Jonathan - it was lots of fun signing with you on Skype.
Yeah. That's how Glide works. And if you have a group of people practicing, you post to the group and anyone can respond. But yes, Glide is like text messaging with video. The downside to Glide though, is that you don't get instant feedback. If you make a mistake, or your message is confusing, someone isn't there immediately to tell you that they don't understand, or to give you that look that lets you know they're confused. Marco Polo is another app that works the same way.Skype is tricky because you need to have have the same free time as anybody else you are skyping with. For example, I am home doing nothing now and if we were contacts you would see I am home and we could skype. Cool if everybody is home at the same time.
I just learned about glide and it is cool because you can send a video and then your contact can watch it and reply whenever. It is basically text messaging with videos I think. I like glide, but being on the phone, the camera and lighting are somethings you have to be aware of.
