General

Once again this was entering new territory for me, my first Webcam site review! So letís see if ImLive.com can leave a lasting impression.

The site has a very professional look, with great navigation throughout. The memberís home page at first seem cluttered, but on closer inspection it has all the necessary links and information you would want: access to your account, favourite hosts, your content etc., along with special offers and their newest feature Celebrity Porn Stars.

Thereís only one word that describes the Support pages on ImLive.com, WOW! I know you might be thinking that was bit of an anticlimax but believe me thatís the first word that came to me. I just donít know where to start! It has everything you could possibly want: Toll free phone support from all over the world, email support, a technical help guide covering topics such as dial-up and satellite internet connections, ďI canít text chat with hosts but I can Video Chat with themĒ. Iím stuck for words to describe the depth they have gone to, to assist their members; you really have to see it for yourself.

Content

Firstly this is how the site works, you can join the site free of charge and youíre able to browse through the girls and enter the free text chats. When you want to watch live, which is where all the good action happens, then you need to have some prepaid credit. Each girl charges by the minute and prices range from $0.98 to $4.80 so be sure to get your moneys worth, donít mess around with chat and foreplay!

In total the site currently has an impressive 16,838 hosts across 14 categories, the main ones being: Girl Alone, Shy Girl Alone, Guy Alone (Straight) and Guy Alone (Gay) others include Celebrity Porn Stars, Shemales and Fetish & BSDM. When browsing through the list of girls available online, and those that werenít, it was clear they had a good variety. I logged in at different times of the day (am and pm) and each category appeared to have hosts available online.

Each host has a nice detailed profile page which gives you the performerís vital statistics such as: age, sexual preference, what turns them on and off, appearance (Cup Size, Eye colour etcÖ). By doing this it gives members a clear description of what the girls are into, which prevents those boring few minutes at the beginning of each live chat when all you want to be doing is watching her performing (that might just be me!). There is also a rating system as well as the option to add them to your Favourites List.

Video Section

ImLive.com uses Adobe Flash Player for its chat interface, which is very user friendly software. Alongside the live webcam you have the usual ability to text chat with the girls, request certain things or just get to know them. Another feature with this interface is the ability to watch the live performance full size, which isnít great and will tend to be very pixelated; I would have liked to see the screen option go to 640x480 rather then straight to full screen. Members also have the ability to switch on their own webcam so performers can see what they are getting up to, not something I would do however I can see the appeal.

To make the experience even more realistic, you have the option to ďTipĒ your host; how great is that nice touch! I guess it depends how tight you are.

If watching live isnít your cup of tea then you are able to watch Recorded Live Sessions and the prices start from around $2.98 and go up to $5.80 (the highest I found) per minute, pretty expensive. You might as well watch it live, pay less and have a much better interaction with the hosts.

The majority of hosts provide members with free promo videos lasting no more the 1 minute, so from here you can again get an indication of what she/he looks like and how they perform in front of the camera etc...

Photo Section

This section is known on ImLive.com as Snapshot Gallery, and is basically snapshots from the live video chats the hosts have participated in. To date the gallery has 383,690 images, so there are lots to view, and all are searchable through the 14 categories. The size (322x242) and quality isnít great, however donít let this put you off as it gives you a great insight as to what the girls look like.
