Omegle is an app created by Omegle.com LLC. It costs $.99 and is available on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

Functionality:

This app functions exactly like the Omegele.com website, except that it doesn’t have the video feature. Basically it connects you with random strangers, who you then chat with. Omegele.com is mostly used for sexual chats, and this app is no different.

When I first started chatting with strangers they all said “m” for their first message. Later on when someone asked me “m/f?” I realized they were asking if I was a male or female. This is like a little filtering process. If two dudes get put together in a chat (it happens more than 8/10 times) then they simply skip each other.
This kind of implies that these users aren’t really here to chat with strangers, but rather to sext or to trade contact information. There are also a lot of advertisements on there. Here’s what I’m talking about:

Stranger: Hi…
You: Hi
Stranger: hey! Cute 24/f/f!!!!! Recently single! If u are a cute male and wanna have some fun.. sk.yp3 me at HotJen_potentially and we’ll swap sum pix!
**Your conversational partner has disconnected.
Here’s another one:
You: M
Stranger: hey
Stranger: f
You: What’s your age?
Stranger: 17
Stranger: you
You: same
**Your conversational partner has disconnected.

So the one time I found a “f” (female) on there, she disconnected after I said I was the same age as her. She probably thought I was a sexual predator after saying I was the same age as her (to try and get her to trust me).

Or… This “female” was probably a sextortionist male somewhere across the world. If I said I was 20, she (or he) would have made contact with me through Facebook or via text messages. If I was also 20 and asked for incriminating material from her, then she would extort me for a large amount of money, on threats that she would tell my family or friends that I’m a sexual predator.

So whether you’re a sexual predator and using Omegle, or you’re a normal person using Omegle, you’re probably interacting with another sexual predator or sextortionist on there.

The Good:

The benefits of buying this app for $.99 are very low and probably nonexistent. Not to mention that the last three reviews on iTunes are one star reviews.

The Bad:

No video chat means that you have no idea if you’re talking to a female or a male. The entire community is also made up of at least 80% males. These males are probably 12 year olds looking for girls in the wrong places, or 40 year olds, also looking for girls in the wrong places.
The chances of talking to a sexual predator or sextortionist are way higher than talking to someone about something interesting, or finding someone your age worth exposing yourself for (if you’re into that sort of thing).

Conclusion:

Stay away from this app. Just use Omegele.com which has video and is 100% free. But if you’re expecting to get anywhere productive with meeting interesting people, or meeting hot people, then you’re going to be disappointed. Omegele.com is a fun site to visit with friends and to mess around with strangers, it’s not really a good idea to go on there for anything else.

The app Omegle app on the other hand is completely useless and overpriced.
