Skype Rolls Out Major Update For iPhone And iPad App

Skype has just released a new version (v4.0) of its iPhone and iPad apps, which includes a new feature, some UI and stability improvements and bug fixes.

Here’s what’s new in 4.0:

  • New feature: ability to move own video preview
  • App auto restarts if unexpectedly shut down
  • Improved accessibility
  • Improved stability
  • Updated design for contacts and messages
  • New sign in screen
  • Other minor UI improvements
  • Bug fixes

The ability to move own video preview – a feature that is available in FaceTime is a nice enhancement as the static position of the video preview was quite a pain.

You can download the update via the Updates tab in the App Store app or download Skype for iPhone using this App Store link and Skype for iPad using this App Store link.
