Skype on my iPhone – working like a charm

Skype chat on iPhone

Skype chat

I just downloaded Skype from the Apple AppStore. 20 seconds to download; 10 seconds to login and start using. One word can describe it all – wow!

While it only works on WiFi, it is still a quantum leap forward for voice/chat communications. I can envision several use scenarios already, even with this limitation. That said, I’m told that jailbroken iPhones are able to place Skype calls over 3G as well. What a deal… and in the words made famous by the very Pink Floyd – “all in all, it’s another brick in the wall” – for the emerging telecom free for all.

I’m not going to blog about this in any great detail since reviews are already popping up all over the web and a lot of people have a lot to say. The one place where chatter is already maturing is at GigaOM. Tune in.
