Editors' Review

+

Paltalk's integration of video, audio and text chatting unified into one window makes for a strong chatware program that includes a wealth of features.

Parental controls employ a password to change settings or block groups; adult content is hidden by default and all rooms are moderated. Add in the room ratings of G, R and A, and safe chatting is a cinch. Right-clicking a person's name gives a user-defined amount of personal information, with private room invite and file sending options. Sessions can be printed and saved, and buddy lists from other chat accounts can be automatically imported. Latest updates include screening rooms to share online vids, music feeds from Rhapsody and multiplayer games in case you get bored talking.

However, the abundance of pop-up ads, which strike even while you're in the middle of joining a room, might motivate users to pay for a subscription or look elsewhere. Free accounts only can open Webcams for a few seconds, while paid users can open multiple video windows. The app crashed for us when closing, and the system slowdowns were disappointing. Uninstalling Paltalk left an icon on the desktop.

Still, the thousands of rooms for politics, karaoke, tech advice, and porn mean that anybody can find a connection on Paltalk.

Pros

Works great. As for the terrorist stuff mentioned here, not sure you can even control the people who communicates through this network except excluding countries.

"Once installed it is hard to uninstall completely...you need to tweak the reg"

March 07, 2008  |  By strikey

 |  Version: PaltalkScene 9.4

Pros

It is complex, yet simple to use. Has many features and easy to make and control your own room. Probably the best of all IM programs out there, and I have used all of them except AOL. I particularly love its file transfer and muting features. The free option is great and no real need to pay for the upgraded video option unless thats ur thing. Well done paltalk

Cons

Tends to close down allot for maintenance...like once a week at least, and for about 20 mins or so. A bit cheeky with its registry files. Not sure how secure it is with spyware,

"Is this related to Paltalk.com?"

January 15, 2008  |  By bargainholic

 |  Version: PaltalkScene 9.4

Pros

I'm not sure. If this is related to paltalk.com McAfee SiteAdvisor says you get unrelated downloads, but this site does not report that risk.

Cons

I'm not sure, I'm trying to get information/confirmation.
