    iPhone 4 front facing camera
    Will developers be able to incorporate the front facing camera into their apps or is it restricted to only apples face time

    Specs:
    iMac 2010 27" QuadI7 OSX10.11, iMac 2008 OSX10.11, MBP Late2011OSX10.11 , iPad Air, iPhone 3GS
    I was sort of wondering the same thing. It would be nice for say Yahoo chat and AIM if one could use the camera from time to time.

    Specs:
    iMac Core i5(3.6 GHz) 8 GB RAM, MBP C2Duo(2.4 GHz) 4 GB RAM, MB C2Duo(2.4 GHz) 2 GB RAM
    I don't see why developers wouldn't have access to it, although they may be limited to wifi only, just as facetalk is (as far as streaming is concerned). I seem to remember a reporter at WWDC say something in passing about how anything that called the camera API automatically had the ability to flip from back to front camera.
    shameless plug for my blog

    It was announced that developers will have the opportunity to utilize the front facing camera. Skype has already said that they're going to work on updating their app.

    It's a shame that FaceTime wont be available via 3G, that would have been pretty sweet

    Yes. Also, I hope the speakerphone is louder.
