Apple’s FaceTime beta is dead. Long live FaceTime 1.0! Apple’s video chat software for communicating between Macs and video-capable iOS devices has hit version 1.0 and entered the Mac App Store. FaceTime for Mac now supports HD video calls. Supported Intel-based Macs can receive HD video from HD-sending devices, and the newest MacBook Pros can send HD video from their new FaceTime cameras. Also new is the much-appreciated capability to edit and add FaceTime contacts without needing to launch Address Book. FaceTime is available for free with the new MacBook Pros, but costs everyone else 99¢. ($0.99 new, 16.8 MB)
