So excited about the possibility ... ?
but that's not optimized for ipad (*2 graphics/etc)
They should get an iPad version out quickly I'd think. Already on the iPhone so just a matter of updating for the iPad now that it has cameras.
I think it is more likely, but the iPhone skype app sucks for video. Very sluggish on my iPhone 4. I use Facetime if at all possible. Pretty much all of my family members either have facetime on iPhone 4s or Macs, which, while it took time, I've been able to get loaded in so I can call 'em. Much better than Skype, imho, I imagine it would be for iPad, too.
Mac-to-Mac, I actually use Skype more than Facetime, but they're pretty comparable.
even though its not optimized for ipad yet i think it still works great....we use it everyday to call brazil.. video is solid most of the time.
The iphone app works good enough on the ipad.
Google Talk would be cool as well.
Opposite here - I find Skype superior to FaceTime on my Viphone and hope they come out with a Ipad Skype.
Only problem is that I think they're slow. I think it took a REALLY long time to get the app on the iPhone up and working. Maybe it was only encouraged to when Fring had one working but still, even with that, they took their sweet time.
In any case, I hope it comes reasonably quickly as I'm not an Apple guy nor are most of my friends and family, so Facetime isn't very useful for me compared to Skype since I'm mostly calling people who are on PCs.
But the iPhone app is sufficient for the time being I guess.
Weird. I've tried Skype on iPhones, iPod Touches and the iMacs, with all sorts of different combinations. Almost invariably on the same connection Facehad noticably better image quality than Skype. My wife hates me for picking up a phone with no FaceTime for that reason.
As for the iPad version, since there's already the iPod Touch version I'd guess it's pretty much a given. Now give us the Android version with video too.
yeah for me facetime definitely had better vid quality when i call my buddy with iphone 4 but facetime is limited being that its mac only
