Skype for iPhone Reaches One Million Downloads in Just Two Days

According to a brief blog post on its website, Skype's official UK blogger reveals that the new Skype iPhone application saw more than one million downloads in its first two days in the App Store.

This is a phenomenal performance, and we're confident that it's one of the fastest-downloaded iPhone apps ever. We'll be back next week with an update, but for now, Skype on.

While a number of other applications have offered Skype support for some time, the launch of the official Skype iPhone application earlier this week provides users with an official standalone application for accessing the service.
