Skylook does for Skype what Outlook does for Email.

Outlook is great for tracking, organizing and archiving email – very important capabilities for modern businesses. Skylook extends Outlook so that those capabilities can be used for Skype calls and text chats, as well as emails.

Outlook is also great for keeping track of unactioned items. Skylook brings all unactioned Skype interactions (e.g. voice mail messages, missed instant messages) into the Outlook inbox, so that you can streamline your daily routine.
