Gets the job done, but has downsides 3/5
The app does what it HAS to do, but there are a few things that need improvement:
Every time I join a call, it asks for my name. Why can't it remember my name?
When I have video off, and the speaker off, I hold the phone up to my ear to listen to calls. The screen doesn't blank, so it drains battery life, and my phone gets pretty warm during a 20 minute call.
"Send it to Zoom, Box 0 21 ..." 5/5
OK so that's a song from the children's PBS show Zoom (for those of us lucky enough to be at our most impressionable mental state in the late 1970s early 1980s...insert plethora of reasons we are in therapy here).
However "send it to zoom" maybe need be their tagline. I've sent my access codes (i'm sorry but the code is not recognized) ; my dropped phone calls, my non working audio devices , my Device not found video tools and my hopes wishes and dreams... to a dozen enterprise and personal Tele and video conferencing systems over the years. And if I never have to use any of them ever again I'll be a happy person.
At least for now zoom has my heart.
A program that loads on most every any device quickly and without constant error messages or updates.
A company that seems to think about the needs of the many and not the needs of their pocketbook.
For those supporting or implementing solutions utilizing zoom, an evolving but not unmanageable choice of settings and options to opt into or out of as you so need. Including opting into system status updates for the few-n-far between-n-usually invisible issues Zoom happens to cause as well as updates The myriad of issues beyond their creation , like you know Amazon crashing the Internet for hours which upon first glance looks like zoom is down, not (nod to SNL)
A communication tool that figures out the best Mike speakers and video device available and connects them automatically, with informs you of the choice and prompts for changes when available.
Web-based tool with the ability to reconnect you automatically when network or web issues break the connection, yaazz!
A web conference tool that allows 200+ simultaneous HD video streams that automatically adjust for low band-width and make you look like a superstar instead of jaundice or ghostly as some FaceSkipEx things might do. (OK Z👀M may not be utopia quite yet. Since they have a little to no control over the bazaar facts that most office spaces conference centers, hotel rooms etc. seem to have green or yellow tinted paint or wallpaper; back-lighting, often fluorescent at that…but I'm sure they're looking into it with a nice paradigm shift option to have the "green" curtain behind you and choose the background atmosphere of your imagination (Mine may always include blue for me to make my eyes pop).
And many more… Zoom gets seven out of five stars from this devoted fan.
Pardon typos and any offenses to the English grammar and spelling police; I'm not spending mas tiempo editing this thing. Be good to you today , Hugs 🤗
Game changer 5/5
By OG Mandino
This allows me to conduct meetings on the fly from my phone if I'm not able to be at my computer. I can still upload my presentations from my phone without missing a beat. I have never seen anything like this before.
Lost functionality 1/5
Since the new update I am unable select to "All Panelists and Attendees" option in chat portion on the iPhone app.
A better Flow 3/5
Zoom cloud meeting is one of my favorite apps I've used it for work and I've been using it for years in my personal life. The only complaint that I would have is the fact that if you were in a large group of people in the room that from the messaging screen you can't click on the persons name and it pull up there cam. I have talked to many many people in this in the future that everyone would love to see it would make it 10 times easier than having to search through all the names of all the active cams.
Easy setup & use. Top quality video. 5/5
By 📱iPhone user
Top video and audio quality. Easier to see yourself and others. Text chat functional has been improved, as has contact list (but both aren't "perfect" yet). But I use this app a lot.
Zoom for iPhone is my go-to app best for spontaneous video calling and also screen sharing presentations.
✅ For corporate videoconferencing, the Zoom platform (desktop and mobile) is far superior in quality, reliability, and cost.
Zoom seems use able what you think ? 5/5
Honestly in GoodFaith
Some poor interface features 2/5
By a daily telecon-er
There are some good features in Zoom, such as any one can call in and wait in the "waiting meeting" for the host to start a meeting. However, one can get rather annoyed by the following:
The list of Zoom Telecons one has been invited to is not available in the App. As a result, it is difficult for one to join a meeting - one has to locate the invitation email, find the meeting ID, manually input the ID ...
You can't save a Telecon template either. If you are creating a reoccurring Telecon, you will have to spend much more time.
Nearly 50% of the time we have been using Zoom, the audio quality has been poor. About every minute or so, a few seconds of the audio are corrupted.
