Like lots of us, I guess, I discovered Tango today (one the greatest app !) As I own a Galaxy S, I wonder if we can use the front camera while talking. I know we can do that using the builtin visiocall app.

Does anybody know the hack ?

Nobody tried this out ? – Rob Oct 1 '10 at 12:50
There doesn't seem to be a reason you can't use the front-facing camera. It seems that's what the app is designed for. It even says here that you don't need a front-facing camera. Why you think you need a "hack?" Looks like you just need another person with the Tango app... Maybe I misunderstood your question... – gary Oct 25 '10 at 2:40

The Recent Changes list for v1.4.4857 (released around 11/11/10) states:

  • We added support for front facing cameras on Samsung devices
  • We fixed an issue that was causing some HTC EVOs to reboot when launching Tango

So it looks like they needed to change something specific in their software to let you use the front facing camera, and they've done that now!
