Skype’s so easy, even this kid can use it!


Skype for iPhone has been updated for iOS4. The App now supports multitasking to give users the ability to run Skype in the background as they talk to friends.

In addition to that, you will be notified when you receive calls whether you are running another App or your iPhone is locked so long as your App is running in the background.

Here are the features as listed on Skype’s App Store page:

Version 2.1
-Run Skype in the background with multitasking in iOS4. Recieve Skype calls and IM while other Apps are running or when your iPhone is locked. You can also continue your call while you switch to another Application. Multitasking is available only iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS.

We are still pulling for iPhone 4 support with 2-way video conferencing a-la Fring, which we at iSmashPhone have been enjoying. (note Fring service no longer supports video via Skype)
