Good news today for all of you Skype users out there. The video-chatting service released a solid update for both its iPhone and iPad applications this morning with some UI changes, and other improvements.
Those improvements include a fix that makes one-on-one chats [finally] show up in correct order, and the ability to quickly dismiss your recent chats as ‘read.’ But the star of the update is the new calling UI…
Here’s the change log for today’s update:
-Beautiful new calling experience.
-Mark all your recent chats as read with just a few taps.
-General fixes and improvements.
-One-to-one chats now appear in the correct order.
As you can see, Skype describes its new interface as a “beautiful new calling experience.” And it’s true, the new look is cleaner and more modern than before. Though functionality-wise, it’s not that different.
Frequent Skype users will want to grab this update for the iOS client immediately. It’s not a must for casual users, but it’s always nice to have the latest version. As usual, you can find Skype in the App Store for free.
