Video Chat; why is there no better app?!

Hello,

 

I love my BlackBerry PlayBook; however, I really dislike that I am not able to video chat with my friends and family because they don't have the PlayBook. Why is there no oovoo or skype app? BlackBerry is such a great company with great products, but this is a major set back for me. I don't see why the video chat app that is already on there won't let you call people that have facetime being that facetime uses email addresses anyway.

 

Will there be apps available soon??? I have tried just about everything to try and video chat with it. PLEASE make apps available or make the already exisiting video chat app able to call non PlayBook users.

I would hate to get rid of my tablet because of this.

 

Thanks!

Thank you for responding. Will the app store have more of the Android apps and apple apps so blackberry users can play with other mobile OS? Do you know?

I found a website called faceflow.com on the crackberry forums I have tried it a few times it allows you to video chat right from the website using your browser it works with crome and firefox so far it works pretty good.