This app is amazing, quick, easy to use, amazing functionalities, it allows me to bring together the people I need to see as well as providing a way for people to find me at any time. I love this app, I don't think the rating system quite showcases just how much. :) it is a true life saver for anyone that just wants to connect and doesn't have the resources to make it happen. Spanning all borders, and all limitations that a physical meeting space would create, Zoom opens up the world and offers a platform for limitless growth and sharing among all communities. Lets share, our businesses, our lives, our communities, let's grow together, thanks in large part to apps like this!!!
Zoom Zoom Zoom, Off we go!
Best I've Tried 5/5
By Jolly Roger 1
And I've tried WebEx and Joinme. Gotomeetings was just too expensive. Zoom has great features with great video quality and nice audio options. Tried it for free couple of days ago and liked it so much I purchased the Pro package.
App is not working correctly after you will receive incoming cell phone call 1/5
By Vadim Peskov
After cell phone incoming call audio in app is not working!!! Only complete restart of the app is helping!
By far the best video conferencing app on the market. Top notch app with top notch support.
Zoom just works 5/5
Every time, with the highest quality, Zoom reminds us how much more productive video/web conferencing can make us. I love that I can consume Zoom my way I wish.
It Works!! 5/5
Either starting, joining or sharing content in meetings, this app doesn't disappoint.
Reliable app 5/5
Most reliable video conferencing app I have ever used on iPhone.
Like Zoom well enough but can't record meetings from app 3/5
I want recording functionality from the app so I don't need to be tethered to my desk to make an audio recording
1.5 years in, still no 12.9" iPad Pro support and no split-screen support 3/5
By Alex Perlei
This ostensibly professional-oriented application, targeted at business/enterprise environment, and aiming to take full advantage of iOS platform, still does not support the flagship professional-oriented iOS device, and the most important productivity feature in iOS - full one and a half YEARS since their introduction, and one major version change since then.
One could understand such omissions for an app that is targeted primarily at iPhone, or does its work in the background (like a music or ambient sound app), or an app developed by a small indie shop, or an app that is a mere sideshow for its big-buck developer (like Google Docs). But neither of these excuses apply here - it's an actively developed, non-indie app, more suitable for iPad than iPhone, and the kind that would be most useful side-by-side with Mail or Excel or Slack.
Split-screen and the big iPad were made for apps like this! Imagine if Skype didn't support the camera in 1.5 years since iPad 2 came out, or AutoCAD didn't support the Pencil by now. Inexcusable.
By I hate textPlus
I really like this app but I wish when I'm on the app I would get a notification when someone messages me especially if I am messaging someone then someone else messages me I don't know who messaged me
This is a great time saver 5/5
It really helps me to get all of my meetings in order !
Good for the business wo(man)
Awesome app. Great quality 5/5
I used to use Cisco Webex and when o switched to zoom I couldn't believe the quality and the support. Excellent company. The compression and delivery is great. Customer for life.
very good app 4/5
great app so far.
TV producer 5/5
The easiest, most simple to use and BEST quality communication tool ever. Stunning quality picture and crystal clear voices. I just LOVE this app!!!!
iPhone screen share needs PC 1/5
Didn't know you need a PC for iPhone screen share to work.... False advertisement
Productive and useful app. 4/5
I understand meetings and keeping your company communicating continually is not a easy task. In my trade Technicans are usually in the office for 5-10 per day. We tried scheduling a Monday meeting from 630-715am. The only issue with this is, in the construction industry 6am-7am is the normal on site time. Also justifying 45minutes of OT a week for 12-15 guys was not very cost effective. Now all the guys can get to the job site, the foreman gets them going.Then Management can have a 30min productivity, schedule and goal completion meeting.All the while still on site to answer questions for the Techs.
"Wish I thought of this". Good luck.
Love it! 4/5
I love the zoom app and use it all the time. The only reason I did not give it 5* is because it does not make it easy doing a zoom call from an iPad using a powerpoint. I have tried it several different ways and all it seems to do is roll the pictures from top to bottom.
gives error 1/5
connection failed... network is active and not blocked
Was awesome... before the fall of personal audio listening capabilities. 2/5
The app was truly innovative, and an awesome way for groups of friends, colleagues, and families to connect on a large scale video calling platform. What was the best part, in my personal opinion, what that mobile device users could launch personal music players such as iTunes and SoundCloud while connected to a zoom room meeting, and listen to their high quality music while video chatting. This feature has been eliminated with the latest update however, and now any audio files that are able to to play while in a meeting are drastically reduced in sound quality and volume level. Another major disappointment is the lack of the users ability to play their audio files to the room from a mobile device. I had high hopes for this platform. Apparently my optimism was not enough.
