With iSkoot for Skype, you can make & receive Skype calls, chat, and use SkypeOut to call regular numbers anywhere in the world. And with our newly enhanced feature set, now you can easily place SkypeOut calls to anyone in your general address book, and enjoy cool new Skype chat features like emoticons and multi-party chat. What's really cool, unlike other mobile Skype apps, iSkoot is a thin client - so it won't take up loads of memory or eat up your battery power.
What's new in this version:
This version is the first release on CNET Download.com
Version: iSkoot for Skype (Windows Mobile Smartphones) 1.1.54
- Nice User Interface - Easy to read even on a 2.5" QVGA display
- Integrates with WM 5.0 - able to access the phone dialer application
- DOES NOT SUPPORT SKYPE - SKYPE VOICE CALLS! It tries to dial the skype contact via my mobile operator / skypeout!
- Takes a long time (>30 seconds) to connect to the skype service (HP iPaq 6965; WiFi - b connection; 8Mbps cable ISP connection). My laptop and desktop take under 5 seconds to connect on the same connection.
- There's no way to enforce "WiFi only" connections - The software randomly tries to establish a GPRS connection (could prove to be very expensive!)
