Hi, my name is Britton. Are you available?
we have lots of friends who can make skype video calls but hardly anybody who uses facetime
What devices are they using to make skype calls?
i'm getting my wife a new ipod touch with faacetime
PC;s and android phones
are you there?
yes, sorry...had to use the bathroom
Unfortunately, Skype on iOS doesn't currently support video calls
You'll have to stick with Face Time until Skype releases a version for iOS that supports video calls
Have you heard of Fring?
so ... the answer is no? fring???
No to skype -- it currently doesn't allow video calls on iOS (iOS is the operating system that runs on iPods and iPhones)Fring may be a good alternative for you since it's available for many different types of phones (iOS, Android, Symbian, etc..)
Fring is an application that allows you to send chats, make video calls, send instant messages, etc... You'll find it in both the Apple store and the Android Marketplace
will fring on an Ipod touch do video calls?
It sure will
Here is a link to it in the iTunes store...
just not skype?
It's probably the best alternative for you until Skype adds video chat support for iOS
No, it's not Skype
how does fring work
It's pretty simple -- you just need to download the App from iTunes.
Once downloaded, you'll create an account and be able to video chat with your friends and family who also have fring on their mobile device
It works the same way on android phones. Simply download the app, create an account and you'll be able to start sending chats to other fring users. Here is their site for Android...
Have you ever used an Instant Messenger to chat with someone on the internet? Using a computer?
Have you used skype on a computer?
Okay -- it works the exact same way. You'll have a buddy list (list of contacts) that will show you who is currently online. You'll be able to directly contact people on your buddy list and make calls to them
is one IM program the best?
Or send chat messages -- exactly like you do with Skype
I personally like Fring. It allows you to chat using Google Talk, Fring, Yahoo etc... As well as the fact that it supports video calls to other fring users. There really isnt a chat program out there that has as many features as Fring
OK I guess that's all I need to know for now -- thanks
