Face Time

Ap­ple’s video-chat is frozen in time; surely we should have group chat by now?

FaceTime is in­cred­i­bly easy to use, as­sum­ing you want to talk to some­one else who has a piece of Ap­ple kit that’s equipped with a suit­able cam­era. Where it falls down re­ally badly is if you want to talk to two or more peo­ple at once, and they don’t all hap­pen to be in the same room. (Even if they are, things get a bit cosy.) Skype has group video call­ing, en­tirely for free, and Google Han­gouts can do some­thing sim­i­lar. It’s time Ap­ple caught up and made FaceTime a bit more mag­i­cal.
