What's New

NEW - chat over a WiFi local area network instead of Bluetooth. (or you can still chat over Bluetooth when WiFi is not available)

App Description

Live video conference between two iPhones or iPod touches (5th gen) using Bluetooth peer-to-peer. Wifi and cellular data are not used. You must run this app on two devices, each with a front facing camera, in order to video chat between two users.

NEW! Turn off Bluetooth and chat between two phones on the same WiFi local area network.

Drawing Mode enables two users to collaboratively create a colorful sketch on a mirrored canvas utilizing the Bluetooth link while continuing to chat.

Use this fun Bluetooth "video walkie talkie" app when WiFi and cellular data are not available.

POSSIBLE USES:

- Tent to tent during camping trips
- Kids in two different cars on road trips
- Boat to boat, show off that fish
- Pass notes to each other by drawing together
- Virtual presence on a remote control vehicle

Communications limited to Bluetooth range and bandwidth.

Wireless communication links are subject to interference and data loss. This app utilizes an adaptive streaming video algorithm to continuously adjust video quality and bandwidth based on the current condition of the Bluetooth channel. If you are experiencing wireless interference, turn off Bluetooth under General Settings to disconnect your phone from all other Bluetooth connections (e.g., headsets, computers, automobile entertainment systems) and then relaunch the app. Bluetooth and WiFi overlap wireless frequencies; using this app when the phone's WiFi is turned off will generally result in better performance, i.e., higher video framerate and less latency.

Please update to Bluetooth Video Chat version 1.8 on both phones. You must update to version 1.8 on both phones to connect.

The slider bar changes the quality of the video transmitted. The frames per second (fps) transmitted is reported on the screen. This value is affected by multiple factors, including the quality you set, the CPU speed of your device model, the quality setting of the person you are chatting with, and the dynamic condition of the Bluetooth channel you are chatting over.

Please check out "FCW Video Camcorder" and "Anonymovie" app to record videos with your face automatically blocked out and voice disguised. Both by the same publisher.
