Default whats the best video chat app qik, tango, fring or oovoo

So after using Cyanogen 6 & 7 here's a little review on what video chat apps work on froyo CM6 and Gingerbread CM7. I figured this would save some of you some time

Qik - works great on CM6 but it force closes on CM7. Video quality is good and audio is ok good enough to do the job

Tango - works great on CM7 with a mod where you can use front and back cameras. But on CM6 it only detects the back camera. Video quality is good but audio not so good

Fring - works on CM7 with out any mods but the video and audio quality is not so good. On CM6 it only detects the back camera.

Oovoo - is the new kid on the block working great both audio and video on CM6. I didn't test it on CM7 so if someone does let me know this app and Qik is the reason why I went back to CM6 from CM7.

I've tried them all too but unfortunately the battery drain from the apps is really poor... I just uninstalled and will reinstall when a friend wants to video chat.

Tango is still upside down for me on FFC using CM7. Changing manufacturer to Samsung in build.prop didn't fix it . Image is right side up using the back camera.

What about Yahoo? It's apparently the only one that works from phone to PC. Can anyone confirm on our devices?

Tango works great for my girl and I using the older version. The updated version has us looking at each other upside down. So if anyone having that problem just revert back to the older version.

Qik I have not tried since I flashed cm. I heard its working on the latest nightly build but have not tried it. I never liked the quality when I used to use it on the stock rom anyways.

Yahoo video chat still gotta be the best though. Video and sound quality are best. Better than qik and tango. And it does not work only from pc to device, it also works from device to device.
