After their recent trials and tribulations Skype has taken a huge leap forward with the introduction of their new app for iOS. The app allows iPhone and iPod touch users to make free Skype to Skype video calls using both Wi-Fi and 3G connections – note that the 3G connection has to be a strong one.
The brand new Skype app has made inroads on Apple’s own Facetime, a service that is now embedded into both the iPhone and fourth generation iPod touch. Skype’s app allows users to call any other Skype user, be it on a PC, Laptop or any other Skype enabled device – A clear advantage over Facetime which struggled to gain users approval due to the lack of deals being made between Apple and Networks to support Facetime.
The launch of the new app will be a welcome addition for both Skype and its users after the recent outages.
Do you think it will be enough to regain users trust? Will you be using Skype’s new app?
