Globe 7 Review

Globe 7 is a comprehensive software that bundles a diverse range of opt-in widgets to bring you a complete entertainment, communication, information, and news solution within one convenient interface. The program lets you quickly access live TV and radio channels, the latest news stories, astrology reports, movie news/reviews/trailers, games, recipes, sports news, instant messaging, and the main attraction is the free Skype-like PC-to-PC telephone app. You also get access to a world clock and a robust calendar. With this software installed you can access all of your favorite online activities from one centralized widget wall.

Installation

The Globe 7 installation suite quickly and easily extracts the program's files and launches the interface within less than 10-20 seconds on most computers. The lengthiest part of the installation is waiting for the software to upgrade during the initial launch. Fortunately, you won't have to worry about declining any unwanted adware or third-party programs.

Upon launching the program for the first time you'll be prompted to create a Globe 7 account using basic information like your email address, first name, last name, gender, and country. This account will be used to backup your settings and personalize your experience with Globe 7.

Globe7 is compatible with all major versions of Windows.

Interface

The interface is one of the most appealing aspects, with each section of Globe 7 being represented by user-friendly widget icons. This compact yet useful utility looks a lot like a mobile phone menu, putting all of the main functionality within one click from the main screen. The arrangement and positioning of the widgets can be adjusted within a fully customizable icon station that lets you add and manage your favorite Globe 7 widgets.

Pros

  • Gives instant access to hundred of of “Free to Air” online television and radio channels. You can even create your own channel that will aggregate and mix content based on your preferences.

  • Offers business and financial news as well as real-time Forex rates and stock market information.

  • Lets you read thousands of newspapers from around the world directly from your desktop.

  • Puts all of your favorite computer activities into one smartphone-like interface.

  • Built-in internet phone lets you make free PC-to-PC calls as well as cheap calls to landlines and mobile phones.

  • Provides built-in file sharing app and instant messenger.

Cons

  • With so many widgets and seemingly unrelated features, Globe 7 could be seen as a “jack of all trades but a master of none.” In other words, it does many things well but it doesn't really do anything great or provide any unique features.

  • Account setup is required before you can begin using the software.

Alternatives

Globe 7 is mainly promoted as a VoIP solution, but this program really does so much more than that. With its all-in-one functionality Globe7 stands alone because of its extensive feature set. However, when it comes to the phone functionality there are similar VoIP apps available, including Skype and Gizmo.

Conclusion

If you're looking for an app that can give you a virtual smartphone on your desktop (with all the fun and useful apps and widgets included), then Globe7 is certainly worth checking out.
