    I was wondering what mobile video chat app people are using that works across Android, iOS, and even Mac/PC? I've had great experience using Tango between my Android and my wife's iPhone 4. You can read about a recent experience here.


    But have you found something that also works with Mac/PC? I know that Skype mobile works between Mac/PC and iPhone but not Android yet. Are there any other apps you've used that does this?

    yeah, i love tango, but im also looking for something that gives me at least voice between my phone and computer. fring lets u call fring-to-gtalk but the quality of that was terrible when i tried it. skype works for voice chat, but im looking for an app that can call msn (video/voice)

    Wow I didn't know that Fring works with GTalk. I'll have to give that a try. I really just want Skype to work for Android.

    Any other suggestions?

    So as I'm sure most of you now know there is a new version of Skype for Android that allows video calling on a few Android phones. Droidlife also released a cracked version that extends this capability to a few other Android phones. I just tested it on my Sensation and it worked well.

    So far as I can tell it only works in landscape mode and will only work with the front facing camera but hopefully they will expand these options in the future.
