Cam Zap offers you an alternative to chat with strangers that, keeping the same concept that characterizes Chatroulette, pretends to be unique among the crowd of random chat sites that have been populated the World Wide Web lately. However, when you land for the very first time at Cam Zap, you will find a familiar environment set.

Certainly, Facebook users will feel comfortable with the top menu that having nothing to do with the social networking site, are intuitive an easy to browse.

Moving onto the main screen of the site, below the menu bar, you will see a chat window on the left, and a typical text chat area on the right that welcomes you, and provides general information about the site, although there is no clear information about a billing service that suggest the payment to access certain features.
The main windows also warns you about the risk of having displayed an adult cam, but making you sole responsible for your actions once that you press the start button to begin with you cam to cam chat. By pressing "Start", your webcam will turn automatically and you will see the first stranger that randomly comes to you.
