Free Skype for Apple's iPhone will finally be available to download from the iTunes App Store sometime on Tuesday, CNN reported.
Skype wants to maintain some consistency across its mobile applications, and there are a few capabilities that are notably missing, and a few iPhone-only perks that are refreshing to see.
In terms of navigation, Skype's VoIP app for iPhone looks more like your traditional iPhone application. Skype's screens are well organized and use the iPhone's ability to add filters, for instance.
Calls on Skype for iPhone work only if you're in range of a Wi-Fi network, so your call quality will depend mainly on the strength of wireless networks nearby. Calls will not work over the cell phone network on the iPhone although chatting will.
iPod Touch users will need earphones with an embedded microphone to talk.
Another neat feature is the ability to accept incoming conference calls. While there is no way to initiate a call one will be able to join a conference call if invited to do so.
