    I've recently switched to WP from Android, picking up the 1020. I'm loving the phone and WP8 is mostly nice to work with. However, I've been disappointed with Skype. It's a mess and has been well documented on various forums. I guess we can all only guess as to why there is such slow development on this app and why the app performs the worst on its own company's platform...

    Anyway, I'm wondering if anyone uses an alternative to Skype that includes video calling? I was having trouble finding anything. I downloaded QQ messenger, which seemed like it would work okay (and there was enough English to get by), but my girlfriend downloaded QQ for her iPhone and everything seems to be in Japanese (and can't seem to change the language). So, that won't work very well i guess.

    Any other options? I don't use Facebook, if that was an option.

    Many thanks.

    Thanks for the responses. I installed Viber, but I don't see an option for video calling...perhaps I'm missing it?

    I searched for Tango, but no apps came up. Is it in the Store?
