FaceNow Initiates FaceTime Calls Without The Phone Call

iOS: Much like the FaceTime app on the iPod touch, FaceNow's purpose is to make it easier and faster to make FaceTime video calls from your iPhone without the hassle of menu navigation or making a real, voice call first.

FaceNow is a very simple app. You open it up, add a contact from your address book, and you're ready to go. When you want to make a FaceTime video call, just click their name and the app will bypass all the usual steps and take you straight to the video connection.

FaceNow is available right now and is completely free.

    They spent all this time making an app for something iOS can do natively. Right.

    My iPhone 4 (4.1 iOS) does this normally, it doesn't make a phone call first (I know because I have received a phone call during a facetime call). And there are no complicated menus, I just tap the "facetime" button instead of the phone number button of my contact.

    So is this pointless?
