Looking Good on Webcam During the Summer Season

If you have windows in your home, you’ve probably noticed how nice the weather is getting. In fact, summer is just a few weeks away. That doesn’t mean you have to get off cam sites and go outside to play; you can still enjoy the company of a complete stranger even during the hotter months. In fact, more people enjoy using cam sites during the summer season because this is when most people feel the most confident about their bodies. If you want to feel great about showing your body on cam this summer, follow these tips to look the best you possibly can on cam.

How to look good on cam as a girl

If you want to look attractive on cam, you’ll need to wear makeup. Sure it may sound ridiculous to make yourself look all pretty for some stranger on a cam site, but since most webcams are grainy, your makeup will really make you stand out. Your chances of attracting more guys on cam will increase significantly.

Another tip to look good on cam during the summer season is to wear fewer clothes. Obviously it’s hotter outside so you won’t be prone to wearing a sweater. Nonetheless, the more skin you show, the more guys will be attracted to you. Show off some of the cleavage and put those legs on display. There’s no harm in using your body to look amazing in the eyes of men. If you’ve got a great body, show it off on cam and watch the guys line up to drool at the sight of you.

Finally, you should complete the mix by placing yourself somewhere sunny. Don’t go directly outside because the sun will most likely be too strong and you won’t be visible. However, placing yourself near a window will allow you to glow on cam and guys will really want to get to know you better.

How to look good on cam as a boy

If you’re a guy, you’ll want to show off those abs. Even if you don’t have abs, girls go crazy for guys without a shirt on. Take that shirt off and show the ladies that you’re comfortable in your skin.

If you want to go all out, go outside and get a nice tan. Girls really love guys who take care of themselves. Having a nice tan during the summer months will show up on cam and you will definitely get more quality attention by girls on cam.

Wearing a baseball cap is another turn-on for most girls during the summer season. It shows that you love sports or simply that you enjoy being active. It’s a sub-conscience thing, but trust me, it works wonders!

Which Internet Browsers Perform Best for Video Chat Sites?

When it comes to using your computer to go online, you will normally use a preferred web browser. Almost every single one of us has our own preferences; some of use prefer using the good old Internet Explorer, some prefer Firefox and some may even prefer using Safari. Whether or not a web browser works better than another is truly up to the preferences of the person using the browser, but in the end, most browsers do have their differences. Although most browsers now have tons of similarities such as being able to open up several tabs and being able to add favourite bars, the backend often has some differences. Let’s take a look at how the popular browsers handle video chat sites.

Google Chrome

new-google-chrome-logo

Google Chrome is the clear leader for most video chat users. This web browser comes equipped with all of the necessary plugins you need in order to get started. However, you may need to update some plugins and extensions such as Shockwave Flash in order to get this web browser to function at its best.

Chrome allows you to place a handy favourites bar right under your navigation bar which makes browsing between your favourite websites easy. With video chat sites, this is a leader because of its lightning fast browsing speeds. If you want a great web browser that delivers, you should definitely add Google Chrome to your arsenal.

Mozilla Firefox

firefox_logo-only_RGB

Mozilla Firefox is a handy web browser that gives you tons of extensions and plugins just like Chrome does. However, this web browser has a reputation of being slightly slower than Chrome. Nonetheless, the layout of this browser is easy to understand and it makes browsing between various cam sites simple.

Whether you prefer Firefox over Chrome, or any other web browser, will ultimately come down to personal preferences. In most cases people tend to choose one or the other because of the design layout rather than the performances since both browsers perform similarly.

Internet Explorer

ie10

Internet Explorer is standard web browser for all Windows operating systems. It’s the one that most people grew up with and got to know for so many years. However, it’s slowly being pushed under the radar because of the bigger, stronger and better browsers like Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

If you choose to use Internet Explorer, you should expect to have to download many plugins and extensions manually. However, the most recent versions of Internet Explorer are catching up with the newer browser. In the end, this browser is still popular, but no longer the leader.

