Skype, as you know, is currently being used by millions of people around the globe. Used widely for voice and video calls, it is probably the most sought after means of communication apart from texting and instant messaging.
Though Skype is part of Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8, Microsoft has now decided to take it beyond Windows and expand to iOS and Android too.
In that bid, Skype has released its iOS app that lets users share photos from their existing iOS photo library or capture a new picture from their iPhone or iPad camera and then simply share it with their contacts.
One of the biggest advantages of this app is that there is no size limit on the photos that can be sent or received. Sending photos through Skype is free of cost and thus it is a great substitute in place of the expensive MMS texting.
One of the other changes included in the update is the improvement in performance and battery life. Earlier, since VoIP apps used to stay open all the time, Skype used to drain out more battery than most others. Skype for iPhone and iPad are now available for download totally free of cost from the iOS App Store. Check it out, folks!
