Despite generally being a rather selfish, miserly race in most other areas of life, when it comes to the digital domain we just can’t help sharing. But, limited to only sharing piecemeal when on the move, imagine a world where you could share all and sundry simultaneously. Now stop imagining and step in the Sidecar…
You know how frustrating it can be: you’re a borderline Narcissist and you’re out and about doing something mildly interesting with not enough people watching. Desperate to share it all with someone in a real time environment, you turn to your smartphone and phone a friend. But that’s not enough sharing! So what if you could call that friend for free over VoIP AND send them photos AND share your live location on interactive maps in case you want to meet up AND even stream them live video all while chatting? Now that’s sharing!
This is the seriously social reality of Sidecar – possibly the ultimate app when it comes to that all-important ‘Me, Me, Me!’ Free to download, free to use, and free from data plan usage if you’ve Wi-Fi handy, all you need is your phone, an army of Sidecar-equipped friends and you’re away.
THE BOTTOM LINE
It’s hard to find fault with an app that offers so much for so little, so even though it can be a little buggy and call quality at times can be a tad like talking to a Dalek, it’s fair to say that the pros far outweigh the cons. With an intuitive interface and a flotilla of multifaceted features, Sidecar makes the absolute most of your mobile.
