When we’re on our phones and tablets we’re often doing several things at once, from researching a holiday, planning nights out, sending emails or messaging friends – we switch in and out of the apps that help us get things done. Today we’re pleased to launch Skype 6.6 for iPhone and iPad, a new version that helps make multi-tasking with Skype a little bit easier.
Here’s what’s new:
Quickly set up calendar events, start calls and check locations directly from an instant message – In Skype 6.6, you’ll notice that phone numbers, addresses, times and dates are now highlighted. Simply tap on the highlighted text to start an action. A highlighted address will take you straight to Apple Maps and a highlighted phone number will open the Skype dialpad for you to immediately start a Skype call to a phone number (don’t forget to add some Skype credit to your account).
