Tango Text, Voice & Video is designed to help you keep in touch with the people however you prefer. There are tons of options for how you can communicate and who you share things with, so you can keep everyone important informed about your life as easily as possible.
Contact integration: Tango will import your Facebook friends, as well as all of your contacts from your phone, so you'll have everyone listed in the same place. This also makes it easy to invite your contacts to start using the app as well.
New friends: In addition to connecting with the people you already know, Tango also enhances your ability to make new friends in the area by suggesting other users you can connect with who are nearby. This list of suggestions is continuously changing, so you can continue to check back and find new leads.
Some bugs: When Tango suggests people you should send invites to, there doesn't seem to be any reason it chooses some over others. In fact, it suggested that we send an invitation to "identified as spam" during testing. But since you probably know who you want to invite anyway, that's not too much of an issue.
A lot going on: With all of the options for connecting and sharing, it can be easy to miss some things and hard to find others. It seems like the app is almost trying to be too many things at once, and it's easy to lose sight of the fact that it was originally a VoIP service.
Tango is free, and all of its features work well. Calls are clear, and the ability to video chat is nice. While all the additional features sometimes make it hard to stay on top of everything, you'll likely settle into your own usage patterns and only use the items that help you stay in touch the best.
