Skype launches Wi-Fi, 3G video calling to iPhone app
San Francisco: Skype is offering a new video calling application which will run on iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. The video calling works over both Wi-Fi and 3G.

With this new Skype 3.0 will enable free video calling to the Apple devices and the users will be able to use both Wi-Fi and AT&T's 3G cellular network. With this, users can activate any video chats from their contacts by turning on the video feature.

The app is compatible with iPhone 4, iPhone 3Gs, and the 4G iPod Touch with iOS 4.0 and above. It also offers free services such as voice or video calls to other Skype users. Users need to pay to make calls from a PC to a landline or cell phone.

As earlier, Skype remains to offer instant messaging, text messaging, audio-only chats, and the ability to call landlines and mobile phones at low rates.

It should be noted that Skype for iPhone is free and video calling needs iOS 4.0 or above. The application can be run on any device with at least iOS 3.0.
