Skype for Android Reviewed

by VoipPlanet.com Staff

The application lets you make free VoIP calls and text-chat with your Skype contacts, but it lacks video and works only on a Wi-Fi connection.

"Skype for Android lets you text-chat and make Skype voice calls using a Wi-Fi connection. It cannot use your cellular data connection, though, and it cannot do video chat. Since most Android phones don't have a front-facing camera (the Sprint HTC EVO 4G and the Samsung Epic are notable exceptions), the lack of video chat is not surprising. Still, it would be nice to see this feature available for phones that can take advantage of it," writes PCWorld's Brent Hopkins.

"Using the app is fairly straightforward. To begin, log in or create a Skype account if you don't already have one. Skype deserves credit for making it possible to create an account with the app. You can upload a profile photo and add details to your user profile right from the phone," Hopkins writes.
