WISH LIST: These Features Would Make Airtime Awesome

jim carrey

Airtime is in the spotlight since its launch yesterday.

While it’s still a very young product, we can’t help but want more out of it.

These are the features we think would make it an excellent social video product.

Bring it to mobile devices

As of right now, Airtime is strictly a desktop application. Opening it up to mobile users will attract a new audience and will also keep them engaged more often.

Choose the location of the people you talk to

It'd be really cool to tell Airtime 'Only pair me with people in Germany,' or 'Get me in touch with someone in Wyoming.'

Let people play games against each other

We would love some sort of mechanic to let people play basic card or board games with each other while they're chatting.

Record interesting conversations

If you have a really memorable interaction with someone, we'd like the option to save it for posterity.

Talk to more than one person at a time

Why not borrow from Google Hangouts on this?

Tell us what the achievements are for

That star button in the bottom middle of the screen defies explanation. Clicking it seems to give you 'points,' but we have no idea what they're for.

Thinking about jailbreaking your phone?
