    I prefer affordable conference call services such as Skype especially for businesses. There is a paid version that allows you to do video conference with multiple individuals which is really good. Others like Branded Bridge Line and UberConference also offer good quality services.

    We use Skype in therapeutics applications in Psychology, and we think it’s the best opción because it’s the more popular videoconference app.

    I suppose that the rest of the systems are surely better, but for our psychologist purposes the better is the more popular
