User Reviews:

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.

 Doesn’t accept my phone number and has my country code wrong in the list. Haven’t been able to use it but by the looks of other reviews its not worth it. I don’t see what this app does that’s usefull that skype doesn’t do?
Just downloaded this and tested it with my girlfriend, so from my nexus s to her se ray it worked fine. Both had wifi on but it was not clear if 3g or wifi was being used. Then got my son to put it on his iPod touch and it wouldn’t call me. So it seems if you are not in the USA then you can’t use the wifi option which seems very strange. I want this to work as it would be brilliant to have android to ISO wifi calls and video.
