I used my phone’s FaceTime option for the first time last night, and I was fully impressed. Even though my parents and I were both sitting in front of our iMacs and could have easily Skyped we were tickled to use this option. I got to take my parents on a tour of our apartment, they got to say hi to Brady (he growled at them) and it was all around an easy experience. It’s much less formal than Skype, in the way that you don’t have to set up a “date”. Someone just has to call and someone else answer. We were also really impressed with how real time the experience was. We didn’t experience any delays or freezing like we often do with Skype.
Easy as pie. Less calories.
