What is CometChat?
It is a PHP-MySQL (or MSSQL) powered application that enables users of a website to easily communicate with each other and interact with the website.
CometChat sits in the footer of a website and supports both text (including group chat) + video/voice chat. It also allows file transfers, screensharing and, with the most recent version, the ability to chat with Gtalk and Facebook friends.
This is an exciting feature as it helps "the activity of users to grow" by keeping them on the website more.
The application also offers more than chat:
- it has 100+ built-in games -including multiplayer ones-
- users can write or draw together on whiteboards or writeboards
- it is possible to publish announcements
- integrates Facebook fan page and displays Twitter activities
- works as a social share widget
There are integrations with many other popular softwares (like JomSocial, vBulletin, SocialEngine, Invision Power Board, phpFox, Boonex Dolphin, BuddyPress, phpBB, WordPress, SkaDate, Elgg and more) exist.
With the new version, there is now a mobile web interface which works in all major devices/platforms.
CometChat can be completely customized to better with the style of any website and it can be controlled very easily with the help of a powerful admin panel with settings for everything.
CometChat is offering a 10% discount to all Professional Edition or higher purchases until 1st of November with the coupon code: "WRD10OFF" (without quotes).
