The language of the Internet has moved from IRC and messengers to more elastic and flexible platforms like tweets and Facebook updates. Before, everyone was online on Yahoo Messenger or MSN Messenger so creating group chats and video conferences was easy. Now, you have to schedule online chats, instead of the real-time always-present messengers we knew before.
Fortunately, a new website called Reflap lets you connect with your friends and family through video chatting with the greatest of ease.
Once signed up, Reflap gives you a permanent address where anyone can call you. You can set up a quick call from your dashboard when you are available and just send the link over so that anyone can open it and talk to you.
You can also make quick group conferences similar to Google Hangouts, with Reflap’s Kickback feature. With Kickback, you can have up to four friends in the group chat, and anyone who knows the link can join in without having to sign up.
Reflap runs on Flash and requires you to use a desktop with a webcam to enjoy video chats. The idea of having a permanent address to receive video calls makes it a worthwhile alternative to Skype or Facebook. However, the app may have missed the boat by not having a mobile option.
Reflap is a nice app for social video chatting, especially if you are looking for something that just works on your browser. The fact that you do not have to sign up to join a Kickback or a Quick Call reduces a lot of hassles. So if you are looking for a quick way to call your friends, then this app is for you.
