    • It had the same issues with Surfly. I tried the new version of Samesurf and it worked really well. It didn’t require a download.

    • Surfly seems to be a good choice. I haven’t tried it completely but it seems better than both the apps shared in the article. One thing that I wanted to ask if we can use Surfly on the fly without having to create an account?

      • The people you invite to your session will not need to have an account. You could for example send out a tweet containing your surfly link and everybody can join in on the fun.

        The person who controls the session currently still needs to create an account – but we’ll simplify this by adding social sign in.
