Free video calling, recording & messaging – No Downloads

Conduct live video calls, record & email video messages, chat with others – using Snapyap

Online video communications app that offers the ability to conduct live video calls, record video messages, & send/receive video emails without the need to download any thing or install any special hardware.  The apps interface and platform is well designed and straightforward as possible, requiring only a webcam and an Internet connection.  Registration is free and you will be asked to create a username. The platform will assign you a unique URL (from your username) which will assist you when setting up connections with others.

The video chat component makes it easy to instantly connect with friends, family members, and colleagues from anywhere in the world as the process is conducted right from the users web browser.

Video calling – initiate video calls (like Skype) with other snapyap users as the app makes it easy to identify which of your ‘contacts’ are logged in and available. You can also search for other users by typing their username or email address and pressing the ‘Dial button’ which functions like an Internet video phone without the need to download anything.  The app will also provide a couple of different sizes of a ‘call me button’ that you can place on your website or blog for others to contact you.

Video emails – record a video message and surprise someone with more than text in your next email.  This component is free and does not require you or any of your recipients to download any video email software to view. There is no limit on the amount of video mail that you can send or receive and your recipients DO NOT need to be registered members to open, view, or listen to your messages.

Review of Basic App Features:

  • Unlimited video chat
  • Unlimited video calls
  • Unlimited video emails
  • Offers free “call me button/logo”
  • No downloading for anyone
  • No installation (Adobe Flash required)

Summary Review and Grade

  • Free Registration – create username for URL
  • No Downloads
  • No Installation for the App (Adobe Flash is needed)
  • Works on All Web-browsers
  • No Technical Experience Necessary
  • Works Cross-platform – on all computer platforms – (Linux, Macs, Windows)

This is a very clean and user-friendly app for connecting with friends and colleagues that will work on any operating system and will not require you or other participants to download and install an application to get started.  The app does utilize an Adobe Flash plug-in (which is also free but will not work on your iDevies).  We had to deduct a little in the grade because of the Flash requirement but for a quick and easy way to utilize free video communications, give this app a try.
