TinyChat released its first iOS app, compatible with iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod touch (3rd generation), iPod touch (4th generation), and iPad.
TinyChat FB, you to video chat with up to 12 Facebook friends from your smartphone. Users can connect to the app with Facebook after download and it’ll immediately show them a list of their Friends. Clicking on a user will allow you to invite them to chat, sending them a link on Facebook with the message “I’m video chatting on my iPhone, click the link to video chat with me.” Toggling back to your Friends list will allow you to invite others to the chat and you can remove users by pressing long on their name in the Users tab.
TinyChat co-founder Dan Blake tells that unlike other services such as: Fring, Tango or even Skype — TinyChat end users don’t need to have the service installed in order to participate in a chat.
Blake insists that people do, namely teenagers. “Tiny Chat right now doesn’t have a Buddy List and that’s where it needs to be,” he says “Skype is definitely the juggernaut. We’re here to give you more creative ways to use TinyChat over Skype.”
He also says that this app isn’t the be all end all for TinyChat mobile, and that a full featured client for the service is on its way.
TinyChat does over 30 million minutes of video chat a day according to Blake, bringing on a 100K new users a day. The app has raised $1.5 million in funding from triumvirate of Ashton Kutcher, P.Diddy and Lady Gaga and others, who, come to think of it, would probably make a pretty interesting video chat group.
You can download Facebook video chat app from iTunes App Store.
