Skype is a software application that allows people to make free voice and video calls over the Internet.
It also allows to make (paid) phone calls from the Internet onto a regular landline or mobile phone. I have been using Skype for quite some time. On the Mac or PC, also available on the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
Skype comes very handy when you travel and you want to call your folks back home. It’s also very popular among families that have relatives in other states, provinces or countries. If your kids left for college in a different state or province, or your grandkids are living abroad in another country
