It’s not all that long since the iPhone operating system was updated to iOS4. There is now a steady trickle of app being released that have been designed to take full advantage of iOS4’s support for multitasking, and the latest version of Skype is one such app.
Skype 2.0.1 sounds like it is a minor update judging by the small version number increase, but this version adds support for multitasking. This means that it is possible to receive Skype calls and instant messages while other programs are running or when your phone is locked. As multitasking support gives you the ability to switch to other apps while making a call, you can used Safari to check something while in the middle of a conversation.
Calls can be made over 3G or wireless internet connections, and as these calls are completely free of charge, Skype provides a great way to keep in touch with your friends, family and contacts wherever they are in the world.
Skype 2.0.1 can be downloaded free of charge from the app store or via iTunes.
