    Both my missus' and daughter have iphone 4s phones and use FaceTime between them. Is there a good app I can use to join them?

    Thanks.

    Skype and Tango are great as long as they have the apps installed aswell.

    That's the beauty of cross platform / platform independent apps like skype and google talk. They are not exclusive to one particular OS. That's one of the many things that I think are stupid and that I can't stand about Apple's services. Same goes for Blackberry's BBM service. Why would I want to use a service that can only talk to people on iPhones or blackberries? I know people on all 3.

    I use Tango you just have to make sure whoever is using an iphone downloads Tango. I totally agree with the poster above that services just for apple or blackberry are totally ridiculous another one of the many reasons why I use android instead of apple or blackberry.

    cross platform apps give you access to more people on more devices all across the world.

    facetime gives you access to an aging and dwindling marketshare.

    I use Skype, works with Android, ios, and any computer. I think it also works with Windows Mobile but not sure.

    Given that Microsoft owns Skype, yeah, skype works with Windows Phone - beautifully if I might add :)
    Very good integration with contacts on Windows Phone.

    But yes, I vote for skype too :)

    Since Microsoft now owns Skype, I'd say it is a good bet that Skype works on Windows Mobile.
