One caveat though: 9 to 5 Mac says it uses 3.4 mb of data per minute.
So if you have a limited data plan, you don't want to go crazy with the Skype chat over 3G.
With more than 25 million people using Skype on a variety of different devices (not just those made by Apple), you can be sure you'll get more use out of it.
We tested the app this morning and it worked great.
As 3rd party encoders don't interact with website (only stream to RTMP), for channels to show as live on site, special functionality needs to be implemented: RTMP Session Control (included on our Wowza based plans and servers).
Video quality was just as good if not better than Apple's Facetime, even over 3G.
If Apple doesn't start opening Facetime to other devices or allow 3G calling, Skype has the potential to become the go-to video chat app.
If you don't already have Skype for i Phone, you can download it here.
