Skype just launched a new iOS application that lets users locate Wi-Fi hotspots where they can pay for access using Skype Credit. It currently supports over 1 million hotspots worldwide, including those found in hotels, airports, train stations, convention centers, bars and restaurants. The advantage of using this app over buying a voucher directly with the hotspot service provider is that you would only pay for the actual minutes you use, explains Skype.
The new app works on all iOS devices, which means iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. Previously, this same service was available for laptops running the Skype software.
To use the app, simply sign in with your same Skype username and password then tap “go online” to get connected.
