Live facetime sex chat
Calls made to the i Phone 4 from another i Phone 4 were clear at a glance, but a deeper look revealed that they contained some pixel noise.
The edges of our face looked only slightly less blurry than on video calls made with Skype and Tango, but it was much better than Oovoo, which struggled over Wi-Fi.
So should Apple fans stick to Face Time exclusively, or should they opt for other apps that open up communication to more users?
Because the i Pad 2 and i Pod touch don't have phone numbers, Face Time works differently on them than on the i Phone 4.
For instance, the small thumbnail of the video feed can be dragged or flicked from one corner to another with your finger, and when your caller switches from the back camera to the front one or vice versa, the video feed actually revolves around to indicate to the other caller what's happening.
When this action happens in each of the other video chat applications, the video feed simply freezes for a split second before it reappears jarringly with different video.
Then, if needed, users can enter another separate e-mail address that other callers can use to find them.
On the i Phone 4, Face Time works much like making a phone call.
Google Chat, Fring, oo Voo, Skype, and Tango each work over 3G and 4G data networks as well as Wi-Fi.On those devices, Face Time is a standalone, pre-installed application.For the i Phone 4, Face Time works as a feature within the Phone and Contacts apps.On the i Phone, you'll need to activate Face Time in the phone settings before making any video calls.You'll also want to remember to turn on Wi-Fi since Face Time doesn't work on AT&T or Verizon's 3G networks.
Apple's solution to that admittedly small glitch adds a bit of cool to Face Time.
