What can you use the app for?

TinyChat is an online chat application which can be run from within your web browser. This means that it’s possible to use it without downloading any software to your computer. All of the chat rooms are disposable which means you can use them once and then get rid of them. This makes it really easy to start an online chat with anyone; it also makes it possible to talk to someone without handing out your contact details. Security is very important these days and TinyChat can make security much easier.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

TinyChat was founded in January 2009 by Daniel Blake. The application is a disposable chat room application which makes it possible to talk to anyone without revealing your contact details.

What are the differences to other apps?

TinyChat is different to other online chat applications because you can create your own chat rooms. All of the chat rooms can be disposable which means you can throw them away when you have finished with them. This makes it a useful application for talking to people that you don’t know very well. You can give everyone a disposable chat room and then decide whether or not you want to share your contact details with them in the future.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

TinyChat has a nice look and feel to it and is very simple to use. It’s particularly easy because you don’t need to sign up. You just need to enter a chat room name and then give your contacts the URL. This is simply a matter of copying and pasting the address to give to someone you’ve met.

How does the registration process work?

You don’t need to register to use TinyChat as the only thing you need to do is choose a name for a room. You can then paste this and give it to your contacts. TinyChat also offers professional accounts which you can register for. These include five chat rooms which are saved, enhanced security systems and higher quality video. Registering for a pro account is very easy; however the form isn’t designed very well as the text boxes don’t match up with where they are supposed to go. The password field is also plain text which is strange and worrying. Pro accounts are available for a monthly subscription.

What does it cost to use the application?

TinyChat is completely free to use for regular accounts, however they also offer professional accounts. Professional TinyChat accounts cost $14.95 per month through Google checkout. Professional accounts come with five chat rooms which you can save and use time and time again.

Who would you recommend the application to?

TinyChat is ideal for anyone who wants to talk to people on the internet while protecting their contact information. You might already have a disposable email address, so why not have a disposable chat room too. This is also one of the easiest ways for anyone to chat on the internet.

  • TinyChat is more than a simple internet chat room as it also features support for your webcam and microphone. This means that you can have a video chat without having to download any software.
  • TinyChat professional allows you to create up to five rooms which are saved and only yours. It also includes password protection and advanced security features.
  • Just copy the URL and give it to whoever you want to chat with. They will automatically be logged into your chat room and ready to start talking.
  • Perhaps one of the best features is that you don’t have to download anything to use the application. As long as you have a supported browser you can easily chat to anyone wherever they are in the world.
