Developers can add Skype-like chatter to iPhone and iPad with new SDK.
The cloud communications firm's new 'Twilio Client for iOS' is a basic SDK, which will makes it straightforward for app creators to integrate VoIP functionality into their iPad, iPhone and iPod touch apps.
This will enable any part of an app to become a 'VoIP phone', making calls via any iOS device over an internet connection, whether the client is added to new or existing apps.
Jeff Lawson, CEO and co-founder, Twilio, said: "Twilio’s mission is to open the black box of telecom and make its power accessible to developers everywhere.
"With Twilio Client for iOS, we're enabling mobile developers to incorporate VoIP directly into their apps to create rich communication experiences. We can’t wait to see what they build."
Twilio is also working on an Android version of the client, which is in the beta stage of testing.
