FaceTime for Mac makes it easy to talk, smile and laugh with friends and family on their iPhone 4, iPad 2, iPod touch or Mac. Getting started is quick and easy — simply enter your Apple ID and you're ready to go. Whether you're talking to someone on an iPhone or on another Mac, video calls with FaceTime look great. There's no better way to keep all your favorite faces just a click away.

Simple to Get Started
• Setup is quick and easy – just enter your Apple ID.
• With just one click, you can make a video call to an iPhone 4, iPad 2, iPod touch, or another Mac.

Easy-to-Organize Contacts
• Make calls using your existing Address Book contacts – you don’t have to enter your contacts from scratch.
• Add the people you call most often to your Favorites list.
• Quickly review your past calls with Recents.

High-Definition Video

• A Mac with a standard-definition camera delivers up to VGA-quality video for Mac-to-Mac calls.

Elegant Interface
• Window and playback controls fade away so the focus stays on your conversation.
• View transitions smoothly when an iPhone 4, iPad 2, or iPod touch user switches from front to rear cameras or from portrait to landscape views.
• FaceTime's widescreen aspect ratio makes it easy for families and groups to participate in a call.
• Enjoy your video call full screen, using every inch of your beautiful Mac display.

Ring Anywhere, Any Time
• Incoming calls ring on your Mac, even if FaceTime isn’t running.
• If you have more than one Mac, incoming calls ring on every one so you can answer on the Mac that’s most convenient.

*Video calls require a built-in FaceTime camera, an iSight camera (built-in or external), a USB video class (UVC) camera, or a FireWire DV camcorder; and a 128-Kbps upstream and downstream Internet connection.

Version 1.0.5 works as it should

Version 1.0.5 works as it should, in fact it seems to work even better then facetime ever did for me, which after the fiasco surrounding the version 1.0.4 update from last week is a big relief for folks like me who rely on facetime for video chat while on the road. As much of a drag as it was to not have facetime and have to rely on skype for a week, a one week turnaround to provide a fix is a decent turnaround time. FYI in case it helps anyone, I deleted/uninstalled version 1.0.4 before installing version 1.0.5. In fact, I had no choice but to uninstall 1.0.4 if I was to install 1.0.5. For some reason, the App store seemed to think I already had installed version 1.0.5, so the "update" button was not available, instead it showed "installed." Once I did that, the installation was a breeze and the app works as well, if not better, then it ever did.

I no longer have a title

After all of the complaints of those of us who were upset and inconvenienced by the bugs in the previoius update for FaceTime I would like to exhale a long sigh and offer a "Thank You" for the belated fix.

New Version Works Great!!

Thanks for fixing this app for us "legacy" users!! Login now works and FaceTime calls connect properly. Next Release--Can FaceTime Voice-only calls be added--Please!!
