When users first load Powwownow they are prompted, to select their country and fill in relevant information about themselves. The main menu screen shows five main functions on the bottom of the screen: Conference, Manage, History, Settings, and Help. With the “Conference” function the user can schedule and conduct conference calls straight from their device. With the “Manage” function, they can also preset options so calls and alerts can be placed by a single touch of a button. They can also manage their personal account details such as storing their PIN and dial-in number for future reference.
With the “History” and “Settings” functions ssers can utilize their contacts list and schedule conference calls with invitations via email. Their conference call contacts lists can be imported from their existing contacts lists on their device or can be created by the users from scratch.

Conference calls can be placed all around the world and the only fees that users would accumulate from using this app would be the cost the actual call itself and how it would reflect on the users’ regular phone plan.
Appearance and Layout:
The overall appearance of Powwownow is decent and simple. The main color scheme is a pleasant green. Navigation is a breeze, and menu functions and features are easy to figure out. The user can instantly find their way and figure out the main purpose of this app without any difficulties.

Users can even go to this app for personal use, such as communicating with family members and loved ones who are not located within the local vicinity.
