    Have you tried Skype for yourself?

    Nope. I don't like the user experience on PC's, and I can't imagine it being any better on a phone. But I'm moving up north and my girlfriend is staying here in Texas for a few months so we are trying to figure out the best way for video calling. She doesn't have an FFC right now, but I am thinking about picking her up a bionic off swappa.com

    Not to be an ass but why not try it for yourself before posting? It's free to download and if it doesn't work then try something else.

    Skype works great for me from my bionic and I use it weekly since I'm away from my family.

    Google chat hasn't worked too well for me. Video is upside down and choppy

    I remember having the upside down problem when I was first trying the different apps. But it was between my Xoom and PC. Just had to set it up again and problem was solved. I thought picture quality from tango sucked. Skype had just released there Android update to video chat when I was trying them out. at the time it was very buggy. Maybe its better now. Haven't used it since September, and google talk works great so didn't have any need to try again.since they are free try them all see what works best for you.

    Because i only use apps that work reliably 100% of the time, and there are more than a few bionic users out there that skype doesn't work for.

    Also, I mentioned the fact that I'm not huge fan of skype on PC's.

    And I contribute a hell of alot to these forums and don't spam post. This is a very valid question and seeing as how I have very little experience with video calling, I wanted to get users opinions before I delved into it.

    And if google is developing a video chat function to compete with "facetime", I'd much rather support that so they further development on it.

    I used Skype many times and it works well. I found it easy to use and most people has it.

    I can't seem to make Google Talk work for Video on my Bionic my friend has a front facing camera and he told me that he used Tango but I had seen the video on the bionic webpage showing how to use Gtalk and i just can't seem to make the video part work the chat works fine but nothing happens when I touch the video camera to start video chatting,If anyone has any ideas what I'm doing wrong please feel free to let me know?
    P.S. We both activated the Gtalk and neither of us could make it video chat.

    Skype works just fine i use it all the time. Early on builds required settings changes, but the latest version of skype (either one) is 100% compatible with video chat on the bionic
