Skype has pushed out a new version of its voice, video, and text chat app for iOS. Now anyone with a supported iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad can use a Bluetooth headset to make calls from the Skype app — but the most impressive new feature is image stabilization.
Now when you’re shooting video through the rear-facing camera on an iOS device Skype will automatically try to stabilize the video so that it looks less shaky.
That’s the good news. The less good news is that the new app also includes advertisements. If you’re a paying Skype customer with Skype Credit for making phone calls you’ll never see the ads, but if you use Skype to place free calls to other Skype users, the updated app will display ads.
Skype 188.8.131.52 is available as a free download for iPad or iPhone/iPod touch.
