Skype Update for iOS4 Promises Multitasking to Your iPhone

July 22, 2010, By Alex Ion

Folks from Skype have announced that their devs have come up with an update for iOS4 that will bring multitasking for your Apple branded handset.

That means that the new Skype iPhone application will sit tightly in the background, while you’ll be able to make and receive calls all day long (on 3G) for nada, or instant messages.

With the new Skype appl for iOS4, the best thing is that you don’t need to have it active on your screen in order to maintain calls — you can switch to another app if you want,  and the connection won’t break.

Run Skype in the background with multitasking in iOS4. Receive Skype calls and IM while other apps are running or when your iPhone is locked. You can also continue your call while you switch to another application. Multitasking is available only with iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS.

The latest version of Skype for iOS4 is now available in the App Store as a free download, which means that you can already give it a ride and tell us what you think about it.
