Changes in the recently released beta of iOS 4.1 could shine light on Apple's plan for FaceTime on other iOS devices like the iPod touch or the iPad, with it potentially making a debut on the Mac platform. Boy Genius Reports that you are now able to link FaceTime with an email address in the new beta firmware, potentially allowing non-phone devices to connect to iPhone 4 devices for FaceTime chats.
There’s no doubt that Apple’s new iPhone 4-only FaceTime feature is great, and the company is letting everyone know about it with an avalanche of new television commercials. But whether you’re stuck on an older iPhone or you don’t have any iPhone 4-toting friends to video chat with, there are thankfully some free App Store alternatives to FaceTime--if you know where to look.
Hey, there. There's no need to worry. That firewall won't keep you from FaceTiming with the love of your life. Apple has posted information on its support website with detailed instructions on how to get past this little roadblock. After all, nothing should keep lovers apart--isn't it already a battlefield?
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.
