Skype now runs in background
Oh yes, it’s the moment that many of us have been waiting for, Skype will not run in the background from your iPhone. The free update allows multitasking for the 3GS and iPhone 4. Here are the details:
What’s New In Version 2.0.1
- 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.
We also reported back in May that Skype would be charging for use of 3G, but it would appear that these plans have now been scrapped. This is a very positive thing indeed!
