Skype comes to iPhone
Shape Services on Monday introduced Skype for iPhone. IM+ is the company's Web application designed for the Safari Web browser that accesses the Skype ecosystem from a mobile environment, allowing users to make phone calls using Skype. Designed specifically for the iPhone's touch-screen, IM+ for Skype iPhone is available for free to all iPhone users for a limited time. Users can talk to Skype contacts or call any landlines as well as mobiles. IM+ for Skype uses SkypeOut credits for voice communication to ensure cost-effective calling to any number around the world, and provides nearly free calling from an iPhone to any PC with Skype or any land-line/mobile number for SKype Unlimited and Skype Pro plan users.
