SkypeKit now available for Windows and OSX

By: Don Lynn | More News: Software | Posted: Jul 15, 2010 5:53 am

SkypeKit, a developer program rolled out in June for Linux users to integrate Skype video, voice, and text chat capabilities into other programs, has now come to OSX and Windows. This program has widely broadened the ability of developers to integrate these functions into third party programs where before only a small set of APIs were available that were designed specifically for accessories like webcams and headsets.

 

TweakTown image news/1/6/16039_001.jpg

 

Skype is fired up about the program, calling SkypeKit "a headless version of Skype-that is, a Skype client with no user interface that runs invisibly, not only on PCs, but also TVs, notebooks, and other connected devices." SkypeKit is currently in beta and invitation only; drop by the Skype Developer Website to get a shot at getting your hands on it.

The image above was posted by a forumgoer at Gizmodo; it seems there are still some kinks to work out unless this is the signal bar fix we've all been hoping for. No word yet on whether the attempted software fix for reception has made its way into this beta; more on that as the sharp developer minds get to prodding this new release.
