    Cool. Just downloaded it. Apparently apple has no problems with other developers using video calling programs :)

    just tested it with a friend, its ok certainly not facetime quality but at least you can do it over 3g. I'm very surprised apple approved this.

    if i'm logged into my skype account and i click on one of my contacts, there are 3 options/icons: one looks like chat, one is a phone, and one is a video camera icon. i chose the video cam icon.

    I just had a video chat with a friend on his laptop. It took around 45 seconds for the video to come through and then after that it worked just fine. A tad choppy but it was still cool to do.

    Ya, the app's not very user friendly. And it's ugly as all *******.

    I already deleted it after figuring it out but my friend didn't wanna register with his phone number on his end, so I didn't test it. And from peoples' reaction to the app on these forums, it sounds like I'm not missing much.

    Here's hoping Skype gets theirs up and running soon :D

    i'm i an idiot? I can't get it to register a new account on fring. It doesn't work for me. any ideas? I get a message saying, this user ID already exists. I'm sure the 20 I have tried are not taken. A couple times i have typed in random numbers and letters.
