Skype has today released updates to both of its iOS apps. Each now includes Bluetooth support for the first time plus some other goodies.
The iPhone/iPod touch app has been completely redone and now includes an easier-to-use interface. On the downside, advertising is now shown to users that do not have Skype Credit, a calling subscription or premium subscription. In addition, the update brings enhanced video through image stabilization to the iPhone. Take a look:
Other Version 3.5.84 changes include:
- Bluetooth support for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4th Generation, and iPad 2
- Incoming emoticons; outgoing emoticons displayed when entered in text form
Best of all, the latest update appears to eliminate the security vulnerability first uncovered one week ago. The cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability was present in the 3.0.1 version of Skype.
Skype for iPad
The newer of the two apps also now includes those pesky advertisements for non-paying customers plus Bluetooth support for iPad 2 users. There is also a bugfix for security vulnerability.
