

    Summary

    I have recently been endlessly searching for a program that could make free long distance calls, because I have a lot of family and friends who live far away.
    I read the user opinions, and it seemed like BuddyTalk was free, so I downloaded it.
    Unfortunately, it either is not free, or I simply cannot figure out how to register! I've looked all over their website, and I cannot find where you are supposed to obtain a username.
    Please, if any of you know where to get a username, or, better yet, a free program that I can get, PLEASE send me an E-mail at GrantinatorPlus13@hotmail.com and I would be greatful.
    However, the program does seem like an excellent idea, and it is certainly professional looking.
