We all know Yahoo soon will release application for voice and video call running on 3G or WiFi.
And by today they already lunch for iphone app.

http://www.ymessengerblog.com/blog/2010/10/12/latest-yahoo-messenger-app-for-iphone

http://www.engadget.com/2010/10/11/updated-yahoo-messenger-app-now-live-in-app-store-3g-video-call/

http://www.phonearena.com/htmls/New-Yahoo-Messenger-app-to-support-video-calling-on-Android-and-iPhone-article-a_13868.html

I hope Yahoo release best among the best.
I’m always using Yahoo on my PC to communicate and chat.
I'm android user with Samsung Galaxy S with without voice plan only data plan.
I'm always looking messenger with voice/video call without any commercial, or other word is free application over 3G or WiFi data plan.
Also I don't like application running in background (when boot) after installation, or running as service unable to close completely.
It makes your phone drain so much battery!

So far I tried and below my opinion:

1. Fring:
   - Android to Android: Yes (Chat, Voice, Video Call)
   - PC to Android: No
   - Multi Messenger Add-On: Yes (Google, Yahoo, ICQ, AIM, SIP, Local Address book)
   - Commercial effect: Yes (fringout; starting at version 2.1.1.24)
   - Running on background on boot: Yes
   - Running on background as service standby: Yes
   - GUI interface: 7/10
   - Camera: Unable to switch between front and back (default front). If camera doesn’t have front camera will showing on back camera.
   - Website: http://www.fring.com
   - My comment: Full screen on video call not available. Starting to do commercial I don’t like. Quality of voice call or video call so far ok.

2. Skype:
   - Android to Android: ?
   - PC to Android: ?
   - Multi Messenger Add-on: No
   - Commercial effect: I guess most likely yes.
   - Running on background on boot: Yes
   - Running on background as service standby: Yes
   - GUI interface: 8/10
   - Camera: ?
   - Website: http://www.skype.com
   - My comment: Still no improve on my Samsung Galaxy S, unable to run. Only first time after installation, able to run. Subsequences unable to login/sign-in.

3. Tango:
   - Android to Android: Yes
   - PC to Android: No
   - Multi Messenger Add-on: No
   - Commercial effect: Currently No.
   - Running on background on boot: Yes
   - Running on background as service standby: Yes
   - GUI interface: 8/10
   - Camera: It seem able to switch between front and back. I’m not tried yet.
   - Website: http://www.tango.me
   - My comment: People said are easy to add friends and contact. To me I said NO. Difficult to add other contact, required invitation using only email or sms. No manual add friends/contacts. (When I invite using other friend using CC email to tag other person, I guess will same with SMS).

4. imovicha
   - Android to Android: Yes
   - PC to Android: Yes
   - Multi Messenger Add-on: No
   - Commercial effect: Currently No.
   - Running on background on boot: No
   - Running on background as service standby: No
   - GUI interface: 4/10
   - Camera: Only back camera, and facing only landscape. Not able tilt to portrait.
   - Website: http://movicha.com
   - My comment: So far, application able crosses platforms. From PC to Android. And Android to Android. Very poor quality call and video too much latency.

5. talkonaut

   - My comment: No stable application, hard to navigate, to many buggies. GUI terrible. Tried once possible to call from PC to Android, or Android to PC. Android to Android also able to do so.

Grab quick on this link:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=812548

or

http://www.androidpolice.com/2010/10/19/yahoo-messenger-with-video-calling-ripped-out-of-the-leaked-mytouch-rom-works-great-over-wifi-and-3g-download-it-now/

Try to install 1st "Yahoo_im.apk (1.47 MB)" then 2nd "Yahoo_imvideo.apk (5.33 MB)"

Perhaps I done wrong.. I was installed Yahoo_imvideo.apk then Yahoo_im.apk

Please someone report the result for Samsung Galaxy S GT-I9000 with:
Firmware version: 2.1-update1
Baseband version: I9000DXJG4
Kernel version: 2.6.29 (root@SES604 #2)

Ups..
It seem to be working..
Make sure you use the latest Yahoo Messenger on PC.

Yahoo Messenger:
   - Android to Android: Yes (Chat, Voice, Video Call)
   - PC to Android: Yes
   - Multi Messenger Add-On: No
   - Commercial effect: No
   - Running on background on boot: No
   - Running on background as service standby: Yes
   - GUI interface: 8/10
   - Camera: Unable to switch between front and back (default front).
   - Website: http://messenger.yahoo.com
   - My comment: Unable to make only voice call, it must be voice+video call. It seem video and voice very lag. Although put in hand free on my phone, sound still coming out from speaker phone *very weird*, same like iMovicha. Very lag it seem due to my stupid ISP

Anyway how about yours..?
