Skype have just launched their official iPhone client in the UK! Woop!
My first reaction was definitely one of â€˜wowâ€™ â€“ the interface is slick, and a quick phone call to their â€˜test serviceâ€™ (didnâ€™t want to wake anyone!) revealed the call quality to be excellent, although it seemed that a little part of my test message was dropped.
Only problem I can see with it is the lack of cell network support, Iâ€™d really like to be able to make calls on the go without having Wi-Fi nearby. Other â€˜nice to haveâ€™ would be the use of background processing on the iPhone, but that is Applesâ€™ fault obviously. Maybe push notifications could be used somehow in this app? We shall wait and seeâ€¦
