Appear In seems to fully understand that reducing friction is an important element to an apps success as the cost or functionality. Appear.In makes connecting a video conference with up to eight people super easy and with no login required.
Here is how it works:
Head to their website, Appear.in
Create a room with an address you create. Example: Appear.In/TalkTime
Share the link with others
That is it. So simple and quick. Their servers are fast and it works well even in China!
If you decide you want to sign up for the service you can create your own room, choose a background, save contacts, have a chat feature, etc.
Lastly, they just came out with their iOS app.
