Skype for iPhone Users
Shape Services said Monday that it had made a version of its IM+ for Skype client that works with the Apple iPhone. The application is already available for several other platforms, including BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, Palm OS, Symbian, and J2ME devices. Shape said the Web application had been developed specially for the touchscreen interface of the iPhone.
IM+ allows users to place calls using SkypeOut credits or Skype plans to any Skype PC or phone number. "Noticing the public interest for Skype on iPhone, we decided to use our mobile IM and mobile Skype experience and develop an application for [the device's users]," Shape Services CEO Igor Berezovsky said in a statement. iPhone users can access the service by visiting skypeforiphone.com.
