    "I finally installed Viber on my phone, I think I was the last person in the family to do so. I will admit I like the video calling. Now when I talk to family I can actually see them at the same time. It makes the conversation much nicer."

    "WhatsApp is one of my favorite all time Apps. It allows you to make calls and text message without having an actual phone plan. All you need is Wifi. In the past there have been other apps like this one. But, those did not have many features and you had to pay for it. I told all my friends about it and to download it which is free. The best part is I no longer need to buy a phone card or pay for long distance. I now can talk for free with my family in Germany!"

    "Who of us doesn't just love all these social media apps today? I know I do as I love staying connected to all my friends. OoVoo takes this to a new level though and you really must check it out! What I really love about it is its ability to connect me to a video call with ALL my friends at the same time, not just one person at a time like some other apps out there. How cool is that? And the messaging and video is crystal clear too! It's a great new app I highly recommend for anyone interested in staying connected wherever they are anytime. All the newest best features too."

    "Facebook Messenger may offer free calls but they have to be to other Facebook users. It's loaded with gimmicks, too, which will be pretty annoying to some users."

    "While the idea is appealing, the talk feature needs more input. Consider the messaging aspect a little bit more and revolve the concept around it. The free calls needs to be the main theme and I like that idea the most! "
