    It makes sense. A simple app for calling someone without needing an account. For more specialized features there's Hangouts.

    You want it to be easily accessible? Build it into android like FaceTime is built into iOS. It actually upsets me that this hasn't been done yet.

    You need be more convincing than 'it's just easy simple to use' for users who already have the access to Skype and other video calling services

    So obvious these two are iphone users from this so-called "review".
    "Just don't expect much" at the end is totally missing the point. If face-time was this basic they would be like "its simplicity is so beautiful!"
