Chat Away with an Innovative HTML5 Chat Widget
Move aside Yahoo Messenger for a new chat widget is conquering every social platform we can think of. It has the capacity to build traffic and make the sites’ social interaction on a “real- time” basis. What application is this? Well, it’s called RumbleTalk, and we are about to find out how awesome this widget really is.
RumbleTalk is a widget that enables its users to have a customized chat designs experience that can be embedded to any social platform available. I was curious on how this application works, and soon I began signing up as a new user. I just entered my email address, password and hit the “Get it, its free” button, and voila! I am now able to use its customized chat designs to my website, Facebook, WordPress or Tumblr pages.
Easy to Customize
After signing in, I was directed to “get your chat” screen with a predefined chat created for me . I can finish the processes here by using the code created for me and add it to my website. I could also choose to use the dashboard screen. This is where I can create more chat rooms or edit my default room, and have my customized chat designs. I started playing the buttons to know what my options are. I discovered that I can log-in using my Facebook or Twitter account. There would not be any trouble remembering what username and password I used when logging in. This also means that I can post any tweets, pages, pictures, or videos that I like from other networking sites to my created room so my friends and guests can see them. Awesome features! The site is not exactly fool-proof, but a little bit of tweaking can do so much.
When I had my customized chat designs set up, I began inviting friends to join me in RumbleTalk. I just wanted to test the basics – the ping time, icons, and if it can play music as well. RumbleTalk did not let me down. It has a fast response time from each user. Basic icons, like the ones in YM, are also available. Alas, I cannot find if it is possible to play music, but alert tones are present. I also like how the chat boxes can just be floating around the same page- just click it and the whole conversation is displayed on the screen. Click it again, and it minimizes to a small balloon icon on the lower part of the screen. I found out that I can embed as many chat rooms as I like on different sites by using just a single account. The widget also comes with an “on-the-go-chat”. It means that I, or any of my friends and users, can still join the conversation, by using any smartphones or tablets. By clicking the QR button and scanning these codes using the phone’s camera, the widget is automatically transferred to your mobile phone. I still have to try this feature though.
Definitely, RumbleTalk is not a waste of space in anyone’s page or blog. It can do exactly what it boasts to do- a unique chat design that suits your taste, creates social interaction among your guests and at the same time, advertises your company to different social platforms. It is very easy to use and takes a very minimal space. It’s a great way to meet new friends too.
