The FaceTime camera, on an iPad 2 or later, iPhone or Mac lets you talk face to face or switch to the front facing camera (Apple calls it the iSight camera) to share what you see around you. And for FREE.
|Turn FaceTime On and Create or Choose Email.
|See your Contacts, Favorites or Recent Calls
Rotate the iPad to use FaceTime in either landscape or portrait. I prefer portrait.
- Add a favorite. Tap + and choose a contact.
- Call a favorite. Tap a name in the list.

Not everyone has an Apple iPade, iPhone or Mac so I will write another article for using Skype. Stay Tuned.
If your other friends or family doesn't have an IOS device, FREE video calls are still possible using Skype. See my article on how to setup and use Skype.
