Editors' Review

Tango Video Calls is a free VoIP application for iOS with high goals, but low performance. The app is very easy to use, but its interface misses the finesse of a native iOS application such as FaceTime.

With its intuitive interface, most users will be able to skip the video tutorial and get started right away, especially those who've used a VoIP app before. Tango Video Calls does offer some great features, such as the FaceTime-ish video call (the primary aim of the app) or (what we liked the most) video messaging. We loved the concept of breaking down the wall between mobile operating systems, and we do value the initiative from Tango's developers. It was so good to have a video chat with our friends running Android, which isn't an option with FaceTime. Another feature we loved is the capability to receive Tango calls without the need to continuously keep the app running in the background. This prevents Tango from being a data and (most importantly!) battery hog. We did have some issues with the video quality of the calls, but these didn't detract from the app's overall usefulness.

We also liked the app's capability to switch between cameras, similar to Skype or FaceTime, but the images weren't as crisp as during a FaceTime call. What is good, though, is that Tango is not limited to Wi-Fi connections; it can also use your 3G connection, which makes it very handy.

Despite a few video and image issues, we highly recommend this app for its ease of use and its capability to cross platforms.

"Great app! works wherever & whenever FaceTime fails :)"

June 13, 2014  |  By AbbyF_1

 |  Version: Tango Text, Voice & Video 3.6.89518

Pros

Great app for video chat with family & kids! The cool free features are much of excitement for the toddlers while the games are so much fun for the older ones. The quality is very good. It always beats Skype & FaceTime (which their quality is very bad in our house).

Cons

I like it to be more "clean" without all the notifications on the lower bar.

Summary

It's nice to have 1 free app that can offer so much features at the same time! Gaming, Video Chat, cool animations, music (spotify!!!) & now channels? Awesome!

"Free App Easy to Use"

June 13, 2014  |  By Cocolady

 |  Version: Tango Text, Voice & Video 3.6.89518

Pros

I use this app as my main messaging app. My kids love it. My husband uses an Android but we can still use it to do video calling. We all love it! Good quality on video and calls. Many of my friends use it, too. The animated stickers are sooo cute!

Cons

There are some features that I don't like or use that Tango should get rid of. It's making the app a bit too heavy.

Summary

Overall it is a cool and free app. Good quality in video calls
