Skype for iPhone 1.2: adds call forwarding, SMS and quality improvements
We’ve updated our iPhone app – you can now make video calls.
The latest update to Skype for iPhone and iPod touch brings a number of improvements:
- You can set up call forwarding from your iPhone – forward Skype calls to a phone number when you’re not signed in, so you can pick up calls even when the Skype app isn’t running on your device
- Improved performance and better audio quality when making Skype-to-Skype calls
- It’s even easier to send text messages (SMS) – you can now send SMSs from the Call tab
For those of you in need of a refresher, it also lets you make free Skype-to-Skype calls, and save money with great value calls to landlines and mobiles. Calling is only available over a WiFi connection, but all other features (SMS, IM and presence included) work over any mobile data connection too. Full details are elsewhere on the website.
