You really cannot ignore 700 million users that trust Skype. It can be a great Android to iPhone video chat app. There are a lot of cool features that this app has to offer, from the most basic instant messaging to a more complex VoIP, but the reason why Skype still leads the way when it comes to video chat apps is the fact that it is a familiar brand. It has been around even before smartphones became a mainstream commodity. The fact that it has adjusted to the needs of its consumer is comforting. It was easy to use way back when the desktop is the main tech item around, and it has evolved without losing its familiar and friendly features.
If you are fond of Facebook (and let’s face it, who isn’t?) ooVoo will enable video chat Android to iPhone for you. No need to search for your friends’ contact information, the app can automatically link your Facebook contacts. How cool is that? Video and instant messaging would cost you nada for ooVoo users, but you do need to pay a certain amount if you contact non ooVoo numbers. You can chat with up to 12 friends with ooVoo. If you want to be on the loop on what is going on with your friends or if you are the type who would be social media-vocal, then we are sure you will love their quick status updates.
