Speechify is absolutely brilliant. Growing up with dyslexia this would have made a big difference. I’m so glad to have it today.

Apache OpenMeetings reviews

OpenMeetings is software used for presenting, online training, web conferencing, collaborative whiteboard drawing and document editing, and user desktop sharing.

- Shriya C. Account Manager

White board feature is one among the most popular and my favourite feature of the openmeetings.

- Lokesh Kumar T. Senior Software Development Engineer

User experience is poor. This makes a huge difference compared to the other similar and popular software.

Melon reviews

My experience has been phenomenal. I love it and would recommend it to everyone who does live-streaming.

- Loy J. Owner

I'm loving that Melon allows my team to go live quickly and easily on multiple platforms simultaneously without straining our computers, laptops, or phones/tablets, we can all share screens and it is extremely simple for non-tech savvy guests to get onto our streams. It's also great not hearing my system fans all spool up instantly like some local solutions do because of how demanding they are.

- Kacey G. Video creator

I was using melon and went with their pro plan. It was working well until I faced a bug where it was always showing my camera is in use. It contacted the support and they said they would solve this coming live. When I shared my timing, they said we are busy now and unable to help you. It was totally an unexpected reply.

Pros & cons

Apache OpenMeetings

The open-source nature of the tool2
Awesome community3
Decent calling feature.4
Integration and plugin support

UI is not modern or intuitive.2
Recording is hit and miss.3
Admin controls could be better.


Just a solid stream to multiple social media platforms
Melon is a solid compromise of simple and solid
Overall it is very good and solved several problems I was having
A few more tweaks and it will be a perfect solution for us
Melon allows me to have a professional look, which helps improve the guest experience, as well as the image of my show
This is a very useful tool for those who want to take their live video streaming to the next level
It's is super easy to setup up and a cloud-based SaaS."

I have trouble with volume from time to time, and it does have trouble with connection from time to time
Having to sing in every time makes it hard and frustrating
No music through software for background ambience
Melon is still quite new, and is missing several basic features that are required by powerusers."
