ArrowChat is a jQuery-powered, PHP/MySQL (or MSSQL) application for quickly adding chat support to any website so that visitors/members can easily communicate with each other.
They are giving away 3 KickStarter licenses and offering a special 10% discount to WRD readers. Details about them can be found at the bottom of this post.
The application features a Facebook-like chat system which sits in the footer of websites, presents the online users and allows them to chat instantly.
Users can choose to chat in private or inside full-featured chatrooms (which can be password-protected with moderators, kicking, etc.). And, they are instantly notified about new messages or friend requests.
ArrowChat also has video chat which is Flash-based and works smoothly. This is specially great for social networking websites.
It has a set of integrated applications from games to social sharing or instant web page translation to offer more features to users.
The application is also great for sending announcements as they are sent in real-time and you feel sure that each user logging in sees them.
Managing the application is easy for both the end users and the system admin as users get an options panel to customize everything and admins have an admin panel to control each and every feature.
It is possible to customize the look and feel of the application with theming support and also customize/improve the functionality as ArrowChat is fully open sourced.
And, best of all, ArrowChat has integrations for many popular apps including forum softwares, social networking softwares and others like WordPress, Joomla or Drupal. Once installed, the system works with existing users, avatars and profiles.
P.S. The system works with all major browsers including mobile.
ArrowChat provides 10% discount to all WRD readers who use the coupon code "WRD" (the coupon will expire on 5/31/2012 and Credit/Debit Card must be selected at checkout to use the code -PayPal can still be used with this method-).
