Skype now has its own downloadable app

Today sees the launch of a new Skype solution for those with the latest phones from Apple.

Downloadable from the manufacturer's online App Store, the Skype for iPhone application will offer a low cost way for people to message and call one another from their wirelessly-enabled devices.

In addition to free Skype-to-Skype calls from any Wi-Fi zone in the world, users can take advantage of low rates for ringing landlines or other mobile phones - as well as access to the service's instant messaging facility.

Scott Durchslag, Skype's chief operating officer, said the offering had been much-requested for some time and the company was now glad to be able to furnish iPhone users with access to the application.

"Skype for iPhone is an experience that offers the same simplicity, ease-of-use and quality our users have come to expect from Skype, combined with an elegance of design and richness so loved by Apple's many customers," he added.

Apple recently launched the 3.0 upgrade of its iPhone operating system.
