Find out about the potential pitfalls of this newly updated app, and check out Skype's funny video announcement, after the break.
The last Skype app update came over the Summer, shortly after the debut of iOS 4.0; it allowed free calling over 3G and support for multitasking. While this current update is hotly anticipated, it doesn't come without its potential hiccups. Despite the ability to make video calls over AT&T's 3G network, Skype does encourage using a WiFi connection when available for the best image quality, for example. Plus, video calling over the 3G network is a major data suck, so if you're on one of AT&T's tiered data plans, think twice before initiating a marathon Skype session.
You can download the free app and update from the App Store now.
