Integrate Skype users into Address Book
Authored by: petergort on Dec 30, '04 02:13:32PM

Since I don't intend to use Skype's PSTN gateway (I live in the wonderful land of Oz, so anybody I call would automatically be an overseas call) I didn't want to use the phone field for Skype addresses. In Address Book, you can choose "Other" for the property name and enter what you like, so I entered "Skype" as a property for my contact in address book. Then in the script I changed the property value from "phone" to "skype", and wll do so for any Skype contacts I aquire. Now when I want to choose an action, Skype contacts in the addressbook have the "Call with Skype" option, but phone ones don't.
