I frequently need to call overseas. I haven’t paid for these calls in years thanks to Skype. Skype has worked really well for me but hasn’t been updated in a while. At least not until recently.
Skype just launched version 2.8 of their OSX client software. In addition to bug fixes, this version adds improved audio and video quality, screen sharing and pay as you go Wi-Fi access.
You might wonder why you would use Skype when iChat has video conferencing built in. One word – interoperability. Skype runs on Windows and Macs plus a number of devices making it a great way to communicate cheaply with people around the world.
You can download it directly from the Skype website.
