ALL THINGS ABOUT FACETIME IN IPAD 2
As we understand, together, this feature is the killer app that staying able to attract market attention. With the presence of cameras in this new iPad, then we can interact between users iPad 2, iPhone 4, and Mac are face to face wherever located.
This application appears first together with the launch of Apple's brand-new mobile phone then, the iPhone 4. This feature is considered to be Apple's answer to similar features in 3G phones. But not Apple's name if only pinch an idea another application without any modifications.
In contrast to video calls, which became one of the 3G service, Facetime deliberately not made to run on mobile channels. Some have guessed, this is deliberately done by Apple to play safe, eliminating the `external factors' cause of the decline of quality air-videocall. So, Facetime only be used via WiFi channels. (unless the iPhone 4 you have a jailbroken).
By walking in the path of the WiFi connection will be relatively stable and the quality of discussion would be better than using the 3G.
The story continues and iPad 2 came to bring the same features. The only advantage is the wide screen that will be more satisfying when you really want to meet with Facetime. Although with the same resolution (VGA) will look not solid in the screen's width.
Then how do you use?
1. Facetime access through its application icon.
2. Enter your Apple ID. Email on your Apple ID will be a kind of telephone number (ID Facetime) to be contacted from the other device. That is different from Facetime on the iPhone 4 that using the phone number attached to the device.
3. If you do not have, or want to differentiate with an account registered in the Macbook for example, has just made. Click create new account. Enter accurate data on columns that appear.
4. If you've signed in, you'll find pages, where the name of the contact will be on the right side. If the iPad 2 you do not have a contact, click the plus sign to enter a peer Facetime email and your family.
5. Click the contact to make the connection Facetime.
What can we do at Facetime?
A. You can move the small screen (which is a preview of the look we had seen the other person) to every corner of the screen for video calls better. But you can not remove it.
B. You can change the position of the screen, only with iPad rotate from portrait to landscape or vice versa. It's very useful if you intend to bring more people in one camera at once.
C. You can press the home button to open another application. Discussion (voice) with the speaker will still take place, it's just across from there, you're considered pause Facetime. You could go back to touch the green bar above the home screen.
D. You can change the camera used to be displayed on the screen the other person to touch a button switches the camera (rightmost camera image with the arrows on either side).
TIPS Improving Quality Facetime
1. Make sure you start using Facetime in a room full of light. Or at least enough. Because if you do it in the room is less light, the image will be visible noise.
2. Use the most powerful WiFi signal and using high-speed Internet provider.
3. If your face is too big for Facetime. Try using landscape orientation.
