Sony PS Vita gets a Skype app


As if the Sony PS Vita wasn’t cool enough, it just recently gained another feature when an official Skype app was added to its arsenal. The app works the same way as the smartphone version, allowing free Skype-to-Skype voice calls and video calls, but its user interface seems to be slightly modified to better fit that of PS Vita. I guess it’s a good thing that Sony decided to put the front-facing camera on the PS Vita in the first place, and users can even use the rear camera (although we can’t seem to imagine how that would be suitable for face-to-face video calls). Users can pause a game, take a call, and then return right back to the game without any problems, and the app runs in background mode so incoming calls won’t interrupt your activities. All in all, this is a nifty +1 for the Sony PS Vita.
