iSpQ VideoChat is a sort of instant messenger with video and audio capabilities. When I first installed this application, it reminded me of ICQ. ICQ was great, but it wasn't as organized and as neat as MSN Messenger. The same happens with iSpQ. When you first launch it, you will be welcomed by a screen with usernames. There you have to invite people to chat with you. You can't really perform a thorough search to find the people that you want. Not at first sight, at least. The graphical user interface is crowded with information and it is kind of confusing at first. On the lower-left corner, you see your camera feed. It is a small version of it, but you can make it bigger if you want. Once you do find somebody that accepted your invitation, you are taken to a different window, where you can see the person and the other person can see you. The quality was average on my first chat. The video tended to freeze at regular intervals. So I am not sure whether that was because the person I was chatting with had a bad connection or because the application couldn't handle the traffic. I don't really like this application. Maybe the user base is big enough for people to find other people. If you just want to video chat with somebody you know, I'd say get Gmail talk or Skype. The last version of this application is 8.0.60. This review focuses on version 8.0, though.
- Too much information in a disorganized fashion
- Only average video and audio quality
- Requires a fee when other applications are free
