    Hi, all!

    I just need to know, is there any ways to integrate Skype into the app right now. I need only a chat functionality. No video or audio calls, no file transfer, only chat.

    Official site has some "integration" tutorial:
    Code:
    - (IBAction)skypeMe:(id)sender {
      BOOL installed = [[UIApplication sharedApplication] canOpenURL:[NSURL URLWithString:@"skype:"]];
      if(installed) {
        [[UIApplication sharedApplication] openURL:[NSURL URLWithString:@"skype:echo123?call"]];
      } else{
        [[UIApplication sharedApplication] openURL:[NSURL URLWithString:@"http://itunes.com/apps/skype/skype"]];
      }
    }
    ,but it's about nothing, it's not an integration

    Regards

    Niko

    So you could use a bog standard role your own jabber client or do you need access to skypes user base?

    You would have to check if Skype provides a SDK for iOS, otherwise I don't think it would be possible

    It's a form of integration (fairly minor, IMO) whereby you can start another app from within yours through the use of Custom URL Schemes. But URIs seems to be the extent of what you can use with Skype.

    It's too bad

    That's the point, I need an access to skype contacts and messages. I thought maybe someone done something similar. There is another unofficial scheme with using of Jabber transport protocol karaka. But job was stopped on this project.
