Vichat for Facebook video chat HD app review

Reviews

Introduction

Vichat for Facebook video chat HD has been designed to enable you to use your iPad in conjunction with Facebook to initiate video chats with your friends and family, but from what I’ve seen so far it fails to deliver on all fronts.

The best iPad apps for Facebook

This is not one of the better video chat apps and is not really worth downloading. So, I thought it would be a good idea to write a quick review about it so that you can save your time and not bother with it.

Non-Functional

I had my doubts upon first downloading this video chat iPad app because of the amount of negative feedback it had received from users on the iTunes description page.

It is meant to make it easy for you to start video calls with your Facebook contacts, but this feature simply doesn’t work.

Best Avoided

Vichat for Facebook video chat HD asks for permission from the official Facebook app, but then nothing really happens beyond that so I’ve been unable to do so much as start a text chat, let alone perform a video call.

If you’re looking for a decent app for video calls then I think you’re better off sticking with Skype for now because this development is a dud for sure!

Pros & Cons

Pros

  • This app is supposed to provide full chat and video call functionality that works in line with your Facebook app; however, it really seems to disappoint on pretty much all fronts

    I have yet to find an app that offers video chats alongside Facebook so please don’t hold your breath just yet!

Cons

  • There have been numerous complaints from users who claim that this app, quite simply, doesn’t work; I have experienced all of the same issues with frequent crashing, lack of integration with the official Facebook app, and an overall temperamental nature in the general operation of the interface

Final Words

Vichat for Facebook video chat HD for iPad is a disappointing addition to the Social Networking category of the App Store, so my advice is to stick with Skype and steer clear of this one.
