Months after teasing us at CES with an announcement of Skype's native VoIP client for the iPhone, the free Skype for iPhone will finally be available to download from the iTunes App Store sometime on Tuesday.
Skype will allow iPhone users to make free calls to other Skype users when they are connected to a WiFi hotspot? That's it? You can't call people who are not on Skype?
Yes this is what I have been waiting for.
I use a logitech cordless handset but it needs windows to run as there are no mac drivers. Another programe I don't need windows to run-even better. Soon I will be compleatly mac based. well here's hoping as I have had it windows (yes I do run Vista on Bootcamp OSX and the contrast is incredible)
It works a treat too.
I put in my user name and password and there were all my contacts. You just scroll to select them. It works with skype out too. To test it I called my brothers land line in the UK from Australia-it has speaker phone too. It was very very clear, no echo much better than our old logitech hand set. He said I sounded fine, better than our old phone.
With skype we just purchase say $20 and it lasts us for 6 months and most of our cals are international. We never use it skype to skype though but skype out is brilliant.
Thankyou WebmasterWorld for bringing this to my attention.
Yes Three have it on their mobiles but you can't do skype out so not much use.
It has made my day.
When I make a skype out call there is a lot of silence and me going hello hello hello, and the person Iv'e called going hello hello hello and then just as the other side is about to put the phone down they can hear me.
Also sometimes when you pick a contact it crashes.
Overall very polished but not there yet-we need an update.
