Skype for Android screen shot


Potentially decent VOIP tool for your Android that will enable you to get on a conference call, but flawed

Review Rating: rating

Type: Free for personal use only

Platform: Android

Manufacturer: Skype

Size: 7.4MB

Price: Free

Skype’s free instant messaging and phone call making application lets users make free calls to other compatible handsets for free using either a data plan or wireless connection.

Low priced calls to landlines and mobile phones are also offered, with Skype credits, while text chat lets users communicate in groups.

Skype’s mobile phone client successfully mirrors the experience of the desktop version, however with users complaining about problems running the software on some handsets, downloaders would be wise to check the comments, and specifications before downloading.

The latest v2 now supports video caling over Wi-Fi and 3G connections.
