Skype now officially available on iPhone Last week we reported that Skype was set to launch an official iPhone app and beginning tomorrow, the much anticipated application will be available in the Apple App Store.
Users will be able to make free calls to other Skype users using the phone's built-in Wi-Fi. The company also announced that a Blackberry version is coming in May, and the two moves follow Skype's addition of its service to Nokia, Windows Mobile and Android phones in the last year.

PCWorld was given a sneak peak of the program and says it does all it needs to do, and the interface is great. One glaring problem is the fact that you can not use cellular networks to make Skype calls, and are restricted to the Wi-Fi. The app will make international phone callers very happy however, as it will eliminate high fees associated with using AT&T's cellular network to make international calls.

Now someone just needs to make an app that is Corperate VOIP friendly. My organization has a VOIP system by Cisco (CallManager) and so far all the SIP Voip Apps do not play well or at all. I would love to replace my internal WiFi phone and use my iPhone while on my works internal WiFi with my extension on it. You know they can do it and I have seen a couple Nokia Models with that ability so c'mon developers
