With the explosion of camera enabled Apple IOS devices, along with the Macintosh's increasing market penetration, Apple's Face Time conference app has become a formidable contender with an installed base in the hundreds of millions of i Phone, i Pad and Mac OSX users.
It's lack of compatibility with Windows or Andriod OS is unfortunate - but Face Time is a global success regardless.
There's also integrated Face Book chat with your FB friend list.
Numbers starting 030 are reserved for government departments and public services, healthcare services, charities and other non-profit making organisations.i Chat was preinstalled on every Mac giving it a large installed userbase.It offered great video quality and features, but LACKED COMMUNITY.[FYI: If you get errors trying to do video chat, especially with with PC users, it's often because of Router, Firewall or Internet Security Blocking software far more common on the PC end.Try Skype instead.] Only takes minutes to download the free version of Cam Frog, set up an account, and start stumbling through rooms full of people around the globe!Many i Chat AV users experienced problems and flakiness trying to video conference with Windows AOL Instant Messenger users, so Skype is worth trying as a more reliable alternative.Skype's ability to access and integrate your Apple Address Book contacts and search their directory for pals helps build a buddy list quickly at Skype.You're on your own to find and build your own Pal-Buddy List from friends @and @and @accounts.But with AOL's AIM cross-platform compatibility, there's still a HUGE user-base of AOL Instant Messenger folks to chat with. Full support of text, voice, video and and now - file and screen-sharing with the latest OSX Leopard i Chat HD version.It works, it's fun, has a HUGE community of millions of users - and can be overwhelming sometimes.Cam Frog for OSX makes it a little too easy to drown in overlapping windows but it's very approachable for first-time video chatters to get connected quickly.
