Skype iPhone App Now Available in Apple App Store on iTunes – Here is Video of Skype iPhone

The long anticipated Skype for iPhone and iPod touch has hit the App Store, and it’s yours to download for free – here is the link to Apple iTunes App Store. This officially puts the nail in the coffin for the other Skype iPhone clone apps.  Also 9 to 5 is reporting that you install Skype on a 3.0 iPhone, you can use AT&T’s connection to make and receive calls.  Skype treats the 3G line like any other internet connection. Thanks 9to5mac.com guys!

Kurt Thywissen, lead engineer on the Skype for iPhone project, explains all in the video below, but I suspect that many of you will want to dive straight in and download it now.

Skype for iPhone delivers a true Skype experience: make free Skype-to-Skype calls and low cost calls to landlines and mobile phones – and participate in conference calls – from any WiFi zone. You can IM to your heart’s content, and participate in group chats too, whenever you have network connectivity, whether it’s WiFi, 3G, EDGE or GPRS.

The user interface is everything you’d expect from an iPhone app, and it integrates with your Address Book for super low cost calls to friends, family and colleagues abroad. It also integrates with the Camera Roll and your photo albums so you can select a profile picture you love.

Here is the video of the Skype iPhone app making calles over AT&T  3G
