The other day we were looking through our phone records and realised that just to own a business phone can cost over £400 a year, and that’s before we start to make international calls. Indeed, £400/year is regarded as small fry for BT and often doesn’t get your business on to their plans, which save you money when you start making international calls.

What’s the solution? One answer is Skype. This is VOIP technology that’s been around for a few years now and enables you to make very cheap international calls using your broadband. You don’t need ultra-fast broadband to make audio-only calls, either. Better still, some Skype calls can be better quality that some regular international calls, between certain countries.

Skype isn’t just limited to cheap audio calls. If you have faster broadband, you can use it to have a video conference between one or more people. Idea if you plan on bringing together multiple people from various territories, during a working day when phone costs are at their highest.

We use Skype to keep in contact with our international partners. We can use the technology to chat with these partners, through typing messages like you would if you were using MSN Messenger. Anyone with a Skype account can be brought in to a conference where everyone can contribute and swap files.

Skype for Android now enables you to send photos and videos to friends or family from Skype on your Android device. It's now even easier to share those special moments with your loved ones or send files and view documents on the go while on a business trip. And it's free and works over WiFi or 3G on a mobile data plan.

What's new?

- New themes - choose between light and dark themes.
- Activity indicators - see who's currently active in your Chats list.
- Reorder your chats - sort your chats by recent, unread or active.
- General performance and reliability improvements.

Verdict:

Business application that enables you to keep in contact with international partners, make cheap calls and much more. Excellent tool, let down but the inconsistency in development between different operating systems.
