Interface & Usability:
A shiny pink, purple and
white color scheme which makes me want to eat candy floss for some
reason :-/ The site is extremely well laid out and is deceptively
simple to navigate. All the main sections can be found down the
left hand side of the screen.
The main pages are professionally designed and are a joy to use.
Even though there are hundreds of categories to search through,
its all logically laid out and easy to search around.
Members profiles are large, detailed and some have their own fan
clubs set-up where you can vote for them, watch past videos, see
pictures of them, download goodies like screen savers, desktop wallpapers,
polls, calendars etc. You can read their bio, daily diary, discussion
board, sign-up for their newsletter, audio and video greeting, read
other members reviews of this person, view a members other friends
and generally have fun and flirt with whoever you want.
You can also book private sessions with a chat host if you want
to get intimate with a person or get to know them better in private.
The technology behind this site is really something else. It gives
AdultActionCam a run for its money easily and 8 million members
seem to be agreeing with me :-)
Both members can see each other, no software is required to be
downloaded, just make sure you have the latest version of the macromedia
flash player installed. You also need a webcam if you want them
to see you. But its not necessary for you to see them if that's
what you want.

iFriends is the largest and fastest-growing online web conferencing
("video chat") community in the world, and is ranked by
audience-metric services such as Nielsen/NetRatings and Ranking.com
in the top 200 most popular sites on the internet.
Launched on Valentine's Day, 1998 as a videochat matchmaking service

evolved into a substantial community of diverse interests and content
categories, currently numbering more than two million registered
users and more than 200,000 registered video "chathosts",

iFriends is positioned at the convergence of several exciting,

and hundreds of thousands of registered users who visit iFriends
every day to enjoy the many free benefits of membership in the iFriends
community, including free videochat rooms, free bulletin boards,
the iFriends "Marketplace" shopping area, and free webcam
What we liked about the site:
Seriously LARGE membership
base, 8 million people +, some members can speak multiple languages
so it's very international.
FREE sign-up (Age verification needed via credit card due to some
members offering adult shows.) This impressed me a lot as many sites
I've looked at just require your details and let you in, which isn't
ideal for minors.
You are never charged anything unless you decide to pay for advice
or a chat session with a member that charges. This is clearly labeled
and you are warned not to go any further into a session if you don't
want to be charged. There is no membership fee and the basic account
never runs out.
This site does dating, relationship advice, sexual health advice,
adult dating for both males and females. Also covers every subject
under the sun, dating related or otherwise.
Reputable company and has been online for a very long time.
Quick 2 page signup process.
High quality, well designed site with large profile pictures and
excellent use of cutting age audio / video technology to bring dating
and the web into the next century.
Large sense of community, all live and in realtime. You will NOT
have a problem making friends and partners on this site.
Site didn't even slow down during busy times in the evening.
Single click account cancellation if you find ifriends isn't for
What we didn't like about the site:
ifriends is one of the best
live webcam communities online today. It caters for both male and
females who are looking for help or information on any topic that
can be thought of in a professional capacity.
It also has some of the cutest girls and guys looking for an adult
online encounter or just to flirt and make friends. These are all
normal people in their homes, there are no hired models or professionals
The excellent use of the latest webcam technology and the shear
size and popularity of the site gives this site a 5 star rating.
The customer support is second to non and the un-subscribe procedure
is as easy as a single click on a URL.
We enjoyed our time reviewing ifriends and frequently pop back
there from time to time to find out what's the latest gossip and
catch up. We suspect you will too :-)
