    Guys, no need to trash his thread. He was just trying to help. If you know about it, just ignore the thread and let other people who don't read about and download it, to try it out for themselves (whether it works or not is a different story)

    I have also tried this app and got it to work from my phone to Skype. I could see the other person great, but for them to see what I was pointing at I had to keep the phone really still. Next I would like to get it working phone to phone, not sure if it's possible.

    although the turning of the phone around does seem odd i can still see a huge benefit to using this on the incredible. for example the company i work for tends to buy other companies and when i go out for a site visit i am always sending pictures back to the others then have to try and explain to them the pictures. if i could set up a video call i could easily show them what i am looking at while talking to them. (and my phone doesn't have to be connected to wifi to use it :)

    i think it requires a subscription to make calls to cell phones, but if the person has fring or skype then its free.

    If HTC will just get the tv adapters shipped, it will be one heck of a video conference!!!

    Not sure what drama I missed. I used Fring to make Skype video calls on my front-facing camera equipped Nokia a few months ago. I am still using Fring for Skype video calls, too bad we don't have a front facing camera, but it works fine for parties and such.

    I have the incredible, fring and skype. I read the manuals, but for the life of me I can't figure out how to make a video call. I may be a droid newb but Im a computer savvy mac user for years.
    I don't even know how to add a contact on fring. Maybe my fring download is defective.
    If anyone is inclined, could you please post a step by step way to connect skype on the PC (mac in my case) to the Dinc, all video, using fring?

    thanks

    I have an incredible too and got fring working with skype. When you have fring running, press Menu, then Add-ons. Press Skype and enter your skype ID and password. Your skype contacts should then show up on the main fring page. Mine did not show up at first, but a few hours later when I went into fring, they were there. Press on the contact you want to call, then press on the blue camera icon for a video call. It will tell you if the contact is online or not.

    If you're just now creating a skype account, you have to download skype on your computer and set up your friends there. Any friend you add has to be confirmed - they will have had to allow you to see their contact info and stuff.

    If you just want to add a fring contact, select Menu/Add friend and type in the fring contact name. You can call me to test it if you want - I'll leave mine on for a few hours. fring id: kayst2437
