Allows to make calls over WiFi and 3G.

Skype has finally rolled over and released an application for Android smartphones. The app allows users to send and receive IMs, and make calls over WiFi, 3G, EDGE and GPRS.

However, WiFi calls only work for users in the United States, and the app is not available in the Android Market in China or Japan (and the UAE, of course, since the entire market is not officially supported).

The app will work on any handset with Android 2.1 or above; although it’s worth noting that the app seems to have issues with Samsung Galaxy S, which the company says is currently working on.

You can download the app from the Android Market or visit, from your phone.

Check out the official video demonstration of the app:
