iPad 2 brings release of iOS 4.3, with FaceTime and Photo Booth

The iPad 2 launches on March 11th, with a new dual-core A5 processor and HDMI Out capability, but what about the software? Apple announced that the iPad currently has 65,000 apps (compared to 100 for Android Honeycomb tablets), and that the iPad 2 will run the new iOS 4.3. iOS 4.3 features performance improvements in Safari, thanks to the addition of the Nitro JavaScript engine. It also brings...

FaceTime hits the Mac App Store for 99c

Apple has just released FaceTime for OS X onto the Mac App Store. The app will take advantage of the 'built-in FaceTime HD camera' or any other iSight-equipped Intel Mac, to bring you Mac-to-Mac and Mac-to-iPhone 4 (or latest generation iPod touch) video calling over Wi-Fi. It supports up to 720p video for those soon to be released Macs sporting fancy new FaceTime HD cameras, or standard VGA...

FaceTime hacked to work on jailbroken iPads

FaceTime for the iPad is here! ... if you've got a jailbroken iPad running iOS 4.2.1 and you're comfortable using the command line to move files, that is. A slightly complicated 7-step hack will get you an iPad-optimized of Apple's popular video-calling app, albeit without the ability to transmit video (due to the iPad's lack of a camera). The instructions are up on 9to5Mac, and you can follow...

Skype for iPhone brings video calls over 3G

A little sooner than expected, Skype has just launched a new version of its iOS app [iTunes] that enables Skype-to-Skype video calls, via Wi-Fi or 3G. Those lucky enough to have an iPhone 4 or 3GS, or 4th generation iPod touch, will be able to make two-way video calls with any other Skype user, including desktop and laptop PC users, and presumably other mobile Skype users on Android or...

FaceTime on an iPhone 3GS with FaceIt-3GS

FaceTime, once the privilege of the iPhone 4 and fourth-generation iPod touch owners only, can now be had, sans Apple's blessing, on the iPhone 3GS. Thanks to the iPhone Islam team (English translation), a jailbroken iOS and Cydia, iPhone 3GS users can now get in on the FaceTime action using FaceIt-3GS. Of course, there's one snag: try as they might, app developers couldn't overcome Apple's...

Is FaceTime a serious security threat? Only if you're completely oblivious ...

Could FaceTime for Mac make it really easy for someone to steal your Apple ID?German Mac site MacNotes.de thinks so, calling FaceTime "a serious threat" to your Apple account. See, once you're logged into FaceTime, you can view your account info, which includes date of birth, security question and security answer. This info could obviously be used by someone malicious to gain access to your...

Facelette -- yet another Chatroulette clone, but for Apple FaceTime

Yes, it might sound like a handy towel for cleaning and refreshing your tired face, but it's not: Facelette is Chatroulette for FaceTime. Just enter your phone number or email address, hit 'FaceTime Me!' and before you know it, you're faced with a white, shiny, Apple-toting penis. Released to the world only 10 hours ago on Hacker News, the developer admits that the 'entire app is as dumb as...

FaceTime comes to the Mac, beta now available for download

During an event in Cupertino this morning, Apple has announced FaceTime for Mac. A beta version of the application is already available to download. This partially addresses one of the biggest gripes FaceTime users have had with the service -- lack of support for video chatting with people on their computers. It only partially addresses it though, since it's only available for the Mac as of now...

Yahoo! Messenger: Is the iPhone-to-PC (and Android) video calling app a FaceTime challenger?

There was once a time when FaceTime was the only iPhone 4 video calling gig in town. Fring entered the ring first, but now Yahoo has joined the video calling party, with an update to their Yahoo! Messenger app. Unlike Apple's current implementation of FaceTime, Messenger allows you to video call over both Wi-Fi and 3G, but if that wasn't enough, you're no longer limited to iPhone-to-iPhone...

FaceTime video chat to hit Windows and OS X desktops soon?

FaceTime, Apple's video chatting protocol, is currently still limited to the newest iOS devices. That might change soon, though, with the next version of Apple's iLife suite of apps. French Apple site Mac4Ever is spreading the rumor that FaceTime will hit the desktop as part of iChat on OS X and as its own Windows app. FaceTime could catch on big time once it's untethered from iOS devices, but...

FacePlant brings FaceTime chat status and visual voicemail to the iPhone 4

So, you've got a new iPhone 4, and you love FaceTime, but you're finding it's just not that useful. It's hard to know when friends are actually going to be on Wi-Fi and available to take a FaceTime call, so you've stopped using it after those first giddy test calls. It sounds like you need FacePlant! This free app with a silly name was produced by the team behind the successful 12seconds video...

Chatroulette app iChatr removed from App Store

Remember when I said that iChatr, the iPhone 4 Chatroulette clone, didn't have as many "gross, naked dudes" as the original Chatroulette? Well, I guess I was wrong, because iChatr has been removed from the App Store due to the behavior of several (gross, naked) users. It was probably inevitable that Apple -- with its mission to offer app store users "freedom from porn" -- would find...

Apple's FaceTime video chat coming to iPad, iPod Touch, and maybe your PC

Apple's FaceTime video chat, which has been knocked by detractors for only working over Wi-Fi and only on the iPhone, might be coming to many more devices soon. According to Boy Genius Report, an upcoming version of IOS has some code that suggests FaceTime will become available for non-iPhone devices like the iPod Touch and the iPad, using Apple IDs instead of phone numbers. Calling using your...

iChatr: Apple's Facetime gets its own Chatroulette clone for talking to strangers

Remember Chatroulette, the faddish video chat service that lets you talk to random strangers? Well, it's got a new best friend: Apple's FaceTime on iPhone 4. Thanks to a free app called iChatr, iPhone 4 owners can FaceTime with other random iPhone 4 owners. Like FaceTime itself, iChatr requires you to be connected to a Wi-FI network. There's no logging in with iChatr, you just jump straight to...

iPhone 4's FaceTime chat feature powers new sex chat businesses

When Steve Jobs video-called Jony Ive to debut the iPhone 4's new FaceTime video chat, a lot of people were impressed, but I doubt too many found it sexy. Well, it turns out that FaceTime might be sexier than anyone expected, with the first FaceTime-powered sex chat business already popping up online. It makes sense, considering how easy FaceTime is to use. The overhead for a sex chat operation...
