Bandoo is a collection of animations that serves as an add-on for the installed messengers on your computers, allowing you to send customized messages to your contacts.
The application works with Yahoo Messenger and Windows Live Messenger and it integrates a new toolbar in every conversation window for quick access to all animations.
Bandoo is indeed an eye candy collection of animations and all emoticons are organized in categories, such as “Character”, “Smiles”, “Express” and “Other”. Plus, each category has multiple subcategories, including holidays, laugh, love or kiss.
Just as expected, the configuration level is very low and Bandoo only comes with a limited number of options, such as dedicated tools to enable new content notifications, mask explicit content or enable shortcuts window.
As you can see, Bandoo is very easy to use, but it\'s still highly recommended to pay attention to the installation process as it also attempts to drop some additional software on every computer. Plus, it tries to change the homepage in your browser and add a new search engine.
Bandoo runs smooth on all Windows versions, but we\'ve experienced some slowdowns during our test, especially when using it on Yahoo Messenger. New conversation windows seem to load a bit slower and the whole instant messaging application freezes for about a second every once in a while.
Overall, Bandoo deserves a chance if you\'re one of the users addicted to instant messaging because the application has the necessary features to make the whole experience a lot more captivating.
