hi i was just wondering if the developers have released any new apps that can use the new ipod touch's front camera almost like facetime but instead of connecting to another touch, maybe connecting to a computer w/a webcam? i kinda doubt there would be anything out there like this but i thought skype would be all over this and introducing a way to skype from ipod to computer. and it seems like the only app that can be used with this camera is facetime. which is useless unless you know someone else with the ipod or iphone 4. well thank you and an answer is greatly appreciated

    My internet search did not identify anything like that. 

    In fact, my search didn't show anything that is not listed in the AppStore. You can watch there for addition of new apps that may do what you want.

    Skype already has an App for iPod. You can keep an eye on Skype development of video and other features either from the AppStore, Skype's App page, or the Skype's iPhone forum.



    and it seems like the only app that can be used with this camera is facetime. which is useless unless you know someone else with the ipod or iphone 4.


    Not true. Even if you do not want to use your camera, it is not useless for many of us.

    iPod touch comes with the Camera app that uses the camera to capture still images and video clips.

    Other apps that can use the camera such as IncrediBooth are available at the AppStore.



    well thank you and an answer is greatly appreciated


    You're welcome.
