Sipgate VoIP for iPhone

Sipgate on Wednesday unveiled a new free application which allows iPhone users to interact natively with any VoIP service that uses industry standard SIP. Users can place or receive VoIP calls over WiFi, with the service offering rates as low as 1 per minute. The service also allows users to maintain both domestic and international numbers in one place, so they do not have to keep track of separate services. Sipgate is offering the iPhone VoIP application directly on its website.

"We love VoIP and we love the iPhone so we are giving people like us who always wanted VoIP on the iPhone the ability to use any SIP-based VoIP service they want," said Thilo Salmon, CEO for Sipgate. "We are thrilled that Apple is opening up the iPhone and we look forward to taking part in future application development."

    How does it compare...

    ...to Skype? In my experience quality of SIP was sub-par, but perhaps it is dependent on location / operator. So, in comparison to Skype is it better or worse in general (no matter the cost)?
