"Terrible Software from Terrible People. Period."

December 28, 2010  |  By whirledorder

 |  Version: ICUII 8.2

Pros

I like the fact that they have rooms and sub-rooms open to the public. Though it is hard to find a lobby that doesn't involve illegal drug references, it is, I guess, nice to have that option if you are into that.

Cons

The software alone is terrible and hasn't been updated in years. It crashes a lot and often loses your PALs list. The video quality is mediocre at best and the overall usability is terrible. Worse, though, is the support staff--mean and hateful

Summary

Over the last 15 years, I have tried this product a number of times.

Every time I am dismayed by how terrible it remains and how downright hateful the staff is when asking for help.

Most recently I was told "stay away from my software" by the CEO of Cybration, the infamous Kevin Adair. To read more about how he stole the software from NanoCom, read the article from ZDNet: http://www.zdnet.com/news/programmer-pulls-the-plug-on-icuii/107937

When I offered to beta test the software in the hopes of having some input into the development cycle, I was called arrogant, childish and a "know it all". For the life of me, I cannot find a single legitimate reason for the CEO of any company to respond to any user in that manner.

So if you don't mind the lying, name-calling, and stealing done to bring this product to market, you might want to evaluate these points:

Though they claim to monitor their chat rooms, there are an inordinate number of rooms with names like PNP Pigs, or BB PNP. (for those who aren't familiar with the term PNP, it's a drug reference to injecting illegal drugs) This is most definitely not appropriate for most users and without any effort at all, you can usually find at least one or two people publicly using illegal drugs on camera in a public space provided by ICUII.

But all of those horrible reasons aside, the software is miserable and hasn't been updated in years and years (probably since it was stolen from NanoCom)

Even the latest beta (version 9b or Release Candidate 16) has very little to offer. The video quality is marginal, the software is buggy and quits with the error (User Panic 2) often. Changes in monitor resolution crash the app. People are constantly complaining about the fact that the software loses your contacts repeatedly.
It uses a multi-window approach that makes the windows difficult to manage and the default sounds are nothing less than shocking.

The public chat window looks and acts a lot like an IRC chat window (meaning no formatting features) and it is difficult to manage your active video mail.

Nearly every time you try to send a message, it fails the first time.

This software was revolutionary back in 1997 when it was the only software around like it (and NanoCom licensed it to Kevin Adair). But now nothing has changed and it honestly is not even worth trying. Certainly it is not worth the annual subscription of $100 or even $50 now.

Updated on Dec 28, 2010

Here is the latest e-mail I received from Kevin Adair regarding ICUII after I asked him not to contact me again.
The program has changed every year please publish this verbatim if you have the balls. The only thing that has not changed in 15 years is your ****** outlook on life. I feel sorry for people like you.
Pretentious beyond belief. If you had used our software over the years you could have tracked updates and upgrades. 4 generations of one product. From the very first product to have instant video messaging to multiplex audio and video conferences. To what we are about to release. To one of the oldest LGBT communities online
I terminated your access on the one machine you had this past week.

I rest my case.

After being threatened by the CEO of ICUII sofware, I published the entire thread contents including the material that he chose not to publish. The entire thread can be read at: http://techwhirled.blogspot.com/2010/12/i-want-to-share-with-you-my-experience.html

October 10, 2010  |  By NikosGR

Pros

Really fast video, support almost perfect

Cons

Not many people using it, probably because you need an annual subscription!

If this was free it would have been the perfect product!

"I regret ever loading this program."

April 03, 2009  |  By youkissedlilly

 |  Version: ICUII 8.0.6

Pros

I can think of absolutely nothing that I liked about this program. I ran out of room in the con section, so I'll put them here instead. This program frequently froze up, and upon exiting the program, 50 or more error messages popped up.

Cons

First off, I would like to address the poor, choppy video quality. Second, whenever I attempted to type anything in the room, it was extremely delayed and would frequently not even send what I typed. Very unfriendly attitudes in the rooms as well.

Summary

The bottom line is that I'd be surprised if this program didn't cause some sort of virus on my computer. The error messages that popped up upon exiting the program caused me to use CTRL+ALT+Del, and I uninstalled the program immediately thereafter. The fact that they have the nerve to charge for this program makes it even worse; I honestly can't believe that anyone would pay $50 for a program like this. My advice is to stick to better, less glitchy webcam chat providers and avoid this trainwreck of a program.

"Boring! What you see is what you get!"

March 12, 2009  |  By 2009jrwr

 |  Version: ICUII 8.0.6

Pros

the use of the cam to take snapshots of users in sending messages is great!

Cons

lots and lots of sexual predators online use caution!

Summary

save your money and join paltalk. you will have a better time there. ICU doesn't allow you to create your own room. ICU recruits those with too much time on their hands to be room monitors to make sure users follow the rules. LOL! Cyber Police

Updated on Mar 15, 2009

Save your money! It's not worth it! There are 2 categories to choose from and they are 1) Adult or 2) Gay Community. There are about 13 sub categories for the adult section and 10 for the gay community. BORING! NONSENSE! That's what you have to choose from. You will have a much larger selection to choose from if you join Paltalk.
