Skype has just rolled out a new iOS app called Skype WiFi, that will allow users to access over 1 million WiFi hotspots worldwide. For those who travel abroad frequently, the new app will come in very handy and save users a great deal of money, as it allows travelers to avoid data roaming charges. Whenever someone needs to check email or make a quick Skype call, you can simply use the app on a per minute basis, rather than be charged hefty data fees.
COMMENT: The service is charged per minute using inexpensive Skype credits, so that one does not have buy an hour or a day’s worth of minutes. The app also does not limit how much data you use for uploading/downloading files. Instead, it simply charges by usage time, starting at $0.06 per minute. It is available to download for free from Apple's APP STORE and works on any iPhone, iPad or iTouch running iOS 4.1 or above. For those of you who are not Apple users...bummer!
