Skype - free IM & video calls

Skype is an all-in-one communication app for internet telephony. It’s a feature-packed app that allows users to make voice and video calls, send text and voice messages, share images and documents, and conduct video conference calls. The Skype app started in August of 2003 when the team headed by the Swedish nationals Niklas Zennstrom and Dane Janus Friis released the first desktop version of the program. The user base of the application rose exponentially in the first two years of its release. And by September of 2005, the e-commerce giant eBay decided to purchase Skype at $2.6 billion making it one of the most successful apps ever developed. In September 2009, a Canadian investment corporation agreed to acquire 65% of Skype from eBay. This placed Skype’s enterprise market value to $2.92 billion. Microsoft then took Skype from eBay in a deal worth $8.5 billion made on May of 2011. Since then, Skype has been a flagship product of the Microsoft Corporation. The Skype mobile app is free to download although in-app purchases are available to get Skype credits. The credits could be used to avail premium features like Skype to landline calls, having local landline number attached to Skype, and unlimited call services for some countries. Skype to Skype messaging and calls are free for all users. The video conferencing feature, which is one of the reasons for Skype’s popularity, is also free for everyone. As of 2015, Skype has an average of more than 300 million active users per month. The app has also reached the 1 billion landmark in downloads.

Pokemon Go
Augmented Reality

Pokemon Go is a free-to-play, location-based augmented reality (AR) game. It grew to massive success at its July 2016 launch, reaching the #1 spot in app stores for both Android and iOS. The game did run in to issues early in its release due to the popularity of the app as it rolled out to more countries. The game's characters are based on the popular children TV series Pokemon. Other Pokemon games are available on Nintendo devices, like the Nintendo 3DS. The aim of Pokemon Go puts the focus on your current location. By moving around in real-time, you are able to find nearby wild Pokemon that you can then capture. Special icons on the map show areas of interest for Pokemon Go players: PokeStops and gyms. PokeStops allow you to gain items, such as potions, berries and PokeBalls. You can also get eggs that when incubated can hatch in to a Pokemon. Eggs need you to walk a certain distance to hatch, ranging from 1–10 kilometers (0.62–6.2 miles). Pokemon Gyms are not like gyms from more traditional Pokemon games. Instead, you represent one of three teams - Valor, Mystic, and Instinct - which can then own the gym. While you have a Pokemon in your team's gym, it can earn rewards to make your Pokemon stronger. Defeating an opposing team gym's leader allows you to take over that gym for your team. More features and new Pokemon are added in regular updates. Pokemon trading, player vs. player battles, and Pokemon Centers are currently in development. Niantic has not provided any specific dates on when these will be released.
