Skype has just rolled out a new iOS app called Skype WiFi that will allow users to access over 1 million WiFi hotspots around the world. If you travel abroad frequently, this app will come in handy as it allows you to avoid data roaming charges. Whenever you need to check email or make a quick Skype call, you can simply use the app on a per minute basis than be charged hefty data fees.
With Skype WiFi, you can access the internet at over 1 million WiFi hotspots worldwide, including at airports, hotels, convention centers, train stations, bars, and restaurants. The service is charged per minute using Skype Credits so that you don’t need to buy an hour or a day’s worth of usage.
The app also does not limit how much data you use for uploading or downloading files. Instead, it simply charges by usage time, starting at $0.06 per minute. It is available to download for free from Apple’s App Store and works on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running iOS 4.1 or above.
