Skype has just released a new service, and with it an iOS app to go with it. Skype WiFi allows you to connect with 1 million different Wi-Fi hotspots around the world, and if paying is a problem, you’re allowed to use your Skype credit.
Going through the features in detail:
Use Skype WiFi to connect to WiFi hotspots at hotels, airports, train stations, bars and restaurants available at over 1 million hotspots worldwide.
Just one tap to connect then browse the internet, check email, use Skype, check Facebook, update Twitter, upload photos, download music or ebooks.
Only pay for the time you’re connected – there are no limits on the amount of data you can upload or download.
With Skype WiFi , you can go online and pay by the minute. Before you connect, you’ll clearly see the cost of the hotspot you’re connecting to.
Remember, you’ll only ever be charged for the minutes you’re connected, not the amount you download or upload.
You’re in control each session lasts for a maximum of 30 minutes and you’ll be asked to reconnect if you wish to continue your session. You can tap Disconnect at any time.
