FaceTime, Apple's answer to Skype, is one of the favorite video calling apps that allows you to keep in touch with family and friends through Apple devices. Getting started is easy, when you open FaceTime, you will see yourself on the screen and be required to enter your Apple ID. It sets up quickly, adding your address book directly from the Mac so that you can immediately call anyone who is available to chat with you.
You can use every inch of the Mac display with the full screen display option, while the wide aspect ratio makes it easier for the whole family to participate in a group call. If a caller is using an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch and they rotate the device, then the view smoothly transitions from portrait to landscape and vice versa.
With a minimal interface FaceTime is a great video chat application that is easy to use and is certainly one of the best options for helping you communicate between your Mac and family or friends using Apple devices.
