harassing Apple representatives through FaceTime tests on your iPhone 4, then worry not. An application has just been released that allows iPhone 4 users to embark upon a Chatroulette-style game with one another through their iPhone 4 handsets. For those of you who've been living in a shell for the past year: Chatroulette is an online game-of-sorts that connects your computer's webcam with the webcam of another Chatroulette player who could be anywhere in the world. So far the game is mostly associated with curious costumes, practical jokes, and indecent exposure - but every now and then you do find somebody who just wants to talk. With the release of Apple's iPhone 4, which comes with FaceTime - a video calling app that utilizes the handset's front-facing camera - many Chatroulette fans have been calling for a Chatroulette app for iPhone 4. And while that hasn't arrived (yet), the next best thing has just bounced into the App Store. It's called iChatr, and - though it doesn't connect to Chatroulette's network - the concept is pretty much the same. Here's the basics: You launch up the application (which is free, and available now in the App Store), ensuring that you're connected to a Wi-Fi network. You plug in your headphones - otherwise you won't be able to hear the person you connect to. Then iChatr finds another person who's just launched the app (or is in-between chats) , and connects you to them through sight and sound. If you get bored with your iChatr-friend, simply swipe the screen and the app will fine somebody else, Chatroulette-style. check out iChatr in the App Store now! It's completely free, and all you need to play the game is an iPhone 4, a Wi-Fi network, and a sense of adventure. Let us know what you think of iChatr in the comments box below!
