Skype for iPhone gets a major overhaul
A new version of the Skype application for iPhone has been released and the big news is that it is up to 5 times faster than the previous version, including both the startup of the app and when its running.
The user-interface has also been tweaked enabling you to swipe between screens and all the animations have been changed. Everything is just that bit smoother, faster and easier with Skype 5.0.
It also brings improved notification management because when once a message is viewed on one device it'll be marked as seen on all others. While, Asynchronous messaging ensures a message is automatically delivered the next time a user logs in.
Skype 5.0 for iPhone is available download on iPhones and iPods running on iOS 5 or later. It's also available now for Android and Windows smartphone, while seperate versions are available for tablets, including Apple iPads, Android and Windows tablets.
