Skype adding Wi-Fi, 3G video calling to iPhone app

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A new version of the free iPhone app for Skype SA will let users make and receive video calls.

Users of the Internet calling and messaging service will be able to use both Wi-Fi and AT&T's 3G cellular network. FaceTime software, which comes with iPhones, works only with Wi-Fi.

The app, which is being released Thursday through Apple's iTunes Store, will let iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS users make free video calls to other Skype users who are using the app, or have access to the feature using Skype on their computer or other video phone.

Those with the latest iPod Touch will be able to make video calls over Wi-Fi. Skype says the app allows the iPad and previous-generation iPod Touch to receive video calls, too.
