Skype Communications Sarl has already given us Skype for iPad on Nov 24, now delivering another great Utilities application and iphone app on the store. The review includes the developer's description, customer ratings, user reviews and screenshots for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

if you like this mobile application, please share It with others (click on the social media icon links).

With Skype WiFi you can get online at over 2 million public WiFi hotspots worldwide at the touch of a button.

Here’s how:

1. Simply connect to any supported public WiFi hotspot.
2. Open this application app and tap the Connect button…
3. Ta-da! You’re now connected to the internet (wasn’t that easy?).

You’re now free to browse the web, check your email or enjoy free calls and messages to all your friends and family with the Skype app – remember, it’s a different app to this application one. ;)

• Pay only for the minutes you use and avoid those expensive all-day internet passes.
• No matter what hotspot you’re connected to, pay using your Skype Credit so you never have to fill out another complicated sign up form.
• And so there’s no unexpected surprises, Skype WiFi will automatically disconnect after 30 minutes in case you forget to disconnect.

System requirements:

• iOS 7 or higher
• WiFi connection to compatible network
• Skype Account or Microsoft account
• Skype Credit in your account

Skype WiFi is provided by 3rd party WiFi operators around the world.

(2★) Not worth the trouble
Too complicated, too many questions, the whole focus seems to be how they are going to get your money. They gave up a good pre MS
service for an overly complex cumbersome irritant that is not worth t

(2★) 7 for 5minutes of Internet
I think the title says it all. The per minute charge was 0.19 but it looks like the charge happens in 30min increments. So I
basically spent 7 to do a quick email check.

(2★) Not Skype, just Internet access
Had hoped that this was a wifi only version, that worked better than the reviews of the main version. Nope just a program that
tries to connect you to a partner network :(
