Skype is one of the most popular VoIP applications these days mainly because it is much easier to setup and use. Furthermore, it supports many extra features such video conferencing, file transfer, screen sharing and client for many popular mobile devices. However, one of the limitations of the Skype is that you cannot login in to multiple accounts simultaneously in case you have more than one account. There might be many reasons for that – for example an account for the work related contacts in the office, and another one for the family contacts, and yet another one for the friends. But normally you can only login to one of these accounts at a time.
Calimero Skype Launcher is nice free application that allows the login to multiple accounts simultaneously in Skype possible! It works only with the Skype 4.0 and higher. It is also compatible with portable versions of the Skype. Basically the number of accounts you can login in to in Skype is unlimited!