Safari

safari-logo-lg

Finally, let’s mention the web browser that is the standard for all Macintosh operating systems; Safari. Safari is a great web browser that gives you simple to use features and tons of included perks. If you own a Mac, you should definitely give it a try before going straight to another web browser’s download page.

Safari is fast and simple to use; the favourites bar is easily accessible and the large tabs makes it easy to browse between many sites simultaneously.

Will OkHello Work Better than Airtime Did?

Remember back when Shawn Fanning launched the infamous music downloading program called Napster? You most definitely remember back when Sean Parker launched the very popular Facebook. Well these two iconic website developers have joined forces in the past to come up with the terrible Airtime. Airtime was a video chat tool that failed miserably almost instantly. After just a few short weeks, the creators of Airtime lost hope in their site that had received hundreds of millions of dollars in advertising.

6.1 airtime-shawn-fanning-sean-parker

Sean and Shawn are back. They believe that their newest idea will revolutionize the mobile phone world. OkHello is their app and they really wanted to take a different approach with this idea. Rather than spending millions of dollars in advertising, they spent next to nothing. They realized with their previous project that the amount of money you spend towards advertising changes nothing if your idea is boring.

What Makes OkHello Different?

OkHello is nothing like Airtime. Wait, scratch that; it’s exactly like it. The only difference is that it’s made for mobile phones rather than computers. That’s actually a huge difference because there are already tons of video chat sites for computers, but very few video chat apps for mobile phones. OkHello is one of the first of its kind which makes it quite revolutionary and with big names like Shawn Fanning and Sean Parker behind it, it’s bound to be an icon.

ok-hello1

So far OkHello has been doing good. It’s not huge, but it’s only been available in the Apple App Store for roughly a month. The app has just recently been launched in the Android Market and is expected to launched in other app stores soon. Although we know for a fact that Shawn and Sean are behind this app, they refuse to admit it. They have decided to go blind with this operation and receive no type of media attention whatsoever. This could either end up hurting them badly or making the app explode later in the future.

OkHello v.s. Airtime

When it comes to deciding whether or not this app will succeed more than Airtime did, it’s quite easy to figure it out. Of course OkHello will do a lot better than Airtime; Airtime failed miserably and even a train wreck would be considered “doing better than Airtime”. That being said, it’s quite obvious that this app will do good. It’s unique and has all of the necessary features bundled into a simple to use GUI. Users have been giving it positive reviews thus far and it’s only getting more and more attention. If you’ve been searching for a good video chat app, check it out; it’s worth the download.

Best Time of Day to Use Cam Sites

Many people tend to ask what time of day is the best to use cam sites. This is a huge question on everyone’s minds because the time of day can have a huge impact on the amount of online users. With more online users at the same time as you, you will have a lot more diversity and less chances of seeing the same person twice during one cam session. In order to get the best results for your cam site usage you will need to optimize your experience by logging on when there are the most amount of online users. Keep reading to figure out when and why more users tend to be logged on Chatrandom.com.

What is the Best Time Zone to Follow?

In order to figure out which time of day is the best to use Chatrandom we need to first take a look at where most users come from. The country or origin places a huge role in the best time of day to use this site because that will affect the various time zones.

At Chatrandom, the majority of users are from the United States. This means that you should follow those time zones for the best times of the day. For instance; following an EST time zone will give you more chances of finding online users. In general you should adapt your usage to UTC -5 to UTC -8 because those time zones are the ones that most people on Chatrandom live within. However, many users come from Russia and Italy as well. So following those time zones is another option if you live in European countries.

What Time of Day do Most Users Come Online?

Still following the American time zones, most users come online in the early morning, late afternoon and at night. It’s important to note that most cam site users work or have classes during the day. This means that they are normally busy during the early afternoon and just before lunchtime. However, it’s not uncommon for people to login to Chatrandom before going to work or school. This means that many users can be spotted online in the morning.

Nonetheless, the time of day when Chatrandom is the most populated is at night. Between 7pm and 11pm is when you will have the most chances of seeing a record being broken. On some days, the amount of online users can reach 100,000 and more at these peak hours.

