OK, this has to be the coolest news this morning. SHAPE Services, a Stuttgart, Germany-based company, well-known for making mobile IM clients, has just announced Skype for iPhone, an iPhone-optimized Web site that allows you to access Skype via the browser on the iPhone. You can try out this for free for a limited time.

It took me less than two minutes to get up and running. Sending messages was as simple as typing SMS messages.

I am guessing that, since they ask you for your mobile number when you log in, there is some kind of call-back service

built into the app. After all, the company says you don’t need WiFi.

IM+ for Skype works with BlackBerry RIM, Windows Mobile Pocket PC, Palm OS, Symbian and J2ME devices.

The application works in any network and doesn’t require WiFi, the company says.

People are going about this in entirely the wrong way. The iPhone has been hacked and can now run 3rd party binaries, people need to start pushing apple to create a real sdk rather than their bullshit javascript one.

Will someone please explain to me why people go balls-crazy over Skype? I've given it a fair shot, and in my opinion, it totally blows.

'Nuff said.

I personally like skype, and have it running on my cingular 8125. I personally like the free calling between computers with skype. With my laptop i use a webcam for the video calling. it seems to be a popular client too, which means that people I know use it. any iphone users try this out?
