Editors' review

Glide takes video-messaging to a new level by allowing you to effortlessly record and send an unlimited number of videos that the receiver can view even as you're recording them. This well-made app looks great and makes it easy to communicate with your friends and family.

Pros

Seamless experience: Recording and sharing videos works smoothly, without any performance issues.

Excellent performance: It's possible to share and receive even longer videos over your standard Internet connection, without the need for Wi-Fi, which means that you can use this app even when you're traveling or don't have access to a wireless network. This app is as accessible as a messaging or texting app.

Super fast: Not only does the polished interface allow you to start a chat with basically just two taps and then reply to video messages with just one tap, but you can also view the messages you're receiving in real time, just as your friends are recording them.

Cons

Odd Glide ID: After you enter your phone number and register your Glide account, a random ID is generated -- you need it to start conversations and connect with others. Glide IDs look quite odd, often being nothing more than a random sequence of letters, which makes them hard to remember. It would have been better if you could choose your own ID.

Usefulness depends on how social your friends are: If your friends are just not into video-messaging, or prefer good old Skype, this app won't be of much use to you.

Bottom Line

Glide proves to be an excellent video-messaging platform. It's more personal than text messaging, more convenient than video calling, and since it's entirely free, it can be used as an alternative to voice calling. You should try this app and tell your friends about it.
