Skype has just launched a new version of the Skype application for the iPhone. The new application version is numbered v2.0, and enables free voice calls on the iPhone over the 3G network. The new Skype application now works over 3G network as well, unlike the previous version that only worked using Wi-Fi hot spots.
Skype has also made Skype-to-Skype phone calls over 3G free until the month of August. Skype-to-Skype calls made over Wi-Fi still remain free. The updated version of the application also features a better call quality indicator. The application start-up time has also been decreased. The call quality will be near CD like on the iPhone 3GS and on the 2nd generation iPod Touch.
Users can download the latest version of the Skype application from the Apple AppStore right away.
