    No reason why not. Most peeps are convinced that now MS own skype the Apple app will be a non starter. That's contradictory to what MS said when they acquired Skype. They said they'd continue to closely support and invest in Skype on all non Microsoft platforms.

    Is oovoo cross app? Does it allow you to chat with skype contacts or Facebook contacts? Or is it only oovoo to oovoo contact? Because if it is I wager that more than likely 0 % of your friends will have it installed.

    Yahoo Messenger

    The latest version of Yahoo messenger gives you iPad2 to PC video calling. Plus you can swtich from the front to rear camera as you can in facetime.

    Also I found that the picture quality using messenger was far better than skype when chatting to UK

    One of my daughters has an iPad2 and I have an iPad1, and we talk frequently on Skype as she is overseas. I can see her, but obviously she can't see me (fortunate for her, lol). I also have Skype installed on my PC, with video working both ways when I use that.

    It will be interesting to see what MS does with Skype; let's hope they don't mess with it too much as it is very useful, works well and is the most widely-used way to make video calls. It is good that there are other programs gaining ground and getting more market share, as this should help to keep Skype/MS on its toes.

    So I can fire up oovoo, and call my skype based clients/friends with it, and they answer on their end using skype?

    That's not what the app seems to do. It's looking to invite friends and make friends join oovoo itself.

    I'm looking for a oovoo to skype or face book connection. Hense my question.

    Or am I wrong?
