    Skype (Finally) Adds Video to iPhone App

    Fire up the iPhone, scroll through your contacts and start drunk-video-dialing because Skype just caught up with a wanting marketplace.

    Despite a somewhat disturbing video blog about the new capabilities, the application is fairly  democratic in that you don't need to have the most recent iPhone or Touch to enjoy this new-found functionality.

    According to Skype you can: 

    • Make video calls to people on their computers as well as other iPhones (details below)
    • Make free audio calls to anyone else on Skype
    • Make great value calls to landlines and mobiles around the world

    You also can use an iPhone 3GS or fourth-generation iPod Touch -- but you can receive calls on an iPad or earlier Touch, too.

    They're feeding the Apple ecosystem and filling a void long-discussed by users.

    Good on ya, Skype.
