The new version fixes a few bugs besides introducing a couple of significant additions. iPhone users on Skype version 1.3 can IM in the landscape mode. Also, the new version comes with a call quality indicator helping users decide the right time to call. But besides these additions, the update has largely been a disappointment without the inclusion of features such as
, bluetooth support, Wi-Fi support, conference calling or VoIP over 3G.
As we had mentioned in our article yesterday, the non-availability of VoIP over 3G is completely understandable since it is
. Having said that, with over five months having passed since the last update, the inclusion of push notification was largely anticipated and the non availability of the same is sure to irk a lot of long-time users.
According to Peter Parkes from the Skype team, the company is still working on enabling push notifications. He writes
“we’re working on this(Push notification); we’ll release a version with Push notifications when the experience has been perfected.”
We hope another quick update is soon made to bring push notification. Meanwhile, readers looking to download the app may do so by
(iTunes Link). What do you think of the new updates? Please tell us in the comments.
