2011 - Modern Interfaces: Tango for Windows to stand out over Facetime

Tango for Windows interface
One of the Skype competitors, which appeared as a result of the growing mobile video chat popularity, Tango - has released an app for windows-desktops today. Previously, it worked only on smartphones and tablets running iOS and Android. This is certainly good news for those who use Tango, but for us another thing is more interesting. The fact is that Tango's windows-interface looks exactly like iPhone. Can you imagine what we have come to? Not so long ago the first mobile devices on Windows Mobile copied desktop interface (with icons and Start menu), so that people understood how to work with them. And now developers create desktop interfaces looking like mobile apps to make them more familiar for users. Of course, it's too early to talk about the Post-PC era, but the mobile devices can play on an equal footing with desktops.
