    I wonder if we can "Twilight" it? The next app to skin...

    Edit: doesn't look like it base on the previous post!

    I was wrong it does still work. You have to go ahead and make a call and you will see it. Has a nice pic too

    How easy is it to use compared to Fring? I could never get video calling on fring to work because someone had to have some kind of messenger account and it would never work. People want to just get on and go not have to jump over hoops to get it to work.

    Probably use the video calling more on Skype than FaceTime considering a lot more ppl have/use Skype than FT.

    Well just tried to get it to work and it doesn't work. Tried to call my buddy next to me as we both got the app. And it says i need skype credit to make the call. WTF? Then on his phone when he tried to call me it rings and says your call to xxx xxx xxxx cannot be completed as dialed. What are we doing wrong?

    Thumbs up Screw platform-locked solutions
    FaceTime might be nice, but screw that Apple-newest-models-only lock-in tactic.
    Fring is cool and multi-platform, but it's still short of non-mobile clients for PC, Mac and Linux.
    Tango is cool, but still in its infancy.

    Skype seems to be the way to go for now, it's already widely adopted and covers a whole lot of platforms.

    Video call worked Ok between an iPhone 3GS (4.0.1/jb) and an iPhone 4 (4.1/jb), both on WiFi.

    The 3GS did send video from its back-facing camera, but it was way slower to reflect movement than the video sent by the 4, which was also understandibly crisper and sharper.

    is it just me or does the video quality really suck? I'm using an iPhone 4 (ios 4.1).. and the front face camera quality is horrrrrrible!

    I will stick with Tango for now.

    For everyone saying it doesnt work for jailbroken phones .. It does.. It pops up then when u press ok it goes away.. If not, reinstall..

    And the quality is great for 3G.. On wi-fi it is just awesome .. Leave FT out of the equation.. Skype is the way to go...!!

    we need hackers to make this work with 3GS. I've seen a FaceTime hack before for 3GS.

    So how do you make it work? Do you need to have a special account? Or pay for anything?

    What is the use if you need to use the only cam on 3GS? You can't see the caller or he/she cant's see you! Better try to upgrade to 4.
