    IPhone has FaceTime. Is Google Video the best app to make video calls on GNex? It just seems too much. Face time is quick and easy. Not that I am an Apple fan. Not at all but Android almost seems to be going the way of M$ with the difficulty of software. I could be wrong.

    I think google talk is the best.

    But don't think its as good as face time yet.

    Just my opinion.

    Agreed. I thought maybe it was just me. I don't want to switch to iPhone just for Face time. Any good apps or advice that takes advantage of GNEX and ICS?

    I read somewhere that Tango has caused some issues with ICS.

    I use Fring for video chat and it seems to work as good as face time. I am not a fan of apple so if u like face time and want an equivalent on your android device check out this app on the market. I actually use it to talk to some of my friends on their ipod touch, of course they have to have it on their ipod too.

    I have been using it with my gnex for couple weeks now and have had no problems, no fc's at all. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to video chat on their gnex.

    +1 for Tango. like stated above, works well doing android to iphone calls and on to computer with webcam as well. Seen no issues with tango and ICS yet. Super easy to setup. Also, it would have limited use but you can also use it on phones without a front camera like a droid x using the back camera in case someone really wanted to show you something in real time.

    Does Tango work with wifi-only iPads and Android tablets?

    I tried Tango with just a voice call to another Android phone and it was horrible. Lots of digital artifacting and cutting in and out. I was on wifi, not sure about the person I was talking to though. I didn't try the video part of it yet.

    I have had bad experienced with tango...and OK ones with fring. I face chat only with an iphone user so we're still experimenting for the best program. For now, it's fring. Iphone users cannot use Google video chat, right?

    I've used skype, worked like a charm with no lag on 4g. Chewed battery though, but that was kind of expected.

    What version of Skype are you using, mine doesn't allow for video at all?

    I use both Skype and G Chat.

    I find Tango limiting b/c you need the other person to also use Tango and have it signed in. It's not as ubiquitous.
