Skype’s New App Now Allows Video Calls To The iPhone, iPad And iPod Touch

The Skype iPhone app now finally offers video calling—over Wi-Fi and 3G. You can now make calls to and from various iOS devices as well as desktops.

The beauty of the app is that it brings free video calling to iPhone 3G devices, iPad and iPod Touch, all of which couldn’t run Apple’s video calling feature Facetime (the feature only works with iPhone 4 devices and Mac computers). Of course, iPad owners won’t be able to initiate a video call, but these users can receive any video chats from contacts.

Skype’s iPhone app, which was one of the top five free iPhone apps in 2010, allows users to simply turn on the video feature to activate video chat. iPhone 4 users have the ability to use either the front facing camera or the back camera.
