    "Do you want to group chat in the 21st century? This product is for you. It is reinventing the private chat room feature of our youth to allow for in time conversation with any group of people, friends, work etc. While it serves a function, it is redundant with other apps on the market and lacks a spark of uniqueness. I'd like to see additional features and product usage for my advance user experience."

    "Nimbuzz is a pretty decent messaging app for your Mac. I gave it a try since I really hate Skype, and was moderately satisfied. The problem is convincing others to join it too, so you can actually have someone to talk to."

    "As instant messaging is being phased out by the older providers, this app might not be as useful as expected. Yes there is video call support, and texting between people can include images. But any other messaging software associated with the chat platform would work just as well. Most other messaging programs have the same options and are just as easy to use. "