If you want to make sure that you use Chatrandom when there is the most amount of online users, you should use it during the night while following North American time zones. This will give you more people online to chat with and you’ll be more likely to find a specific type of person if you’re looking for one.

Full Review of TopCamSites.com – A New Arrival that will Simplify your Life!

Today we want to share with all of you one of the best sites that has launched in 2014. This site is a directory of all the best cam sites on the internet and obviously Chatrandom is listed there. Although it’s a relatively new site, we were impressed as to how professionally designed it is and how much detail goes into every new site that is added to their directory. We’ve decided to give www.topcamsites.com a thorough review so that you can see how great this cam site directory truly is.

2

Overall Appearance:

What impressed me the most at TopCamSites was the effort that went into designing the site. It’s clear that this site was designed by professionals in the industry who have built websites in the past. The design is simply yet elegant making it a true pleasure to use. Whether you want to quickly find a site that interests you or even if you want to spend several hours checking out all of the available cam sites in their list, you will find the design layout to be perfect for both occasions.

3

The colors chosen are easy on the eyes and the way that the categories/sites are laid out across the web pages makes it easy to view everything.

Appearance of Site Pages:

When you click on one of the sites that are listed at TopCamSites you will be brought to a new web page directly on the same site that gives you thorough details for the site you chose. For instance; if you click on the link for Chatrandom you will be brought to a web page with tons of details about Chatrandom.

4

This page is split into different sections that are available in dropdown menus which have been optimized for mobile phone use. This basically means that when browsing the site via a mobile phone you will find it to be much easier to view the information. Here is a breakdown of each section.

  • First you’re given a brief overview of each site. This includes information that will allow you to determine what the site is all about.
  • Then you can see the site features. This is where you can figure out information such as whether or not the site has a gay feature, a girls only feature and so on.
  • The following section is called Pricing/Hidden Fees. I really love this part because it shows you how much it costs for private shows/group shows and how much you will have to pay for tokens. This makes it a lot easier for you to determine which site has the best prices. You can also see whether or not a site has hidden fees.
  • The next section is called User Benefits. This shows you how you can benefit by using the site that you’re reading about. You can see information such as how many users are online at any given moment, whether or not the loading speeds are fast or even if the site focuses on things like security.
  • Next up is a Drawbacks section where you can see the downsides of using the site that you’re reading about. For instance, you can see if the site has a lot of explicit content, if the models are rude and other such information.
  • The final section is called The Bottom Line. This is basically a summary of what the site is and what you should expect from using it.

User Reviews

When you click on a site’s link you are brought to the first tab which has different sections (mentioned above). However, you can also view 3 other tabs; User Reviews, Trends and Alexa. The User Reviews section is where anyone can leave a review of the site in question. For instance, if you used Chatrandom, you can go to TopCamSites and leave a review for others to see. You can leave a star feedback of 1 to 5 and you can leave a short comment.

7

I personally love this feature because it gives you a true description of the site. Actual people have left those reviews making them more believable than random reviews you may find on the internet.

Trends

The next tab is the Trends tab. This basically gives you a graph that shows you the Google Trends report since the beginning of that site. With Chatrandom’s trend tab you’ll see the Google Trends from back in 2011 when Chatrandom was first launched. This gives you a quick overview of the popularity of each site. If you want to see the Google Trends report in more detail there is a link available below the chart.

Alexa

The Alexa tab gives you details for the site in question that are taken from Alexa.com. The information is presented to you in charts and you can view either the rank, reach or page views stats. You can also go back and view the stats from the beginning of its existence which is a great way to view whether or not the site is popular and well ranked.

Whether you want to view cam sites with cougars, fetish cam sites, Asians on cam, redheads or anything else, you will find it with ease using the categories tab. TopCamSites is by far the easiest cam site directory to use and navigate on.

The Aftermath of the Cam Industry Boom

The cam industry experienced a huge boom in traffic when Chatroulette.com launched back in 2009. The industry was born and since then several thousands of cam sites have been created. Only about a hundred of cam sites still stand to this very day and a mere handful of them are actually worth using. The cam industry boom had a huge impact on the way we socialize online which is why we want to take a look back at how the boom affected us then and how the aftermath of the cam industry boom affects us today.

