Pros

  • Easy to use: The app is very, very easy to use. Literally just create a chat room (input a name) and access it to chat.
  • Call/video quality: I've experienced better call quality on appear.in than in almost all other chat and video conferencing services out there.

  • XWiki makes it easy to manage semi-structured information, which is at the heart of every knowledge nexus of organizations. It makes it easy to manage in a single system both structured data (such as memberships, projects), and unstructured data.
  • XWiki offers a very rich API for creating enterprise applications quickly that are easy to maintain and evolve collaboratively.
  • XWiki templating and skinning system is extremely flexible and powerful.

Cons

  • Feature-wise, none that I can think of.
Hernán Silva profile photo
  • While the basic pieces are available for turning XWiki into an advanced semantic system, some features could be made available more prominently to the user for easing the use of faceted and typed links, paving the way for a new era of collaborative knowledge sharing.

We are using a larger tool suite that already includes video conferencing instead of our older approach of using different apps from different vendors.appear.in has a simple but great set of features but its pricing scheme is not as scalable as we really need in a 500+ employee company.

Very easy to use, technical and non-technical colleagues have used it with no instructions needed. That says all about the app and services.

Alternatives Considered

appear.in was the least expensive alternative at the time my company used it. It included the right set of features for what we needed.

XWiki key differentiators in my opinion:
  • Fast app development framework with very rich API
  • Open-source strategy, opening the way to collaborative innovation
