Apple updates FaceTime for Snow Leopard with a connection bug fix

Remember the good ol’ days when FaceTime wasn’t included with each Mac? Back then, you had to download it from the Mac App Store in order to make video calls to iPhone owners (though iChat could still be used make Mac-to-Mac calls). Even today, that standalone app is still available on the Mac App Store for $.99—and for some reason it’s still the #7 paid app on the entire store!

Given its apparent popularity three years after its launch, it makes at least a little sense that Apple updated the app today to fix a bug that could prevent users from connecting to FaceTime calls. Of course, if you’re on anything newer than Snow Leopard, you don’t need this update, but anyone still running OS X 10.6 who already purchased the app can get the free update to resolve the problem.

For Snow Leopard users who haven’t already made the purchase, the app is $0.99 on the Mac App Store.
