    I luv sendin videos msgs on here to my friends n family best thing eva nxt to facetime!!!!! Dwnload nw u wont regret it

  • I love this app

    by Davin Barto

    I absolutely love this app, it's more personal the texting, more personal than calling, and it's exactly like Skype but better because you don't have to wait around for the person to call you or you call them you just send it like a text message but it's a video, and you can look at the video message and respond whenever you want so you don't have to worry about always being on the phone or computer like Skype.

  • Great App

    by Sneakergurl12

    I'm mad I didn't have this sooner. It makes it easy to talk to a person directly but indirectly. You can say exactly what you want to say and not have to wait a long time for a response like when you send videos via text message. This app is awesome!!!!!

  • Love It

    by Very yummy bananas

  • Notification glitch

    by Tena88

    I liked the app until I switched to iPhone! I do not get any notifications for the app whatsoever. I have to find out a week later that I received a message. Please fix this on iPhone.

    by Peggysue6270

    It's better and safer than texting just it still freezes at times....

  • Love it!

    by Hopefulgrl9

    I just love this app! It allows me to easily see my friends and families expressions while texting. No more misunderstood texts. I would have given five stars but sometimes if texting a lot, you'll miss glides and have to exit the app for the messages to register coming in.

  • Really Great!

    by The Morgan Ashley

    I started using Glide as a result of my long-distance relationship, and it has been an incredibly convenient way to keep in touch. It doesn't crash, either, which is always a plus. :)

    by Demetrius Brooks

    I fell in love with this app almost instantly. I only wish there was a better interface and distinction for sending text. Adding an option to send files would make this the best communication app available.

  • Reality Star of MOMs GOT GAME on OWN

    by Pamela McGee

    This is not a paid endorsement. This is the hottest thing out! I LOVE IT! It is better than Instagram.

  • Skype without the commitment!

    by Princess CoCo the 37th

    Easy way to stay in contact with anyone who may have a super busy life. Allows for contact whenever you're available. You don't have to sit at a computer for hours skyping, filling minutes of the conversation with distractions and deadzones. Glide allows for you to send your precise thoughts after you've decided when and what to say! Thanks to the Glide staff for reconnecting me with amazing friends!

  • I love it !

    by Maiineypooh

    I love this app but i think it should be an upgrade as far as you can choose any video to save to your library.

  • Awesome App!

    by The firecracker heat

    My sister lives miles away across the country and with this app, I feel connected with her! I feel like I'm apart of her everyday routine! Glide is great for even just saying hey to friends you can't see all the time!

  • Great idea

  • Great way to communicate!

    by ThousandsofYou

    This app is very beneficial for keeping in touch with people you can't see regularly. It's give you the options of discretion and creating keepsakes with the ability to keep or all video chats. The videos send very quickly. This is a great app!

    It's great


    by Krummit

    I'm half of a long distance relationship and my fiancé has a droid. We were having trouble finding time and the right app to video chat. You guys rocked it. I like it because I can keep the messages or delete them AND it doesn't disappear if I tap on the message by accident. Thank you thank you think you. We were both in tears because we found this app. LOVE IT!!

  • Cool

    by Ashley Jena'

    So Far So Good

  • Accessing Contacts

    by kkn07

    I should not have to share my contacts in order to use the app...not worth it!

  • Not good

    by 94_kev

    When I wanted to Chat it does work

  • Constant notifications whenever someone joins are a pain

    by myMobibleNickname

    Of course you could turn all notifications off for the app, but then you wouldn't get notifications when someone send you a message. There needs to be a setting to make this app less annoying.

  • Love it

    by Monkey diaper women

    It's a good app!(: it needs filters tho especially when ur not looking ur best
