    anyone else notice FaceTime is a separate app like on the iPod Touch, and not built into the Phone app anymore?

    Why can't I see it in recent screenshots of iOS 7?? There's never an icon which actually named FaceTime... just saying :-/

    It's still a part of the phone app but they also gave it it's own dedicated app if that makes sense

    What features are in the facetime standalone app that are different from the one integrated in the phone app?

    Does the facetime standalone app come preinstalled, or would I have to download it myself, and would it be removable, like other apps?

    It's preinstalled. I did not try to remove it, I just put it into a folder.

    I can see many people doing this, unless they're using an iPod or iPad!

    I think it's the exact same thing, only with having an additional icon now.

    If you think about it, it actually kind of makes sense. Unlike most of us here on MacRumours where we know about the features of the iPhone/iOS, you have to remember majority, or at least a good percentage of the market that buy iPhones/iDevices/iWhateveryouhave aren't that technological. There may be people that don't know FaceTime even exist, so Apple is making it more known, with the addition of its own icon.

    Apple made it its own app because according to some consumers they couldn't find FaceTime, and on iPod touch and iPad it is right there, (even though these devices lack the Phone.app)

    Also because it's easier to choose between FaceTime and FaceTime audio.
