Enable FaceTime On The iPad Running iOS 4.2.1[How To]

Face Time is an international network of professionally trained freelance hair and makeup artists. It certainly would have been a better experience if the iPad offered a front-facing camera and FaceTime. You can now solve this problem with a hack named “Intell“. The hack installs the iPod touch 4 FaceTime application on the iPad, with a full-screen, optimized user interface. Although the iPad user will not be shown due to the lack of a camera, the audio still works and the mute button is present, too.
