Five freaking awesome FaceTime hacks — and a few handy tips

We’ve all been using FaceTime like crazy here at TUAW central — it’s really great to be able to conference with friends in real time without having to arrange things in advance. Nearly all of us have been video-conferencing-ready for years. But with the iPhone 4, there’s no more “Do you have iChat set up?” (or Skype) or “Can I call you now?” time-wasting prologues.

Instead, we can just call. Knowing that your friends have iPhone 4s makes video calling much easier. You don’t have to call or text to arrange the call, you just place it and you’re immediately good to go. We may have already had webcam equipment on hand but it’s only with the iPhone 4 that, at least here at TUAW, we’re actually using video calling.

With that in mind, we’ve been seeing how far we can push the technology. We’ve put together a list of the coolest techniques that we’ve actually tried out and tested and can confirm as working. In no particular order, here they are.
