Proving that they are a forward-thinking, innovation-focused, customer-centric sextoy manufacturer, Lovense has 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 is easier to go over what it doesn’t do rather than try to list everything it is fully capable of.
But since that would not make for interesting or informative reading, we will try our darndest 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
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 are happy to say that is not the case, as it is 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 have whatever sex toys the user has to respond to.
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 the Vibemate organized and improving the viewing experience.
More often than not, tipping a live performer can be confusing or not downright frustrating.
But not so with Vibemate, as it is 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 their Lovense toy oscillate, vibrate, or whatever else they are built to do to a nearly limitless range of preset patterns.
Of which there are popular, recent, picked by Lovense, or ones the user has already liked to choose from.
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 is actually not necessary to use a Lovense toy with the Vibemate app. Sure, it is 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 is necessary is downloading it from the Apple or Android app store and firing it up.
Signing with Lovense isn’t even mandatory, though it is recommended; otherwise, you will not be able to take advantage of its groundbreaking features.
Like any other browser, you can then use 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 open simultaneously, you 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 employs 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 is 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 nothing is ever perfect, and as we said, Lovense is about improving whatever they make, from their sex toys to apps, 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.
Though obviously no fault of Lovense or their app, visiting Pornhub with it was a pain in the posterior due to the site’s far too many and far too often large numbers of pop-up ads, redirects, and spyware attacks.
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.
- 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 of charge for Android or iPhone users
- Currently only supports five sites, but more will probably be added
- Could probably do with some interface tweaking
- Lacks a password lock
- Desperately needs antiviral protection
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 is 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 cannot 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 perhaps they might instead grace us with next-gen interactive apps, like artificially intelligent ones which might 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.
