Not in Canada: Skype App for iPhone

skype-canada-noshowFor those who do not know Skype, it’s a service owned by eBay and allows you to send and receive calls and message other Skype users for free using a Wi-Fi connection.

Tomorrow they’ll be releasing an new and free iPhone App (via the Apple AppStore) and when it officially launches, us Canadians will not share the joy and be able to use  this as we are the only country left out of the party!

According to Chaim Haas, a public relations rep for Skype, reason is because of a patent issue related to Skype, not an Apple related issue.

(However, one way around this is to create a US iTunes App Store account.)
