Tutorial: How To Build An iOS Video Chat App With OpenTok And Parse

I’ve mentioned the OpenTok framework for video chat, and the popular Parse backend service provider.

Here’s a tutorial submitted by Nirav Bhatt demonstrating step-by-step how to create a video chat app.  The tutorial uses OpenTok platform for the face-to-face video chat, and Parse for the back-end.

The tutorial is very complete (6000+ words!) and contains features such as a lobby displaying nearby users, and the ability to create and receive (or decline) calls.

This is an image representing the chat app built with the tutorial in action:
