    Is there a video chat application that works reliably with the bionic and the front facing camera???

    I know that skype is supposedly able to do it, but I have read alot of reviews to the contrary.

    Although I haven't used it, I've heard that Google Talk works fine.

    Google Talk will work, but the other party must also have video chat capabilities...

    I have Tango and it seems to work pretty well, although I don't use it very often.

    Where can I get google talk? I checked the market on my PC and my bionic with no success in finding it.

    Talk already comes installed on your phone. Its just called talk, check your ap drawer. I've been using tango and it works beautifully

    I don't remembet if I downloaded it from the app market or if it was preloaded. Look in your app tray for an app that's labeled as "Talk"!

    Talk is pre installed on your phone, and most Android phones. Any one with a gmail account and Web cam can can talk to you with it. We use it all the time. Between our phones, tablets, and computer, it works great I like it allot better than Skype.

    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
