A video chat app for iPhone, OoVoo integrates with Facebook chat so you can talk with multiple Facebook friends at once. You can use a combination of video and text chat and can converse simultaneously with as many as 12 of your friends.

Pros

Contact integration: OoVoo allows you to find contacts through Facebook, Twitter, your email account, your phone's contacts, and by directly searching for friends who have an OoVoo account. The feature that identifies friends who are already using the app is especially useful.

Free video chatting: The ability to video chat effectively with multiple contacts at the same time is a treat. This piece of software provides real value for a free app.

Video quality: During testing, the app exhibited a good video quality. Some lag was apparent, but no more so than you would see in any of the competing apps on the market.

Cons

Sign up: The sign up process is quite exhaustive, requiring a considerable amount of information as well as phone number verification. Asking for the gender of the user without giving him or her the option to refuse to answer isn't appealing.

Advertising: The ad bar that displays along the bottom of the screen behaves unpredictably: sometimes it's blank, but clicking near it brings up an ad anyway; at other times it displays intrusive ads with constantly animated text. Fortunately, a 99-cent upgrade removes these ads.

Bottom Line

If video chatting with multiple people at the same time for free sounds fun to you, then OoVoo will not disappoint you. This app works as advertised and makes finding chat buddies easy enough.

    "ooVoo rocks......."

    June 14, 2011   |   By BrettNYC

    Version: Oovoo for iPhone 1.0.5

    Pros

    Great quality of video clarity when I video chat. The six way chat session is very good and I use it at least once a week to connect with my family and the best part about it is I can take the call from anywhere since the mobile app was released.

    Cons

    The only con at the moment is that my fiance had to upgrade to the iphone since her old phone did not have a front facing camera.

    Summary

    It is a great app and like the prior reviewer wrote....if you are have problems with the video chat it is most likely the mobile connection vs the application.
    I enjoy ooVoo and am happy my family and I get to connect like this since we cannot have our family dinners anymore.

    "ooVoo is a wonderful application for my pc & iphone."

    June 13, 2011   |   By Goran07

    Version: Oovoo for iPhone 1.0.5

    Pros

    I have been using ooVoo's mobile app since it was released. Don't read into the false reviews that the app has faults. There are no faults with the application...if you use your mobile phone like I do it is the wireless signal not the app.

    Cons

    None at the moment...wish all the FALSE reviews would stop...which are most likely employees from ooVoo's competitors that are upset that this product was not theirs.

    Summary

    I have been using ooVoo's mobile app since it was released. Don't read into the false reviews that the app has faults. There are no faults with the application...if you use your mobile phone like I do it is the wireless signal not the app. The mobile app works great on WiFi and may be a bit better than 3G or 4G since they have some bugs but the carries won't say that in their commercials.
