The first third-party mobile client application to be certified by Skype.This confirms that iSkoot meets Skype’s standards for usability and quality, making it the first third-party mobile client application to be certified by Skype. iSkoot allows mobile phone users to place and receive Skype calls from their handsets, without the need for PCs, special hardware, or WiFi hot spots.
Users simply use local rates or minutes from their plans to speak to Skype contacts or use SkypeOut to make inexpensive calls to any phone from their mobiles. This will initially be made available in the US with more markets to follow. Skype’s certification of iSkoot is part of the ongoing business relationship between the two companies. Skype and iSkoot also market the application to handset manufacturers and mobile operators, who could offer their customers service packages that include iSkoot.
