iFriends is one of the largest and longest running live webcam chat sites around. They feature hundreds of thousands of performers in their archive and you'll find hundreds online at any one time. The foundation of the site is a pay-per-minute system for live webcam chat shows and they have additional premium monthly VIP and Elite memberships that offer extra services, features, tools, and content.
Live Webcam Shows, Lots of Models Online at Any One Time.
iFriends has been around for more than a decade reaching back to the late 1990's and they have always been a leader in terms of the number of performers online and in their archives. As you would expect, and probably want, the Women Home Alone is the largest category by far with solo female models. There are also other fetishes, lesbians, couples, etc. however the solo girls are the dominant section. You'll find a great mix of chick from all over the works with the majority being 18-35 and with lots of cute/sexy chicks to choose from.
Easy to Use Chat/Cam Interface, Some HD & HQ Quality.
While browsing the list of models they have the name, age, location of model and show whether she is available. From there the girl's specific page provides a little more detail including the per-minute pricing rate. The streams loaded quickly for me and the chat/interface was simple enough to use. This is coming from a non-techie so if I found it easy then everyone else should as well. HD and HQ performers are tagged with those labels and there are some with very nice looking and smooth video feeds which is good to see from a live cam site.
Vast Array of Additonal Content & Features.
So many cam sites out there have just a few dozen models for per-minute shows and then that's it. iFriends really has so much going on like Performer Profiles, Fan Clubs, Archive Content, Awards, Videos/Photos, and more. Also there are Cam2Cam, zoomable cams, and other tools that are part of the VIP and Elite membership levels so the shows themselves have more features, options, and tools that can be accessed for those who desire them.
Other Good Stuff:
In addition to browsing all live performers they have niche breakdown by type of action/fetish, ethnicity, and a section for the performers with high-quality cams.
The My VideoChat Wallet is a pre-purchase credit systemt that allows you to buy minutes ahead of time instead of having your credit card charged directly for each show.
Expensive Site, Questionable Per-Minute Billing.
The per-minute billing here rankled me quite a bit. To track my history clearly I used the MyVideoChat Wallet where you can pre-purchase credits and see an activity log. First, I went for a chat that was $2.99/minute and after spending about 2 minutes in there I logged out and checked my wallet only to see my account was charged $14.95 (5 minutes?!). Double checking my work I tried a girl that was $3.09/minute and after getting a "Restricted Access" error and not being able to even get to see her at all and closing my browser after maybe 15 seconds my account was charged $6.18 (i.e. 2 minutes!). I've looked at many other cam show sites wand never run into this type of billing situation. It seems like they're working on double or triple time racking up a minute of time in like 20 or 30 seconds of real time. If you're not using the MyVideoChat wallet these guys are charging your card directly since they have their own billing and your credit card is saved in the admin. Billing and charges on your account is something to pay very close attention to here.
Overwhelming Options; 3 Membership Levels, Fan Clubs, Etc.
Right off the bat there are three membership choices: Basic, ClubVIP, and Club Elite. Basic allows you to get access and going with per-minute shows and then the ClubVIP and Elite have additional HD, Cam2Cam, Enhanced features, etc and they are based on monthly pricing. Beyond that you have model fan clubs, HD showcases, EliteCam viewer, replays, and all sorts of other content. Some are tied to per-minute pricing and others to the VIP or Elite memberships so it's a lot to hash out and things are quite complex.
Cam Quality Varies From Model to Model.
With so many performers you will see quite a range of quality on the webcam feeds. I ran into everything from a high-quality quick loading smooth stream to a somewhat grainy looking video that was average quality down to some that gave me a restricted access error where I couldn't view the show at all. The ups-and-downs of the quality is simply something that goes with the territory for this type of collection with so many girls from all over on their own cams.
Navigation and design could be fine-tuned since they do have a lot going on. It takes some time to get your bearings with the shows, other content, membership options, etc.
One of the largest & longest running live webcam show sites however it is quite expensive.
For live webcam sites like this the entertainment value of the shows varies from user-to-user and model-to-model. The best thing we can do in a review like this is hammer explain about the infrastructure and options. The main positives are the number of performers and the variety of content that is available both in terms of the live shows the additional features. The main negative is that this is an expensive site. The additional features cost extra with the monthly premium memberships on top of the per minute pricing. My experience with the per-minute charges wasn't very good as it seemed I was overcharged. So while the site is bigger and badder than most other in this genre the trade-off is that they upsell for all the additional stuff and it gets pricey very quickly.
