Calls made from the Mac Book Air to the i Phone 4 and the i Pad 2 video looked clean, but the edges were still fuzzy.
For the i Pod touch and i Pad 2, launching the Face Time application activates the front-facing camera immediately, so your own first-person video takes up the entire screen.
A list of Face Time contacts is transparently overlaid on the right side of the display and allows users to make calls by tapping a contact's name.
Calls made to the i Phone 4 from another i Phone 4 were clear at a glance, but a deeper look revealed that they contained some pixel noise.
The edges of our face looked only slightly less blurry than on video calls made with Skype and Tango, but it was much better than Oovoo, which struggled over Wi-Fi.
When you pull up a contact with an active Face Time account, Face Time appears with options to text, call, or e-mail that person.
