iChatr brings "chat-roulette" action to iPhone 4

iChatr chat-roulette for iPhone 4

Want to chat with random strangers via your iPhone 4 front-facing camera, and expose yourself to every hope and horror that entails? Well, yeah, you guessed it -- there's now an app for that (and we're guessing, like LED flashlights, there'll be many soon enough).

Given the demographics you're more likely to end up face-to-facing a pant-less Mosspuppet than an anything-less Angelina Jolie, but you launch your app and you take your chances, and you can always swipe to go to someone else.

As always, if you try it out let us know -- in G-rated terms -- how it works for you.

Alexander says:

Is there another reason for this app except for the one I'm thinking about? :-)

Art VanBurenBoy says:

As Stiifler would say Hang out with your wang out ! :lol:

Kevin Doyle says:

From a technical stand point it works great and is really fast and smooth. On the downside it has zero options other than swipe.
I guess I got lucky not to come across any nudity, but I did try it first thing in the morning and only for five minutes.

fastlane says:

I don't even have to try this to know that it's all dudes and fatties using it. :lol:

himmel902 says:

Only took 4 swipes untill I came across a penis ha ha.

dloveprod says:

How long before this gets banned? I downloaded it just in case for when I get my iphone 4.

tweger01 says:

I tried it a few times and it wouldn't even connect.

Nick says:

Man this is sooooo wrong, the majority of the iPhone owners are the tweens. This can probably be good for the girls I guess o.O?!

Limegrntaln says:

Yeah there is no way that you are going to be able to keep the teenagers off this thing. Every time I get on the AT&T Facebook page I see "Im 13 and I just got my iPhone 4" This sounds like a good idea. But its dangerous.

Ralph says:

Hey jack wagons, you have to press a button saying you're over 17 to use this or download it. So stop trippin

mike says:

Oh thats smart press a button now thats true age verification genius. Doesnt stop teens from lying.

Mike says:

This app is a fail. I sat there with my iPhone between my legs for 45 minutes and could not connect once. What a waste.

himmel902 says:

Between your legs mike ey wonder what the camera was seeing

Da3lynx says:

Wow Mike, way to broadcast what perverted thing you were doing... Lol!

spades1412 says:

This app is a huge waste of time. Nothing worth watching.

TomOfTx says:

I put my kids Tickle Me Elmo doll in front of the camera and let it talk. Mostly creepy looking dudes were on there. :)

Eisforme says:

This app is retarded.
However, my brother downloaded it and we took a Source magazine and held the camera over one of the girl's face in it and it was ridiculously funny watching people react to it! Nothing dirty or anything, but this one guy's eye's like perked up. Another person said, "D***, Girl! You fine!" lol. Priceless! I guess you had to be there. I was rolling for ten minutes. I needed a laugh like that.
I can't see this app lasting long in the app store. IMHO.

Dexter says:

mrngh1 says:

Josh says:

I wasn't on there more than a minute showing my buddy and low and behold some couple set up their camera to capture them doing the naughty ............good lord I could have done without seeing this guys junk.

Well I've been addicted to flashing, caused by VZW not wanting us to have access to the GPS on our phones. So I identified the threads that tought me to flash my phone. Can even cook a small, but you'll find significantly far better chefs on the market, so I'm happy to toast their work. I at present am running Lioryte's 23529 develop from the WinMo 6.five.one over a Samsung Omnia with VZW. So now I've won the Behold 2 from Samsung, been playing with it for a couple of months.I have it rooted, I have BusyBox on it and aHome UI. looks good, works excellent, but as well much bloatware. (The Cube and additional) Tried the Galaxy trick, quite fast and complete of useable memory. It is Android one.5 pure. I would rather update the B2, not revert to Galaxy, and construct from that. I will if that's the only way, I'll check new Odins for that B2 and do whatever assist I can to assist the B2 community advance the top quality of this telephone.I'm looking forward to helping make the B2 the greatest Android cellphone available.
