We have seen a video from Verizon named iDon’t and an ansfer from iPhone fans – the video named iDon’t Care. Here’s a new one, called iCan. It describes what a jailbreaked iPhone can do:

Here is the list of apps for that:

  • Can be customized: using Winterboard
  • I can run applications simultaneously: thanks to Backgrounder and Kirikae
  • I can always use the tethering: thanks to the tweaks available in Cydia
  • I call with Skype on 3G network: using VoiceOver3G or 3GUnrestrictor
  • Support an open development: with applications to be released via Cydia

Nice, isn’t it?

Skype, the iPhone and iPod Touch application through which you can call and chat with your Skype contacts, has been updated to version 1.2. There are many updates and new features.

What’s new in version 1.2:

  • Set up call forwarding from your iPhone – forward Skype calls to a phone number when you’re not signed in.
  • Improved performance and better audio quality on Skype-to-Skype calls.
  • Even easier to send text messages (SMS) – Send SMS from the Call tab.
  • Calls are connected much faster.
  • Status of your contacts is updated more often.
  • You can now decide whether you want to stay online/offline when the iPhone is  locked. We’ve added this into settings.
  • Contact groups are now supported, making it easier to see who is online and separate your saved phone numbers.
  • You can now edit the name of your saved phone numbers.
  • Added support for skype: URL schemes in Safari.
  • When creating a new account the country in your Skype profile is taken from the language used on your iPhone.
  • Group chat profile pictures are now shown.
  • You can now remove your profile picture.
  • Added a ‘Help’ link to ‘Forgot your password’.
  • Improved support for proxy configurations.

If you have done jailbreak, don’t worry. During first launch Skype will pop up a message showing that it works only on unmodified iPhones and iPods. But it is not true. It works just fine.

jailbreak skype Skype crashes on jailbraked iPhones

If you have jailbreaked iPhone your Skype app may crash. Here is what we know so far:

  • If Skype crashes when trying to input text: Disable both Clippy (Use SBSettings toggle) and any custom Winterboard sounds relating to the keyboard tick (tock.aiff).
  • If Skype crashes within 1 minute of having the app open: Update app called mobile substrate in Cydia. Uninstalling mobile substrate also fixes the problem, but you will lose features such as winterboard and sbsettings.

UPDATE: Many users report that Skype works fine with the latest version of Clippy (0.98-2) without the need to turn the latter off.
