    As you know, Skype is now available in all countries the iPhone is in except Canada. There is however, an easy work around.

    1) Download the Skype app here: http://www.appscene.org/download.php?id=261447924
    (I know this is TECHNICALLY a cracked app, but it is free in the App Store)

    2) Using CyberDuck or the like, sftp into your iPod.

    3) Upload it to /Applications

    4)ReSpring

    I hope this has been helpful and I will remove the link if needed.

    Why dont use the official uncracked [so you can update it] version? :

    0) Log off from your Account on canadian Itunes-Store
    1) Change on your Computer on Itunes the Itunes-Store to e.g. United States
    2) Search for Skype and download it (create by that a free account for THIS iTunes-Store)
    3) Install Skype on your device

    4)Change your Store back to the default (Canada) and log in with your normal account

    Yup, much better solution. Legit, the app is free, and there's a way to get it directly from the app store. I like this U.S. store workaround. Going to use it for any other free app that's not available in Canada.

    And why the hell isn't the app available in Canada? I use Skype desktop version in Canada -- what's the difference? My desktop computer is different than my iPhone computer? So bloody stupid.

    Not working

    I tried the setting up a US account method.

    I have dl the program into Itunes but when I try to sync the app into my Ipod touch I get an error message saying that my computer is not authorized.

    WTF
