Sidecar allows people to make phone calls and share live
See What I See video, brilliant photos, contact details, and location information while they talk. Calls between Sidecar users are free anywhere in the world. Sidecar users can also call anyone in the US or Canada for free, even if the recipient of the call does not have the app.
With Sidecar, people can call and share:
• See What I See Video: She amazing real-time videos.
• Photos: Snap brilliant pictures, or share photos from their phone’s library.
• Locations: See where you are in relation to each other, and share locations.
• Contact Information: Pass along and integrate contacts from their phone’s address book.
• Whisper Text: Send a private text message to another Sidecar user during a call.
And the price is unbeatable:
• Sidecar users can call each other anywhere in the world for free
• Sidecar users can call regular phones numbers in the US or Canada for free over Wi-Fi.
The ability to send pictures and location directly from within a call is nice. But the implementation is lacking. Sidecar uses phone numbers to identify users but never verifies them. This presents the risk that people impersonate each other. Also, it’s unclear how multiple devices/phones with the same number are handled. Sidecar goes through some VoIP on the backend when on WiFi, but I don’t want to use another VoIP service. The rotary interface is gimmicky; this is the kind of app you give to your mother, but the rotary interface is likely confusing. And the app is slow to start, slow to connect, and connections are not reliable. Overall, a calling app like this would be a nice thing to have. But Sidecar looks like a dialing app with aspirations of turning into a VoIP service or social network or something and that is a stretch. I’m hoping someone will create an app like Sidecar without the complexity or tie-ins, and with a better UI and, most importantly, better security.
This app has amazing potential although there are still some buggy aspects. Download it and give it a try. Phone calls are free and the sharing of live video, pictures, and locations is extremely useful. I really like this app.
