news articles on dating abuse - Facetime hookups
If you place video calls mostly with other i OS device or Mac owners and you are always connected to Wi-Fi, then Face Time definitely provides the better experience despite its limitations.
If you call friends with devices other than Apple’s, like to call on the go and away from Wi-Fi or are already a Skype user, then Skype will have you covered.
Skype for i OS also allows you to make calls both through Wi-Fi and cellular, which is one of its biggest assets and something that Face Time does not fully support yet.
When it comes to compatibility, there is no contest between Face Time and Skype.
If you want to use Face Time, you have to be an Apple device owner, since Apple’s own video calling app is only available on i OS devices and on Macs running Lion or Mountain Lion (it runs on OS X 10.6.6 as well, but you need to buy it first).
On the other hand, Skype is available in just about every platform imaginable, ranging from i OS devices to Android and Windows phones and of course, on all major desktop operating systems, including Mac, Windows and Linux.
Despite both being very capable video calling apps and each having its own pros and cons, recommending one over the other is fairly easy, and it will depend entirely on your needs.
Both are open, free, and on paper should perform similarly.
