Hello Mingleheaven.

 

That facility is available. www.faceflow.com is a cross o/s video talk programme which has conference facilities. It is free. It uses the internet browser to ro connect.

Hi Thanks for that.

 

Would you down load the android app for the playbook or go via the browser.

 

Its looking like a possible purchase the playbook if I can get it to do what I want it to do - video chat with people who have iphones/ipad since I can't afford one of them, convert an app so it will accept kindle books.

 

Cheers

Hello Mingleheaven

 

Just ask the other users to go to www.faceflow.com and log in. They make you a 'friend' as you do to them. They and you can both chat. Have a look at the site and watch the video. It really is that easy. The best benefit is that conference facilities are available. The 'skype' app in android is 'one to one' only, ulness you pay extra. This is a free programme. In 2013 when the new BB10 operating system comes out the developer has said that they will have an app available.

 

The 'Book Reader for Epub and Kindle books' app for Playbook is .99 and can read kindle and most other formats. I use only epub. Kobo is provided but I have never found it to my liking.

 

Hope this helps

Hi

 

thanks for that.

 

Looks like I will be purchasing a playbook as I think you have convinced me to take the plunge.

 

Can you explain how the epub works?  The reason I ask is that I have kindle so would like to know how I switch between the two.  Hope that makes sense.

 

Basically I want to be able to purchase kindle books to read on my playbook and kindle still.  I want the option.
