Skype for iPhone Update Brings Back URI Support

Posted by · 8949 views · Translate

Skype for iPhone has received an update that brings back URI support, offers new improvements to the dialer, and improves chat notification reliability.

Skype 5.10 for iPhone brings support back for Skype URIs, which enable developers to easily use Skype’s messaging and calling infrastructure to start calls and chats straight from their mobile app or mobile website, rather than building their own. As long as the Skype app is installed on an iPhone, when a user taps on a Skype name or phone number, the URI will open the Skype app to connect a call or send a message*, making it faster than ever to reach friends, family or businesses.

• Find all your friends and family in an instant - With over 300 million people using Skype, you’re bound to bump into someone you know.
• Talk with your fingers - No matter where you are, your friends are always available with free messaging.
• Call your world from Skype - Free voice and video calls let you talk to your heart’s content with all your friends and family on Skype.
• Low cost calls to mobiles and landlines too - Keep in touch, even if they’re not on Skype, with low cost calls to mobiles and landlines on the other side of town or the world.
• Share your favorite snaps - Take a great photo you want to share? Send it over Skype to friends and family and you won’t have to worry about email size limits or expensive MMS charges.
• Video messaging – Record life’s everyday moments and share them with the people who matter most, with free and unlimited video messaging over Skype.
• Chat with anyone, anywhere - Skype’s available on smartphones, tablets, Macs, PCs, and even TVs. Whatever your friends or family use, Skype is there. Simple.

What's New In This Version:
·        Improved chat notification reliability - we are continuing to work on improving reliability but if you encounter issues please let us know by tapping your profile picture, tapping the more button and selecting send feedback
·        Now save phone numbers entered into the dial pad and numbers in the recent calls list
·        General Improvements

I'm a big fan of receiving a picture I can't see unless I download the latest version, because Skype decided peer to peer was inferior to cloud share hoarding in other words, Until I upgrade to the latest gigibyte gobbler, everyone at Skype can see the picture and I can't. Fk Microsoft (purchaser of skype) and Google, everything they touch they destroy (example #2: YouTube).

Skype has been a POS for quite some time now. I have a mac with Yosemite installed and I a unable to log in. I can happily log in on another machine with the same specs with the same account quite happily (note a fresh install of Yosemite + all updates). On iOS, I only get notification sounds if my screen is locked. That is if I am in another app or in Skype itself I get no notification of an incoming message or call. Voice calls drop out on all but the best networks. Skype for iOS can no longer receive photos sent from other clients but provides a non helpful message stating that "this app only support Skype's new photo sharing feature" which equates to, Skype wants to maintain a copy of everything you send to someone else, no peer to peer for you. Once upon a time Skype was the solution to IP telephony and video calls, now that there are many competitors on the market, and that Skype is being driven into the ground on all but Windows platforms, Skype will soon be dead.
