Skype releases video chat app for iOS Expected to be revealed at CES next month, Skype has instead launched their iOS video chat app this week, giving iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad owners a chance to video-chat using the popular video-calling service.
Says Skype project manager Raul Liive:
"This season is very special as we are releasing a new version of Skype for iPhone and iPod Touch with video calling. Now you will be able to share all the special moments in video, as they happen, wherever you are."

iOS users can now make free Skype video calls from their devices, however anyone with an iPod Touch 3 or iPad can only receive calls (obviously, no cameras).

The service works via 3G and Wi-Fi and is completely compatible with the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 4 as long as they are running iOS 4.0 or higher.

Calls can be made between iOS devices, or from iOS-to-PC. For Windows, the owner must be running Skype 4.2 or higher and Mac users must be using Skype for Mac 2.8.

The software works for calls to Linux users, as well.

If you are using an iPhone and want to save minutes, you can make free audio calls to Sype members using the app.
