Just a few days ago, I put up a post about changes to the iPhone OS, stating that VoIP is now good to go over 3G, making programs like Skype good money-saving options for long distance calls and the like. Of course, at the time, Skype had nothing to say about it. Now however, that’s changed.
Yesterday, Skype put up a post on their blog about the changes to the SDK. Here’s a highlight:
You may have seen other apps offering calls over 3G, but we’re holding ours back for a little bit longer. Why? So that we can give you the very best audio quality we can. When our 3G-capable Skype for iPhone app is released, it’ll let you make calls in wideband audio, giving you greater clarity and fidelity – because that’s what you expect from Skype.
Sounds like good news to me. I’ve only used Skype once, but apparently a bunch of my relatives have the program. And now that my wife is just days away from giving birth, I see us using Skype a lot more in the future.
