Microsoft’s controlled Skype team has today released another update to its Skype for iOS devices; the new update is significant to some old updates to the Skype iOS app for iPhone and iPad. The new Skype application for iPhone and iPad is come with new UI elements, and fixes to old most known bugs of the application on iPhone and iPad. The new Skype application for iPhone and iPad is still not yet completely upgraded with the most user’s requirement, as still many important UI elements and features are missing from the application, and the application looks bit confusing to the first-time users of Skype on iPhone & iPad.

 

Skype for iPhone & iPad

Skype for iPhone and Skype for iPad both applications are updated to new version, and both are available in the App Store for free download. However, the new Skype application comes with new log-in screen, and some elements that allow users to restore the application to the point, where it crashes. Updated Skype iOS app also allows users to arrange their own video preview on the screen while chatting with buddies, or clients. Undoubtedly, Skype is one of the most important, and popular application of smartphones, and as well as of iPhone and iPad users.

Personally, I have tested the updated application, and feels the bit comfortable than earlier, as new gestures and features allow me to optimize the application. The new application also comes with apparently new UI for contacts and messages. Here is the complete change log of Skype 4.0:

 

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

On the other side, in news we have today heard that a big exploit in Skype allow hackers to access the IP address of its all users, even allow the hackers to dig into the service servers to get local-IP addresses and locations of the users, who uses the service.
