Skype for iPhone gets Video Calling
Facetime on the iPhone / iPod Touch finally has a new friend – Video Calling through Skype. Today Skype has released version 3.0 of it’s iPhone app which brings the much expected video calling functionality to the iPhone 4 Apart from doing video calls between compatible devices ( iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4th Gen ) , you can also call desktop Skype users provided they have a webcam. The app works over both WiFi and 3G but we recommend the former. We just tested the app between 2 iPhone 4′s and it was certainly cool.
