This week’s App Wednesday features a favorite of mine for great video calling and VoiP calling while on the go. I’m talking about Skype, a tool that millions of people have used for years on their computers. I have it installed on my iPhone and my iPad and it is indispensable for me. I often FaceTime, but Skype has the benefit for me that so many people already use it on their computers. With FaceTime, I can only video call people with an iOS device or if they have FaceTime on their Mac. With Skype, I can call PC users, Mac users, Android users and iOS users. Its market penetration is a real strength. Of course, market penetration alone wouldn’t make this a great app. It has to work. On my iPhone and especially on my iPad it works outstandingly. The recently launched iPad version has a great user interface, making it easy to use. Call quality is very good for both voice and video.
You can also grab the Android version here, thought I haven’t personally tested that version yet.
