Skype app review

At long last, the undisputed king of Voice over IP (VoIP) has arrived on Android. We’re not sure why it’s taken so long, and handset compatibility still isn’t stellar (it works on our Milestone but not our Galaxy S) but it’s here and it’s as polished a communication tool as ever.

The main attraction here is free Skype-to-Skype calls, which work an absolute treat. Messaging is slickly handled on the wee screen, too, but there are several alternative avenues for those with itchy fingers – not least Google Talk, for example.

The only issue is a fairly glaring omission – where on earth is our video calling?
