Skype 3.0 for the Apple iPhone has just been released. This new version, for the first time, allows users to make video calls to other Skype users.
Apple included a front-facing camera in its latest smartphone, as well as the most recent iPod touch, bringing video chatting to this platform over an app called FaceTime. Since then, other third-party developers have added support for this camera to their video apps, and now the 500-pound gorilla of VoIP software has joined in.
The new version of Skype enables users to make video calls with all Skype desktop versions and with others using this app on the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad users. This feature works over Wi-Fi or a 3G connection.
Pricing and Availability
Skype 3.0 is free, and is available now in the on-device Apple App Store.
It runs on devices running iOS 3.0 and above. This also includes ones without front-facing cameras, but without video support.
