    Hello Sandystorm,

    Unfortunately, the FFC on the LG Revolution still does not work properly on Tango. It appears that LG uses something different to access the camera on this specific device. We have reached out to LG in hopes of finding a fix for this.

    We apologize for the delay!

    Regards,

    I was going to mention that the Tango developers were working on it, but Randall beat me to it. Someone else mentioned that Fring works, but I've not tried it. - MarkC

    Hey guys,

    We are proud to announce that a newly released Tango update has fixed the front facing camera issue on the LG Revolution. Please look for the latest version of Tango on the Android Market.

    Tango is now the first mobile video calling app to fully support the LG Revolution :)

    Please let me know what you guys think!

    -Randall

  13. Just wanted to come in and say thank you!

    Just tried it out with an Android user and an iPhone user and worked flawlessly both times. Both said my video quality was the best of anyone they've talked with.

    Thanks again!

    I invited my brother to Tango who doesn't even own a smartphone, but does own an iPod touch, and we Tangoed last week for a couple hours with no problems. Switching between cameras and everything! Very cool!
