    Estoy intentando usar el programa Skypetoadressbook, pero no funciona o no lo estoy usando bien. Me explico: el programa arranca y me reconoce todos los contactos. Identifico los contactos skype con mi libreta de direcciones. Pero no pasa nada más! No me sale en la libreta de direcciones los contactos de skype y no encuentor ninguna opción para hacer que se conecte… Agradezco alguna indicación.

      Hola Nacho,

      Una vez tienes los contactos relacionados puedes llamar usando Skype desde la Agenda de Mac OS X. Si haces click secundario en el teléfono del contacto tendrás la opción “Call free to Skype user usuario_skype

      De todas maneras, me apunto añadir la opción de llamar desde la propia SkypeToAddressBook.

      Gracias por usar la herramienta y por el comentario!

    I work for Funky Words, a company that provides Russian software localization services.

    Since we will be celebrating our first anniversary shortly, we wanted to do something special. As part of our celebration, the authors of 20 applications from the AppStore that we have picked will be able to localize their product into Russian free of charge. It’s not a joke and there’s no catch here.

    We will translate your product SkypeToAddressBook into Russian for free. You won’t have to pay a cent for it. If you accept this proposal, please let us know by email and we’ll get the ball rolling!

    Best regards,
