Tango: A Better Facetime

I've been using Tango as my sole iPhone video chat application for a while now. The app allows you to have free, high quality video calls over both Wi-Fi and 3G. Most importantly though, you are not limited to calling family and friends who own iPhones as it is works on other smart phones (read: Android) as well.

Set-up is simple. The app pulls in your contacts automatically and searches it's database for which of them is on Tango. You can, of course, invite your friends to join if they are not already using the service.

The only drawback...this software is designed for phone to phone communication. A desktop app that also ties into the service would be a nice addition.

Free app, free service (beyond cell phone costs and service plan) so a nice addition at the right price. Great for free.
