Skype has taken over the computer messaging game, where AIM used to be king. We video chat, phone calling, type chat, Skype does it all to keep distances apart only relative to the computer screen. Now Skype is releasing an application for the iPhone as soon as tomorrow!

The iPhone client feature set is more or less what we’ve come to expect from Skype mobile apps: free Skype-to-Skype calls, SkypeOut support, pretty interface integration (they went with the iPhone aesthetic over the Skype desktop aesthetic, thankfully) and instant messaging to other users. You can even snap a profile picture from within the app. The app will also support 2G iPod Touches with external mics.
