Tango Home Free

It’s giving Skype a run for it’s money and students another way to stay in touch…

Tango is a relatively new way to do free video calling, and it’s growing faster than Skype did. According to writer Quentin Hardy, Forbes magazine, in his article “Call Me, We’ll Tango”, the service already has 13 million users in 190 countries and adding close to a million every two weeks. He states, “Tango calls are good, not great, and can be done with or without looking at yourself as you talk. You can switch from front to back camera to show things as you talk. By this summer Tango will likely start charging for enhanced features.”

Tango works on iPhones, Android and will on Microsoft Windows Phone 7 when released. It comes fully functional on 25 phones, on at least 70 models, and tablets.

Like Skype, Tango is a great way to stay in touch with those back home on a regular basis without going broke. And I’m sure it’ll eventually come in handy for job interviews too.

But before you leave for college…please teach your parents how to use it.
