About Skype for iPhone

Editors Review
Skype for mobile is just about the same as Skype for desktop. That by itself is high praise - high-quality voice calls, convenient messaging, and low-cost phone calls with Skype Credit have all been competently compressed into a mobile app with a great interface. The new Moji feature is great too; stickers are cute but somewhat passe by now, and Mojis comprise a large library of video clips from popular media that really get the message across in a fun and unique way. Perhaps one of the most important aspects of Skype is the competent file sharing features, where almost any kind of file can be sent over Skype.
Skype is a free communication app that lets users make free voice and video calls, as well as send text messages, right from their iOS devices.

works similarly to the desktop version of Skype, allowing users to make HD-quality voice and video calls, receive and send messages, and show text statuses that contacts can see while they're online. Contacts can be synced from user address books, and users can even call and text cellular and landline phones anywhere at low rates with Skype Credit.

Skype enhances messaging by offering various features like file sharing, which lets users share photos and videos from their gallery, or even take a photo on the spot and instantly share it. Unlike many mobile messaging apps,

It also allows for a wide variety of file formats to be attached to messages, also allows users to share their location with contacts, removing the need to give directions or instructions when meeting up.

If a user is offline when they are sent a message, Skype will store the message for later delivery, which they'll get as soon as they log back on.
