Where are they already? i would have expected that by now there would be plenty of apps that use the front facing camera to video chat with computers. Frings started it but thats really it. and its not that good on fring.

There were a few apps already, one called ichatr that was exactly like chatroulette. They've since been removed by Apple presumably because of nudity. Which I find ridiculous, should they remove all twitter apps because people post rude words on twitter from them?

fring is your best bet, I use it to chat with my girl who has a EVO and it works great.

Yeah I haven't seen anything other than Fring... which didn't give me good results when I tried it. For now I'm sticking to FaceTime and the four friends of mine that also have iPhone 4s haha. Can't wait for Skype video.

I'd put money on a free FaceTime client from Apple for Windows and Mac by Christmas.

How do you get the video chat to work with Fring? Is it with a certain client like AIM or MSN? I tried Google, but it said it wasn't supported.

Seriously, I can't believe there isn't an app out there that will let you video chat with a PC/Mac. What's up with that? Where is the skype update with video chat?
