VibeMate Review: The Free Interactive Content Hub by Lovense

By M.Christian

Proving that they are a forward-thinking, innovation-focused, customer-centric sextoy manufacturer, Lovense recently released their VibeMate smartphone app: an integrated, one-stop-shop for anyone into interactive adult entertainment.

VibeMate is one of those apps where it’s easier to go over what it doesn’t do rather than try to list everything it’s fully capable of.

But since that would not make for interesting or informative reading, we’ll try our darnedest to show why VibeMate is practically perfect in every way for viewing and engaging with live streaming performers – and a whole lot more.

 

About the Lovense VibeMate App

innovative mobile browser built-in lovense

Freely available for both Apple and Android smartphones, VibeMate is essentially a Bluetooth-enabled sextoy-supporting web browser.

Though other browsers are perfectly suited for adult entertainment site browsing, VibeMate ups the ante by letting users easily link their preferred Lovense product to select sites, nicely bypassing the need to set up their Max 2, Nora, or whatever the user wants to use separately.

Lovense doesn’t stop there. Another big part of VibeMate is its ability to track any number of specific performers, alerting its user when they are putting on a new, live show.

You’d think VibeMate would have to sacrifice all those user web-browser amenities, like bookmarking sites, having multiple tabs open, and so forth.

But we’re happy to say that’s not the case, as it’s very easy to forget VibeMate is all about adult entertainment and not a slightly different-looking version of Firefox or Chrome.

Making it even simpler, there’s the option to select any of its five supported websites and search for content within them by using an Apple or Android camera to snap a pic of a performer’s QR Code, when available.

The sites it is particularly good with are limited to Chaturbate, Bongacams, Cam4, Stripchat, and Pornhub.

But as Lovense is known for further developing their products – sooner rather than later – these will likely be joined by other sites.

SexLikeReal springs to mind, as it recently partnered with Lovense to support its full line of smart sex toys. The site is also home to many live performers and pre-recorded videos.

So maybe it is merely a question of time before SexLikeReal is added to VibeMate’s roster of approved sites.

Besides, nothing prevents VibeMate from viewing and subscribing to sites beyond those five. It is just that some of the app’s features won’t be available.

What Makes the Lovense VibeMate App So Great

But VibeMate has other tricks up its sleeve.

For starters, if a performer includes Lovense products in their shows, it is a snap to set up the app to respond to whatever sex toys the user has.

You can even use VibeMate to filter camgirls, camguys, or campeople from those who do not use Lovense toys.

This huge – and very cool – feature eliminates having to endlessly scroll through sites like Cam4, Chaturbate, and such, looking for ones that do.

It is also possible to categorize bookmarks as Streamers, Videos, or Other, which can do wonders for keeping VibeMate organized and improving the viewing experience.

More often than not, tipping a live performer can be confusing or just downright frustrating.

But not so with VibeMate, as it’s a snap to send a specific number of tokens or dollars – which is changeable at any time – as well as set up a regularly recurring amount if auto-tipping is preferable.

VibeMate isn’t limited to acting as a web browser.

Whenever a user wants, they can have. Lovense toys oscillate, vibrate, or whatever else they’re built to do to a nearly limitless range of preset patterns.

These patterns could be either popular, recent, picked by Lovense, or ones the user has already liked.

So, even if a performer or pre-recorded video isn’t Lovense-compatible, it remains possible to enjoy any of their toys while watching them.

Speaking of, it’s actually not necessary to use a Lovense toy with the VibeMate app. Sure, it’s loads of fun when a Max 2, Nora, or any of their products are involved.

But without them, it remains an effective and pleasurable way of tracking when a performer puts on a show, tipping them whenever and however a user wants, and a host of likewise great benefits to installing it.

How to Set Up and Use the Lovense VibeMate App

VibeMate is hardly challenging to download and use. All that’s necessary is to download it from the Apple or Android app store and fire it up.

