For those not courageous enough to give the SoonR Talk workaround a go, fret not, as Skype has finally arrived (for realz) on the iPhone. SHAPE Services has introduced IM+ for Skype for iPhone, which is simply a Safari web application that enables one to “access the Skype ecosystem from the mobile environment.” Reportedly, the app was “designed especially for the iPhone’s touchscreen,” and best of all, it’s being offered up gratis “for a limited time.” So go on, point your iPhone to SkypeforiPhone.com and get to yappin’, ya heard?
Yappd is a new micro-blogging tool with an emphasis on the visual. The service works in a very similar manner to Twitter, but you can include an image in your updates, which top off at 150 characters. There’s both SMS and email integration with which to do this. You can text in a picture message with a caption from your phone, or send in an email with an image attached. The image will display as a thumbnail directly in your Yappd update on your home page, which can be opened in a full size view, with your update showing below the image.
