After the news last week that Apple and AT&T are now allowing VoIP apps to make phone calls over the 3G network, Skype said it’s still waiting to release a new 3G-ready version of its software for the iPhone.

Today the company offered a few updates on the progress of the app, which it is apparently putting the finishes touches on and which Skype says will be available ‘really soon.’


In a YouTube video, David Ponsford, the leader of Skype’s iPhone team, said the app would have ‘CD-quality sound’ for calls between Skype users.

He also mentioned that the app would have a red-yellow-green-coded indicator that will show users what kind of signal quality they’re getting on a call in real time.

‘We want to give you as much feedback as possible about what’s actually going on with your call,’ Ponsford said.