Operation_Upshot-Knothole_-_Badger_001

Why so many cam sites launched after Chatroulette.com

The boom was started because of one site and one site only; Chatroulette.com. Andrey Ternovsky, the creator of the original Chatroulette launched his site back in 2009 and within a matter of days, it was a worldwide sensation. Obviously, many others wanted to capitalize on the opportunity and make some profits with this new and revolutionizing industry. This caused hundreds of new cam sites to open up within the first year of Chatroulette’s existence.

Why most of these sites failed

Although so many sites were launched to compete with Chatroulette, most of them failed. Their failure was caused by a lack of user input. They didn’t listen to the users and they didn’t care what users wanted; they simply wanted to make a quick buck. Nothing can ever last when the users have no input. Even the original Chatroulette.com failed miserably because Andrey Ternovsky ignored what the users asked for and wanted.

Sites that made it through the boom

A handful of sites made it through the cam industry boom and are still around today. Most of these sites a very popular and get tons of traffic every single day. Chatrandom.com is one of the best examples of this. Chatrandom waiting out the initial boom because the creators were in no hurry; they wanted to take their time and make their site perfect before launching it. When Chatrandom launched nearly 2 years after the original Chatroulette, most of the Chatroulette fans migrated over the Chatrandom.

The features were better, the rules were less strict and the site was extremely simple to use; it’s still like that to this very day. Chatrandom is the clear winner here.

Other notable sites that made it through and still stand today include the following:

The cam industry today

The aftermath of the cam industry boom therefore leaves us with fewer cam sites to choose from, but better quality sites. The owners of the sites that survived know that they need to please their users in order to keep going strong. This makes these sites truly addictive and fun to use. If you want to see more great cam sites, take a look at www.topcamsites.com.

Full Review: Google Video Chat

Smartphones are constantly evolving; most phones now have rear and front cameras. This increases the possibility of having video conversations with others and Google has bounced on this opportunity by creating a video chat app. With other video chat apps available, it’s worth taking the time to see whether or not the Google video chat feature is truly needed.

google-talk-video-call-t-mobile

Availability

The Google video chat app (also known as Google Talk Video Chat) is available for Android devices only which truly limits the usability of this app. When you compare this to competitors such as Skype, it’s clearly not going to win the battle. Google has plans of expanding into other markets, but at the moment this simply isn’t the case. Furthermore, you will need to own a Google Nexus in order to get this app to function properly.

Performance

When it comes to performance, the Google Talk Video Chat app truly did a decent job. I must mention that the quality was good enough to have a webcam capable conversation, but it was not quite as amazing as the iPhone’s FaceTime feature. Nonetheless, if you compare the Google video chat tool with the Skype video chat app, the overall performance is quite similar. Whether you choose to use this app over a 3G network, 4G network or even a Wi-Fi connection, the video quality will always remain quite similar.

The video flow is quite fluid and the lag was practically unnoticeable which is great for a mobile phone video chatting app. Some sort of lag is always to be expected and the Google Talk Video Chat app keeps it to a minimum.

Features

Overall, the features are on par with the competitors such as Skype and FaceTime. The Google Talk Video Chat app gives you the ability to view incoming text messages on the bottom of your phone’s screen without having to exit the conversation that you’re having. You can also press the text message to quickly view it in full screen. Other features such as being able to access a few control buttons while having a conversation are much appreciated. During a video chat conversation, you can disable the microphone, turn up the volume and perform a few other minor onscreen controls.

Bottom Line

When it comes down to whether or not the Google Talk Video Chat app is actually worth using, the simple answer is no. The simple fact that it’s only available for Android devices makes it quite useless. You’re better off using universal tools like Skype which will allow you to contact anyone regardless of whether they are running Android, Apple or any other type of phone. The few features that this app has are nothing new and for now, this app is just not worth it when compared to the competitors.
