Everyone Needs This New App

Remember when the world gained access to 3-way calls? Ok probably not, since it seems to be have been around for a while. There was a time when you would have to call multiple friends one at a time in order to figure out what the latest gossip was or what the plan was for that weekend……..then having to recall people whom you called before you got the updated news (sounds never ending!). Fast forward a little bit from that invention, and we are given the gift of video chat – whether you ever dabbled with Oovoo or are a regular with Skype and Facetime, video calling allows for easy communication whether you are in a long-distance relationship or just miss your high school friends. But what if you want to video chat with all your friends at once, and what if you don’t know if they are available to chat? If only there was a way to combine the usefulness of 3-way calling with video chat and the “online” feature of FB chat…. WELL NOW THERE IS!

Meet HOUSEPARTY: An app that allows you to connect with your friends through 1 click, allowing you to virtually party with your peeps no matter what time of day.
