skype-ios-7

Microsoft pushed out an update to Skype for the iPhone and the iPad that brings a new look and feel to the app. Not surprisingly, the popular video messaging client has a new look and feel that blends in with Apple’s latest OS. It’s one of many high-profile apps to jump on the bandwagon and adopt the flat design of iOS 7.

The biggest news for Skype is the new iOS-inspired design, but there a few other changes Microsoft made to its messaging client. From its release notes, Skype for the iPad and for the iPhone now include:

  • Accessibility improvements
    • Improved accessibility of dialpad with touchtype support
    • VoiceOver announces the senders name when messaging
    • VoiceOver improvements for group chats
  • General Fixes

It’s a modest update that is worth the install just for the new and improved UI. You can download Skype for the iPhone and Skype for the iPad from the iOS App Store.
