Editors' review

Initially launched only for iPhone a few years ago, Viber for Mac today includes all appropriate functions for sending messages, making free calls, and syncing messages and contacts between any smartphone and Mac. Even though some features seem to be still in development, this app shows great results.

After downloading, the program prompts the user to enter information from their phone. Viber for Mac requires that the user own a smartphone--to confirm this, the program sends a message to the smartphone with a code, which verifies the applications and allows it to start. The main menu includes a left-side area containing all of the contacts available, along with their profile photographs. An area also contains clearly-labeled buttons for a dialer, conversations, contacts, and recent calls. A main, larger section of the window tracks the current conversation's information. Adding parties to the conversation is easy and just requires clicking a button. Users can then choose to make a voice or video call to another Viber user. Even though the video feature is listed as a beta version, both regular and video calls worked well during testing.

Viber for Mac works adequately for making voice calls and chats over the Internet. At the moment its smaller network and the fact that its video calling is good but still in beta version make it difficult to rival other, already established names in the market such as Skype; but the app shows great progress and is completely free.
