XenForo Mobile Bundled With Facetime

    This is an extreme request, never likely to happen but would be incredibly awesome. Way more awesome than just putting a stinking tinychat room and adding Meebo or Arrowchat to your site. It's awesome because if Xenforo was bundled with a Mobile theme and had an instant messaging feature that was mostly built to support a 'Facetime' video-conference type feature then a whole new brand of XenForo addicts would come out of the wood works.

    Facetime is the bomb diggity. Crystal clear video and audio, none of the annoying advertisement and UI design of Skype, Yahoo, AIM, Ustream, Tango, Tinychat and the list goes on. FaceTime for XenForo, or a feature like it, would connect friends together, families together and help match people up with acquaintances, future business partners, future husbands and wives even because if a member's xenforo account is verified in Admin CP and added to the Facetime Usergroup then that's less of a chance of people 'hooking up' with trannies (member's who pose as the opposite sex}

    Falling asleep as I type this but thought I'd give it a mention.

    I started thinking about it and what I mentioned is a normal feature on cam and porn sites. Basically pay for a subscription to use video. In this case, paid member usergroup and use the Trophy system somehow to gain time to use it or extra features for it. I already do this on my site with www.arrowchat.com which can also be done with cometchat. Software like that make a killing off it's instant messaging and video features. I've seen people on vBulletin begging in JIRA for some kind of instant messaging feature. I doubt it will make it into vBulletin 5 just like I know this idea will never make it into xenForo. I would rather xenForo come with video chat and an instant messaging system than a CMS or Blog any day.
