A different way to instant message...with video

Boot Camp feature for Tuesday, September 9, 2014

A different way to instant message…with video.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    If you’re longing for the days of face to face contact instead of texting and email…you aren’t alone.    Enter a new video messaging app called Glide….which may not bring you face to face…but…hey, it’s a start.   CEO Ari Roisman….

“You just open the application and then press on the name of one of your friends or a recent chat.  And then you just tap the big button and you start talking.  And the moment you press record, you’re actually streaming that video live.  And what that means is that literally within a second, wherever the recipient is in the world they can already watch that video.”

Or if they aren’t immediately available…the message gets stored in the cloud for later viewing.    It’s available for iOS and Android.  There’s more info at Glide.me.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.
