    This is the greatest video chat software ever invented. I haven't tried the Windows version yet, but on Android this is the only app that supports the Dell Streak 5's front facing camera. The Windows software can't be much worse than the Android version and it's not that hard to add support for a front facing camera in a video chat app under Froyo or Eclair. It's just as easy as it is in Gingerbread.

    Sadly disappointed with the prog. The ads (which are hideous) add insult to injury.

    I used to give this 5 starts - now if I could give it zero I would but guess the lowest I can go is a 1.

    What it boils down too is the ad's are ridiculous. It's such a shame too. When ooVoo first came out I thought it was the best because the streaming audio/video worked better than any other videochat program I'd ever used. Now it's just a bunch of banner ads wrapped around a program! Like what the hell ooVoo!?!?

    If they ever decide to give a crap about their users - I'll be back - but until then guess it's back to skype (along with all their other users no doubt)

    The program itself is fair - 3 stars

    HOWEVER - I would gladly give this ZERO stars

    Many of the adverts are from companies that routinely lie
    eg "[Google mail logo] You have a new message ..." clicking on it take user to a website (nothing to do with Google) with a competition to win an iPad

    I have written a strong email to customer services
    "While I appreciate your software is financed by the revenue from adverts - the least you can do, is embed advert from companies that don't lie or misrepresent themselves."

    and as alexsch8 states opens a door to all manor of horrors.

    I will be staying away until they either remove the adverts (for free) or clean them up.
