A Month back Fring released an app that lets you receive video calls in view-only mode but not send video to the other party. But the Limitation has now been broken and it’s now possible to Make Video calls from iPhone over 3G and WiFi.
The new app is called Live Link 3G and is currently available in Japanese App Store [iTunes Link]. Developed by Yudo Inc., the application allows two iPhone users to engage in video calls, with remarkably smooth video and solid audio and no need of jailbreaking, it’s on App Store.
Of course, since the iPhone doesn’t have a front facing camera, most conversations will feature you and your receiver showing the other’s live location and activity. Nevertheless, you can use a mirror like iSnapMe to convert rear camera to front camera.
Apart from that the video phone function works as advertised and this is the reason its rated 4+ stars. The application is available for free download until March 22nd, after which the price will jump to 1,000 yen ($11).
Now you must be wondering if it’s on Japanese App store how can you get it? Well, there are two ways:
- Signup for a Japan based iTunes App store (free registration) just select Japan and a relevant city, zip while registering.
- Or Google for “Live Link 3G IPA” (of course needs Jailbreaking).
You should be able to get it 😉
