ooVoo for Mac

CNET Editors' review

ooVoo for Mac's basic interface and features make it a good option for those looking to use their computer for video and conference calls over the Internet. The program also performs as a functional IM client.

The program is available to load for free, but some additional calling features require payments. For example, the application allows up to 12-way calling for free, but users must pay per caller above that number. Installation completed easily, as did account sign up, which walked the user through the process. Once initiated, ooVoo for Mac automatically signs the user in every time the program starts. The main menu is well-designed, with easy-to-see buttons for contacts and calling--the two main features. Calling people on the network is easy, and is completed by clicking on their contact information, which is also easy to locate. Calling outside numbers is possible from the application, but requires a payment method. Users can also post status messages and record videos for later uploading and e-mailing, subject to size limits. During calls, the quality was as good as with other competing applications. Ads were placed at the bottom of the screen, but they were fairly unobtrusive.

For those looking for a functional application for computer calls, ooVoo for Mac works well, but may require payments in some instances.
