FaceTime is an app that connects people from wherever they are in the world. Download FaceTime for iOS to simplify the way you stay in touch with your family, friends, and colleagues, no matter where you are right now.
Design — 5/5
The app is a simplistic yet stylish platform where you can see one or many video boxes of the people you are talking to. The interface is made to suit any iOS updates and merge with your overall screen well.
With the main menu being transparent, you can see your image in the background as you’re scrolling down the contacts. After initiating a video call, the interface unfolds completely. This gives you a nice, high-quality face-to-face interface for a convenient call.
Usability — 4.5/5
To start using the app, you need to install it from your AppStore. It doesn’t take much space and, in some cases, comes by default in your app library.
Since the app is meant for iOS users only, it automatically synchronizes with your contact list. It helps FaceTime determine the users that already have the app installed. Thus, releasing you from the necessity to invite them to start using the app.
After a call has been initiated, you get to see your friends and family on the screen. The more participant there are in a call, the smaller their logs become to assure good visibility.
Make sure to have a stable Internet connection so that there a no interruptions or whatsoever. Also, press the ‘More’ tab to access other functions, which might prove useful while talking.
To end the call, press the ‘End’ button at the bottom. Even if you have accidentally ended the call, you can always check your call history to restore it or keep track.
Features — 5/5
What makes the app different from other similar add-ons is its 100% iPhone compatibility. Thanks to connecting only iOS users, the app assures a perfect, high-resolution connection without bugs or disruptions. As for the camera, it’s possible to switch between your main and frontal images to show it to the other participants.
Also, you can add more and more people to your conversation as it carries along. Each participant receives a very visible place on your on-screen interface without being overlapped by others.
In case you conduct a regular call or meeting, you can feature certain calls as your favorite. This allows you to access the most frequently used contacts without scrolling for their name and phone number again.
In-App Purchases — 4/5
Since the app is completely free-of-charge and normally comes as a default set-up application, there are no in-app purchases. Moreover, the app doesn’t charge your phone credit or require a monthly/yearly subscription.
The Bottom Line
