Last week, we reported that video calls through Skype were available through the Fring app for iPhone. Today, we've received unfortunate news that the internet communication app has been asked to drop its Skype interconnectivity. This news comes as a bit of a shock, especially because Skype has been available through Fring for four years.
The groovy folks at fringland Ltd. have done it again: They were the first to include incoming video chat -- even through Skype -- with their popular, free fring app, and now they’ve leveraged the front-facing camera on the iPhone 4 to do the same with two-way video calls, even over 3G. Take that, FaceTime!
One of the flagship features of the iPhone 4 is its video conferencing capabilities, a la FaceTime. Two doctors, however, are putting Apple's claim that FaceTime is the next generation of telecommunication to the test. In a Jetsons style conference, they are able to consult at-risk patients who need limb amputation without being in the same room.
It’s been quite a year for Apple so far, but now that the dust has settled on the iPad and is starting to do the same on the iPhone 4, the rumors turn to September and what may come with the next generation of the iPod touch.
If you haven't had a chance to FaceTime with a friend, now you can…FaceTime with a complete stranger. Dial 1-888-FaceTime to speak to an Apple representative, LIVE. They're available for you from 8am to 8pm central time. This is a great way to do a test to make sure that your phone is working properly.
So, what are you waiting for? Operators are standing by. Call now, and let us know in the comment who you run into on the other line.
You’d think after the biggest product launch in Apple’s history, CEO Steve Jobs would take a day or two off, but it appears he’s taken to his keyboard yet again to respond to some e-mail inquiries involving the lack of Wi-Fi sync in iTunes and the missing hold button on the iPhone 4.
Apple announced today that the much awaited feature in the iPhone 4, FaceTime, won't use any carrier minutes like many people initially thought. According to Apple, the call will be placed over the cellular network, but as soon as you hit the FaceTime button, the call will end (ending the use of your minutes) and the video will be routed over a Wi-Fi network connection.
