Skype has announced the immediate availability of its Skype WiFi app for the iPhone/iPod touch. The free app makes it easy to find and then connect to over 1 million Wi-Fi hotspots around the world, including hotels, airports, and bars and restaurants. Formerly called Skype Access, Skype WiFi finds available hotspots and then lets you purchase minutes using Skype credit. Best of all, you’re only charged for the minutes you use. WiFi access prices through Skype start from US$ 0.06/4p/€0,05 (inclusive of VAT) per minute. There are no limits on the amount of data you can upload or download. To celebrate the new Skype WiFi app and to give you a chance to try it out, Skype WiFi will be free around the globe from Saturday 20th August 00:00 till Sunday 21st August 23:59 BST for a maximum of 60 minutes. To enjoy free wireless access, download Skype WiFi on your iPhone/iPod touch or iPad or make sure you have the latest Skype software on your computer. Find yourself a hotspot and connect!
