How AltME is Used
Here's how one organization uses AltME -- to collaborate, coordinate,
and communicate on a large software project.
This AltME world includes more than 50 collaborators from timezones
around the world, but AltME's unique persistent private chat (private instant
messaging) makes it easy. Every user can read their messages at whatever

Other Instant Applications
AltME does a lot more than just private chat. Here you can see several
other applications being used, including the checklist, calendar, and a
special custom bug-tracker application.
There is no limit to the number of instant applications. Contact us if you want us to build you a
special custom application.
This is a good example of a private AltME world. All chat is private.
Messages and other communications are encrypted when sent over the
Internet. In addition, the world is run entirely from their own computer
system. It does not use AOL, Yahoo, MSN or other public servers.
