Skype Editor's Review

Skype is a complex communication tool which serves its purpose better than ever. Just double click your contact in the list and talk to them. Personalization is available via avatars and ringtones. Simple and compact, Skype delivers a very good quality of service. 

In case you want to extend your horizons, you can sign in to SkypeIn an SkypeOut and buy a phone number which grants incoming regular telephony calls and you can also buy credit for land line calls via Skype. 

Skype isn’t just about free Skype-to-Skype calls and low-cost calls to phones and mobiles at home and abroad. You can also do much, much more. 

For starters why not send a text message directly from Skype; forward a call to your mobile; or set up an online number for friends, family and colleagues to make a local call from their old-fashioned phone to your Skype, wherever in the world you are. 

All you need to get going with these snazzy products is a little pay as you go Skype Credit. Alternatively you can get unlimited calls to landlines and a great bundle of useful features with a subscription – it’s one neat little package for a low monthly fee. 

Pluses: Easy installation, free, good integration. 

Drawbacks / flaws: 

In conclusion: An excellent implementation of VoIP and video services in a worldwide used product.
