What is the history and popularity of the app?

ChatRide was founded in March of 2010 as a communication website. Based in Singapore, ChatRide offers a unique service for anyone that wants to chat on the fly. The site creators wanted to give users an extremely easy, fast, and immediate way to connect online using a web camera and chat room. The result was ChatRide, which requires no additional information and gives users the ability to create a chat area at the click of a button.

What are the differences to other apps?

ChatRide is unique because of its simplicity. Users can get started right away and there is no registration needed. One of the problems with similar sites is the need for all users to create accounts to get things going. On ChatRide, anyone can join in the webcam chat, even if it is their first time using the site.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

The ChatRide website mimics the way the site works. The homepage is sparse, with no clutter for a very clean appearance. Right at the center, users can find all the tools they need to learn more or get started with a live webcam chat. Four navigational links across the button of the site further assist user who want to contact ChatRide, share the site on Facebook, or learn how to answer a ChatRide call.

How does the registration process work?

The beautiful thing about ChatRide is that anyone can stop by and use the site without creating an account. The site requires no registration for new or repeat users. All that is needed is the link, which is provided when the user starts a call. ChatRide makes it very easy for a group of people to hang out online with their webcams.

What does it cost to use the application?

There are many services available that offer various hosting for chat rooms or webcams that require a fee. ChatRide is not one of those. The site allows anyone to create a webcam chat area when they need it, anytime, at no cost. There is currently no premium paid membership option, or any membership option for that matter. Users can choose to share ChatRide on their Facebook profiles, but this is optional. The lack of cost or registration makes it much easier to encourage others to join in a chat. Of course, chat areas are only available when the user creates them, but this is still a helpful tool for a group of people that want to make their own private area to converse with webcams online. The price almost makes ChaRide a much more appealing option for return visitors.

Who would you recommend the application to?

ChatRide is ideal for anyone who loves to use webcams and chat online. Not everyone is a fan of chatting online, and even fewer want to use webcams, but those that do can fall in love with ChatRide. The site makes it easy to create a chat area with a click. No registration or fees are required to utilize all of the sites features.
