Video calling has been nothing new, but Apple had raised the standard by launching first state of the art video chat for iPhone 4 aka FaceTime. But perhaps there are too many disadvantages of Facetime: First being platform dependent, runs only on iPhone 4, iPod Touch. 2nd being works only on Wifi, not even on 3g.
Movicha promises to kill these two limitations by bringing one app that works on almost any smarpthone, PC platform. The list is comprehensive, it supports:
- iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch)
- Android 2.1 or later
- Windows Mobile 6.5
- Windows XP and Windows 7
- Mac OS X (10.x)
- Blackberry (soon)
Its greatest feature really is its ability to cross-platform video chat from smartphone-to-desktop.
