Skype for iPhone Officially Released

Skype for iPhone was officially released and is now available for free download on the Apple App Store. The app adds Skype calling and instant messaging to any second generation iPod touch with a compatible headset and microphone.


The application delivers core Skype capabilities including:



  • Free Skype-to-Skype calls from any Wi-Fi zone to other Skype users worldwide


  • Call landline or mobile phones at Skype's great low rates from any Wi-Fi zone


  • Send/receive instant messages to/from individuals or groups via 3G, Wi-Fi, GPRS or EDGE (whichever is available)


  • Receive calls to a personal online number on Skype


  • See when Skype contacts are online/available to IM or talk


Skype for iPhone requires a Wi-Fi connection to make free Skype-to-Skype calls or low-cost Skype calls to mobiles and landlines. Users will not be charged by Skype for making and receiving Skype-to-Skype calls using an iPhone or iPod touch. Skype's normal rates apply if using Skype to call landlines or mobiles. The app uses Wi-Fi, 3G, GPRS or EDGE (whichever is available) to sign into Skype, update a contact list, maintain and update presence and send/receive instant messages. Skype recommends an unlimited data usage plan for using Skype over a mobile data connection to avoid being charged by a wireless service provider for 3G, GPRS and EDGE mobile data usage.
