Skype finally brings video chat to its iOS app. The just released version 3 of Skype brings free video calling to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, making it the direct competitor to Apple’s FaceTime. FaceTime requires both calling parties using iPhone 4, Skype video call can works even with iPhone 3GS.
Skype video calling is supported over WiFi and 3G* data connections. You can enjoy video calls with users on all Skype desktop versions and with other Skype for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad users.
You can make video calls in both portrait and landscape mode and use both front and back cameras.
Users on iPhone 4, 3GS and iPod Touch (4th Generation) can enjoy full 2-way video calling. Users with iPod Touch (3rd Generation) and iPads can receive video.
Video calling with Skype requires iOS 4.0 or above to be installed on your device. Skype 3.0 for iPhone will also work on iOs 3.x, but without video support.
