Before, you could only see and type-at other video users.
For years, Microsoft MSN Messenger for Macintosh didn't supported video AT ALL.
Unlike many chat apps, ISPQ VIDEO CHAT has an INTEGRATED COMMUNITY: You can browse profiles andandand member pics, text message with still images and audio clips - and optionally video chat: 1 on 1 or Multi-party.
Community is a key feature sorely missing from some other standalone Mac chat apps.
This is a fully-featured cross-platform videoconferencing program the Apple and PC platform has - in most aspects - what i Chat could have been.
[FYI: ISPQ's parent, Nano Com used to license out it's video conferencing code.
The still VERY popular i CUii software once used it and was both Mac and Windows compatible.
A fallout with Nano Comm led i CUii to rewrite its app from scratch for PC-only.Both seems somewhat-flakey and sorta fail to deliver a commercial quality Messenger video compatible application solution.Recently, Microsoft acquired Skype and is making it the de-facto chat solution for the windows platform, so MSN Messenger has been phased-out.With the explosion of camera enabled Apple IOS devices, along with the Macintosh's increasing market penetration, Apple's Face Time conference app has become a formidable contender with an installed base in the hundreds of millions of i Phone, i Pad and Mac OSX users.It's lack of compatibility with Windows or Andriod OS is unfortunate - but Face Time is a global success regardless.It works, it's fun, has a HUGE community of millions of users - and can be overwhelming sometimes.