Zoom is so easy to use, and it's really great video quality on the mobile app, as opposed to the native iPhone video call offering. I can use it for business or personal meetings with family and friends and easily call them or message them to join. I highly recommend this app!
Mobile screen share 2/5
I love this platform but not being able to adequately share my iPhone or iPad screen when android users can with ease is incredibly frustrating. Please allow this feature for iPhone and iPads.
Easy to use and it's a great tool to communicate!
Love this app! 5/5
Fun fun fun
Best Video Conferencing on the Market 5/5
By MWL in NYC
We have tried everything for our Association's meeting and Zoom is by far the best. We use it 3-4 hours per day for spontaneous meetings, scheduled meetings, and eSeminars. The HD quality and audio are excellent! I would highly recommend Zoom!
Love the Zoom app! 5/5
Makes meeting, chatting, scheduling so easy no matter where you are.
Love zooming 5/5
What an excellent tool!
Breakout Rooms! 5/5
I believe the value of breakout rooms for engaging online students cannot be overstated. ZOOM makes it oh so easy. Thank you.
By Angels world
Love the support, features and options. Easy to download, navigate and customize settings!
Socialize, relaxe, engage all while naked. 4/5
By Koran lile
Best way to work, play and be free and buck naked. If that's what you want. 😛🤓
Great Meeting App - Needs Split View Support 3/5
Great app! For the iPad, can you please provide support for Split View so people can can take notes in a notes app while in the meeting.
Also, it'd be great if it supported the newer, expanded keyboard.
My secret weapon in online teaching! 5/5
Since discovering Zoom, I have had amazing success with my online students! We have weekly meetings, individual meetings, small group meetings, etc!
My students see my face, hear my voice and develop a relationship with me which is closer than they normally have in the face-to-face classroom!
My community college system has a link within the LMS, but I actually started with a free individual plan, then upgraded to a paid pro plan and need to investigate how to link better. None the less, this is so indispensable to my style of teaching that I don't mind paying $14.99/month!
Crisp HD, Unfailing Audio & Chat like Slack 5/5
By Best task list ever!!
Imagine Slack's app collapsed into the most reliable video conferencing app, and you will have a great picture of Zoom's app. You can chat with anyone in your company, and transition easily into a video or phone call. Zoom is the easiest way to connect your teams from their computers, conference rooms & mobile devices.
Love this Video Conf App!! 5/5
Of all the video conf / online mtg. apps I’ve used, this one is by far the best quality. Great video and audio. So convenient to be able to take a meeting while on the go. Easy to use and downloaded first time in a few seconds. Highly recommend!
Best meeting/webinar software ever! 5/5
By Shari Clare
Outstanding video and audio quality and extremely easy to use
Excellent and easy to use
Excellent App! My go to for communication! 5/5
Love this app! It makes on the go communication so easy! Video conference, web conference, audio conferencing or IM...Thank you Zoom!
It just works 5/5
Every single time. Bravo. I even did a call from Wireless on the plane. Try that with another product
The best I have ever used! 5/5
Zoom is by far the best conferencing solution I have ever used! The quality is second to none and the features are always innovative. I would highly suggest Zoom to anyone.
Works everywhere 5/5
I love that I can join from anywhere and participate in meetings from my iPhone or iPad. Even annotation! Car mode is also really handy
Seen the message feature 5/5
It will be great if you add a feature that you can know if some one you are chatting with has read the message or not, cheers!
Great except for bug 3/5
Has excellent interface and great video and sound. Has a bug however. When sending invites some people on iOS devices get an error that their operating system is not supported. Tech support was dismissive, and told me to work around it by opening the application first and entering the meeting number, which won't help new users anyway, who cannot follow the link to download due to the error message. Error may be limited to certain email clients who receive the invite, as not everyone experiences the bug.
By ATL Ladybug
Hasn't worked since I downloaded it, and for some reason I can't delete it.