Signing up with Lovense isn’t even mandatory, though it is recommended; otherwise, you’ll not be able to take advantage of its groundbreaking features.

Like any other browser, you can then use the VibeMate app to visit an adult site. Making the process even more of a snap, there are icons for the five sites it supports.

With the option to have several of these sites open simultaneously, you’ll never need to close one to open another.

Navigating a site is merely a matter of using its search bar or looking over its various categories.

Once you find a performer, tapping the heart icon at the bottom of the app makes it a favorite.

Meanwhile, another tap will open VibeMate’s option screen, which is where more fun begins. Because this is where you can tip a performer.

Further, selecting “syncable performers” will automatically list everyone who uses Lovense toys in their show, opening the door to possibly engaging in some mutual teledildonic play between you and them.

On the same screen is a similar filtering button. However, this time it’s for “interactive media,” as in pre-recorded videos with sextoy interactivity coded into them.

This is also where you connect your preferred Lovense toy – or toys – to the app.

Clearly, Lovense put the same amount of care into this app as they did with their Remote one, as linking any of their products to VibeMate is just as effortless.

Another point in their favor is, unlike other sextoy manufacturers, whatever is connected to VibeMate stays connected.

For example, we hadn’t used the app for at least a month and were pleasantly surprised when firing it up again. Its link to our Max 2 and Nora was still in place.

As we said, Lovense is all about improving on their already fantastic products, from sex toys to apps, and we hope they will take our comments to heart.

Fortunately, our quibbles are few and far between. Beginning with wishing VibeMate had a password lock to prevent unauthorized people from looking at it.

Mainly, it would be wonderful to include at least basic malware protection.

Through no fault of Lovense or their app, visiting Pornhub with it was a pain in the butt due to the site’s far-too- many and far-too-often large numbers of pop-up ads, redirects, and spyware attacks.

As nothing is ever perfect, and though the app is a breeze to use, there are places where a moderate redesign would make a good thing even greater.

  • Such as a much more direct way to filter for sextoy-integrated performers or videos.
  • Same for accessing favorites or bookmarks, as it feels like there are too many clicks and screens to deal with right now.

Pros:

  • Amazingly well-designed app.
  • It could easily replace a phone or tablet’s browsers for adult entertainment watching.
  • Nifty tip and sextoy integration.
  • An impressive array of innovative features.
  • Free for Android or iPhone users.

Cons:

  • Currently only supports five sites, but more will most likely be added soon.
  • Could probably do with some interface tweaking.
  • Lacks a password lock.
  • Desperately needs antiviral protection.

VibeMate Review: The Verdict

Cutting to the chase, what’s our opinion on whether or not you should download and use Lovense’s VibeMate app?

The short answer is yes, indeed. Particularly because this is one slick piece of software engineering.

From its innumerable fantastic features, like the ability to screen out pre-recorded videos or livestreamed shows for ones with smart sextoy integration and how simple it makes tipping, it’s a must-download, must-use app for anyone who knows and loves the pleasures of combing Lovense’s products with interactive adult entertainment.

VibeMate is so cool and so impressively innovative we can’t wait to see what Lovense might give us next.

Obviously, we would like to see VibeMate 2.0, with at least a minimal degree of anti-virus and malware protection, a password lock, and perhaps an improved user interface.

But they might instead grace us with next-gen interactive apps, like artificially intelligent ones which could be capable of reading an adult video and automatically creating a number of sextoy vibration patterns to suit it.

We could even see apps smart enough to seek out and find exactly what we want when it comes to explicit entertainment.

Such as their activities, performers, length, and which Lovense products would work best for interacting with them.

Really, the sky is the limit when it comes to Lovense and smartphone apps.

Whatever they come up with, Lovense will undoubtedly give it their all, providing us with yet another amazingly put-together and pleasure-to-use smartphone app.

Between now and then, we heartily recommend VibeMate for all your adult live or pre-recorded entertainment needs.
