    All,

    Still getting used to all the features of the S4. Does anyone know of an app I can use that is similar to Facetime on the iPhone? I know Skype will do exactly what I need, however, I was hoping there was something preloaded on the S4.

    +1 for that. Picture is great and you can have up to 4 people on video chat.

    The Hangouts app is also available for iPhone users as well - if you have friends who have that device ;)...

    There's nothing preloaded that integrates like Facetime. Hangouts works really well, but if most of the people around you have iPhones and don't have G+, Oovoo, Tango, etc., you inevitably have to have the "hey you just need to install this!" conversation with them. :) If they have G+ already, Hangouts is probably the best option.

    On a related note: More people need to start using G+ already.

    I'll have to admit that Facetime is smooth as silk with good Wi-Fi connections. My daughter was in Germany for a while and her and my wife both have iPhones. My daughter and I tried other apps but they weren't nearly as good.

    I wouldn't trade my S4 for two i5s though!
