IFriends.com is pretty much the website that started the cam craze. The odds are good that you've heard of it before. They claim to have over 11.8 million members! This is one huge site. Starting this review, I know I won't be able to cover every detail of the site, nor would you want me to. There are so many little goodies here and there that it would take me days to discuss all of them. Likewise, I'm keeping my review to the adult portion of IFriends. I know you're wondering "There's a non-adult section?". Yes, there is, but it's not nearly as active as the adult side. In case you've somehow never heard of IFriends before, it is basically a community of women (and some men) with webcams and the men (and some women) who want to see them. Chicks from all over the world broadcast live shows on their webcams and viewers pay a per minute fee to watch and chat with them. That is really only the beginning of this monster site, though.
Plenty of stars!
IFriends has been around for years and years now; they were the first and they are the biggest. As I mentioned above, there are currently almost 12 million members and 443,000 stars. There are 900 stars currently available for a show at this very moment. "Women Home Alone" make up half of the stars currently broadcasting. Next up would be gender-benders. With this many models online, you can always count on finding someone who will meet your needs and fulfill your fantasies.
Lots of additional content.
In addition to the live cams, iFriends offers members more than 12 million videos and 89 million photos. Keep in mind these are vidcaps, and not actual photos, but there's still a ton to see! There are also chat boards and a "Love and Health" info area to keep you busy between shows.
Some good quality content.
The best you're going to see is in their "HD" section. These are all stars broadcasting with a high definition camera using iFriends special HD software. These scenes look much sharper than what we usually see, although I'll be honest and say that there is still some jerkiness to the movement at times, but the picture is still quite a bit clearer.
Other Good Stuff:
Low price compared to other camsites. There were plenty of stars here charging between $2 and $3 a minute. We've looked at sites charging upwards of $5 a minute, so iFriends is a relative bargain.
Tons of extra goodies! Performers may offer audio, phone calls, cam 2 cam (meaning you can broadcast back to them), multi-angle (meaning the star has up to 4 webcams running at one time so you can enjoy her from different angles), and more. They also note if the star is broadcasting on a high speed internet line.
Good search engine. Whether you're looking for someone with a particular look or cam show feature, the advanced search engine lets you narrow down their huge list of models considerably.
Overwhelming options and design.
There are just so many links, it's hard to know where to go and where to begin. I've visited iFriends plenty of times and even performed here back in the day. Still, it took me quite a while to reorient myself with the site. I'm not even sure what most of the links (Elite Cam Viewer?) and tiny little icons (Easy Cam green light?) are. Everything has a purpose but I think they've just spent the last decade adding new features that the pages are now just overwhelmed with links.
Content quality varies.
How smooth the video looks will depend on your connection and the connection of the star you're watching. There are some stars that are noted as having HD content, as I talked about above, but the vast, vast majority are offering average quality video that can get a bit choppy at times.
Tons of upsells.
Just about everywhere you turn here you'll find some nice little extra that ends up hitting your wallet all over again. Take the Fan Clubs. Many of the models have a Fan Club where you can see more of her content, read her diary, and in general interact more with her. It says "Free" so it sounds good. Click on through and find that it's only free if you spend $30 on her cam that month. Don't pay it and you're charged $30. And that's per model! If you want to join multiple fan clubs, you end up paying $30 per girl. It's like their own little ring of amateur websites. Anyhow, there's always more to spend your money on here.
Can get expensive! Just like on any live cam site, costs can add up quickly. Spend $2-$3 a minute and in 10 minutes you've spent an entire month's membership at a regular paysite.
Even with the cons, it's still a must-see for live cam fans.
IFriends has been around for so long, and I give them a lot of credit for constantly coming up with new ideas and new features for both their members and their models. It's good to see that the price of action hasn't increased too much here, although the constant upsells do get annoying. There are some good user tools for getting around, but the design has never been the strong point of iFriends and things definitely get confusing at times. All in all, the site isn't perfect but no site is. I'd say even with the weaknesses, there's a reason iFriends has been successful for as long as it has and it certainly remains a must-see for fans of live amateur camshows.
