Compared to the US and Japan, where the earliest reports came from, UK iPhone customers haven’t quite taken on board so much of the Skype hype.
iSkype goes on sale in the iTunes store today, to UK customers but early reports were mixed with complaints of bugs and crashes. At the same time Apple’s partnership with O2 has done a lot to squash a the excitement that free iPhone calls, managed to generate in other markets.
But there is hope. The latest is that things are go smoothly for anyone running Skype on the latest non-beta firmware, with calls working over Wi-Fi rather than 3G. When using the app like this the audio quality is far better than you would find on any other third party apps.
If you’ve got Skype on your iPhone drop us a line and let us know “how it was for you”.
