Skype has released an update for its iOS application, which also brings a host of new and neat features including some bug fixes. The updated Skype application can now be used through a Bluetooth headset or handsfree just the way you use it while making a regular call.
To make the app much more usable while walking and even while driving Skype has added a video stabilisation feature. Along with this some tweaks have been made to the interface as well to make the app easier to use.
But along with the good additions Skype has decided to spoil the fun for freeloaders. Now users who do not use the premium features that require them to purchase and use Skype credits will see advertisements while making free video and voice calls to other Skype users.
With the security vulnerability bug fix, we hope that Skype users will now be much more secure despite having confidential data on their devices.
Skype’s latest version of the mobile audio/video and text chat application is compatible with devices running iOS version 4.0 and above. It is advised to users that they connect to a high speed internet source such as a 3G data or WiFi hotspot to download this browser as it is a 26.1 MB installation file and can take a while to download over a regular GPRS connection.
The updated Skype application is available for download from the iTunes store. Users who wish to install it can visit the app store from their smartphone or can follow this link to download it directly.
