Skype for iPad Updated – Adds Clumsy Send & Receive Photos Ability

Skype iPad app

Skype for iPad – the iPad app for the ever-popular VOIP service – has been updated this week, to Version 4.1.

The one noteworthy feature in the update is this one:

Send and receive photos

Unfortunately, this new feature is not usable during a Skype call. It only works when you’re in simple chat / instant message mode – and the ability to send a photo in an IM app is nothing to write home about. Hopefully Skype will issue another update soon to make this feature work as I expect it was intended to, and allow photos to be sent while on a Skype call.

Here’s the remainder of the change list for this update:

Updated privacy setting
Fixed bug related to Bluetooth and calls
Minor visual improvements across the app
Other minor bug fixes
