How does this work?
Clicking the “Test drive now” button launches a copy of this app on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2), a web service that provides on-demand compute capacity in the cloud for developers. When you interact with the simulated phone using your mouse and keyboard, we send those inputs over the Internet to the app running on Amazon EC2 — just like your mobile device would send a finger tap to the app. Our servers then send the video and audio output from the app back to your computer. All this happens in real time, allowing you to explore the features of the app as if it were running on your mobile device.

Product Description

This app is for informational purposes only. It contains a short report that compares the real world performance of the most popular video calling apps for Android phones: Hangouts (formerly Google Talk), ooVoo, Skype, Tango and WeChat. These apps all have between 10-50 million users on Andoid devices (Samsung, HTC, Acer, Asus, LG, Motorola, Sony) alone, and are cross-platform apps (can call apps on Apple iPhone and iPad, Windows phone and Blackberry devices.

The report contains test results for calls of varying length made through the apps on WiFi, while recording the amount of data the apps use per minute to make video calls. The report also shows the battery and RAM usage of the apps.

We live in a time of incredible access to information due to the internet. However, often the quality of information cannot be verified or guaranteed, as anyone can provide the information, without being required to substantiate it. Reliable information about software and mobile apps is fairly rare. This series of reviews provides an objective and empirically based way of assessment for consumers to make more informed decisions.

sorry to give a negative rating but I really didn't see the point in having this app and waste of storage/RAM. Hopefully it will help someone else? but I didn't understand using the space up for something you can just google an answer for. Sorry
