The Skype application allows you to video-chat with people over the Internet, and you can also store a list of contacts that connect with the program. If you want to sync the contacts from your Skype program with your iPhone, you must enable the Contacts Manager add-in feature in Skype. With the Contacts Manager feature, you can export your selected contacts list to appear as a Comma Separated Values (CSV) file on your computer.
