Millions of people use Skype for iPhone or Skype for iPad each month. Today, with updates to both apps, we are introducing a frequently requested feature: Photo Sharing for iOS. In addition, we’ve made some improvements to the performance of the app, as we know many of you want to keep Skype running on your mobile devices all the time.
The new Photo Share feature will let you send photos you’ve shot on your iPad or iPhone directly to friends or family members via Skype. There’s no limit on the size of the file you can send, so you can send photos without reaching email size limits or paying expensive MMS charges.
Over the last couple of releases, we’ve started to improve the overall performance of Skype’s mobile apps. The prior release began to make them less battery hungry when running in the background, so you can answer Skype calls throughout the day when they come in. And, as you’ll be able to keep Skype open, you can respond to or send IMs to friends and colleagues all day long. In addition, this latest release improves the app start and the contact list loads even faster, so you can do all the things you love to do with Skype more quickly.
