Skype has launched a new application directory for apps built on the Skype API. There are apps for business, call recording, desktop and whiteboard sharing, faxing, integrations with popular software and mobile video communications.

There are currently five apps in the business category. These include: Outbound Dialer for Virtual Call Center, PrettyMay Call Center for Skype, Virtual Call Center, VuRoom and Zaplee.

For Call Recording, there are 4 apps for audio and video, and 6 apps for audio only. There are 3 apps in the desktop/whiteboard sharing category, 2 in Faxing, and 2 in mobile video communications (including Qik, which Skype recently acquired).

The only “integration with popular software” currently offeed is Skylook for MS Outlook.

The Apps in the directory are available for either Windows PCs or Macs or both.

If you wish to submit an app to the directory, you’re asked to organize your app content an an .xml file, host the file in a location of your choosing (and provide that location) and review the terms and conditions.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Skype is acquiring popular group messaging app GroupMe.
