Im Live Website Review
Unlike most adult cam sites, Im Live is not all hardcore and explicit. Since it also provides opportunities for people to find love and romance, its overall purpose is not focused solely on hook ups and sex, although love and romance basically lead to the same goals. For as long as its users can remember, Im Live’s interface has been the same, until 2014. It was a big year for everyone concerned, especially the avid fans, because the website went through some much-needed changes, from the design to the functionalities. Why is Im Live so much better now?
The look may have little to do with the real purpose of the site, but you have to admit that the easier you can navigate through the page, the better your user experience will be. Since its overhaul, convenience has become part of the game. One the Live Cam page, members are now presented with several ways to browse the website.
A list view of all the webcam performers is the oldest style, and likely to be the standard of other cam sites. Most people may have grown accustomed to it, but they would choose other options if there is anything else presented to them.
A tile view is what you would normally see in Jasmin.com and other similar websites. In this view, performers are arranged in a grid using thumbnails. This gives you a better view of all the models, but you need to click on a thumbnail or hover your mouse over it to get any information about the performer.
A gallery view is a sort of mashup between a list and tile. This means you get a good view of all the models plus any vital details about them. Moreover, the layout is well-aligned for your viewing pleasure.
In a multiview, you not only see models, but also a peek into different live chat rooms. Whether free or paid (private), you have an easy option to engage in a conversation with a model without the need to visit other pages.
Other view options are Hot Spots, Party, and Your List, which refers to your own customized list.
Im Live is not 100% free. Only the first 20 seconds of every live adult cam streaming session would cost you nothing. If you want to see more, or engage in a 1-on-1 chat with a performer, you must be ready to part with your money. Just a little bit of it, anyway. The cost of a full-length show can range between $3 and $4 per minute, which may seem pricey. Compared to the amount of money you end up spending on a dinner date, however, this is pretty affordable. Besides, with the awesome stream quality you will be treated to, the price will be worth it. Because you get a preview of the show before you pay up, you are also assured that you will get your money’s worth.
Im Live also offers “happy hour” cams, where you get to join in a group chat. Since it’s not exclusive, prices are much lower. What is even better is that there is a “controller” that ensures you get a chance to talk with the performer. You get a few minutes to tell her what you want her to do for you.
Videos and pictures
When you sign up with Im Live, you will have access to almost 30,000 short video promos. These should be enough to get you all pumped all day. But, if you feel like the number of short videos are still not enough to feed your voyeuristic cravings, check out over 46,000 recorded shows. For some sexy, erotic stills, there are over a million pictures that you can view spread out on each model’s gallery, which are usually a combination of profile pics and pictures taken from webcam shows.
What is even better is that you have the option to record every webcam session that tickles your fancy for later viewing. With thousands of performers, you are sure to have plenty of recordings.
Do you want to talk to some of the performers? Im Live has different live chat rooms that you can join. Most are free, until you decide to take the conversation somewhere private. This would normally cost anywhere between $3 and $4 per minute. If you’re not yet ready to spend a lot, you can take advantage of the Happy Hour system where you can enjoy a live nude show with other users. It’s not all that exclusive, but at least you get your few minutes of private time with a model.
The Live Sex Chat section of Im Live offers a wide range of performers you can talk to, female or male, with kinks that vary from vanilla to fetish.
Im Live is now available for your mobile device, allowing you to watch adult cam shows on the go. It is available on Android, iPhone, iPad, and even on devices that don’t have Flash. This would make your Im Live experience more enjoyable than ever.
What are the downsides of Im Live?
Before you get to view recorded shows, you would have to get some credits. In some cases, the quality may not be worth what you pay for, so think twice before you pay up for a recorded show.
View feeds can be viewed standard or supersize. Between the two, the former is better as the streams are smoother and clearer. But it usually comes down to the kind of equipment the models use to put on a live show.
When viewing live streaming on you mobile phone, there is no free 20-second preview of the show. You will be charged right away. In terms of the chat, you might also experience some problems, especially in terms of stability. Some functionalities are also limited because of the screen size.
Despite some technical issues, the overall impression of Im Live is pretty good. It is impressive at certain levels, especially when it comes to the paid subscription. After all, you do get a preview before you decide to pay up.
