Spin is a video chat app with a long list of features that makes the connecting with those in other places simpler, realer and more emotional.
Spin connects people from around the world and allows them to have fun together in stunning HD, making physical distance from old and/or new friends all but obsolete. The site (and app) allows you to connect with up to ten different people, and easily share high quality photos, video and audio from your distinct locations. People are already using Spin in innovative, exciting ways. One group of sports fans logs on from wherever they may be located — at the game, on the couch or in the bar — to discuss games as they’re happening live. Another group logs on so that they can cook dinner together, following along with each other’s recipes despite being located miles or kilometers apart. The possibilities truly are endless as to what you can share and do together, as long as you’ve got Spin with you.
Spin brings more than just a simple video feed in order to enhance the experience of live-chatting. There are tons of built-in features to the application, including the ability to draw on the screen, plan events and scroll through photos. The company behind Spin, is passionate about tapping into the emotion of individuals through technology. That’s why the app’s functions seem so natural to use — it’s an attempt to simulate face-to-face human interaction, to make you forget that you’re connecting with friends and family through a smart phone or other device. The app claims to transcend boundaries, and it certainly comes much closer than other applications with a similar aim. If you’ve ever found yourself doing something awesome and wishing that your distant loved ones could be with you as you’re doing it, Spin is what you need to bring them to you.
