Over the last couple of releases, the Skype experience has improved a lot as there has been plenty of performance upgrades to the mobile app. The prior releases were aiming to make the app less battery hungry when it was running in background mode. This enabled users to run Skype throughout the day, while being able to respond to their calls, send, or receive IMs all day long.
The latest version of Skype’s iOS update can be downloaded from Apple iTunes App Store for iPhone and iPad. Keep in mind that the new Skype for iPad update supports any version of the iPad. However, the Skype for iPhone only supports 3GS, and iPhone 4, 4S, and 3rd Generation iPod touch.
