SKYPE’S NEW 3G IPHONE APP IN HIGH DEMAND

MOBO Media

Demand for Skype’s new 3G iPhone app is extremely high with the company reporting 5 million downloads in just 4 days.

Prior to the release of the new app, iPhone users could only use Skype services to video and voice call other members when they had a Wi-Fi connection. But now, thanks to the latest application, Skype members can access all of the communication services while on the move.

Skype have confirmed the astonishing figure of 5 million downloads in 4 days, adding that a portion of this figure has come from upgrades, which explains why the app isn’t riding on the iTunes most popular free app list. A Skype spokesperson described the response to the new app as “really positive” and said they’d received a good mix of download requests from their key areas in Europe, North America and also Asia Pacific.

The overwhelming reaction to the new 3G app is extremely encouraging for Skype bosses as the network plans to start charging a small monthly fee from next year for the 3G service. The 5 million downloads in 4 days proves there is a huge demand for the service justifying Skype’s plans to start charging for the service.

Apple are due to announce a new iPhone later this month, and Skype are expected to introduce a facility to support the forthcoming release as well.
