Few weeks back, Skype finally launched Skype application on Iphone. When the long awaited software was released, it was a huge joy for Iphone and Ipod touch users. Hour by hour, it was patiently anticipated by users across the globe, from Japan to New York.
As an Iphone user, I use Fring and wifi combo to connect to Skype network. It connects pretty good to skype, however, it's difficult to get connected on the first try. On top of that, it also produces few second delay on the call.

The question has lingered in my head for several months until yesterday when I stumbled upon another great Apple application.
