Brief Bits: Skype for iOS Given New Look in Latest Update

As spotted by The Next Web, Skype for iOS has been updated with improvements to the design of the keypad and instant messaging interfaces…

Skype’s visual refreshes in version 3.7 help distinguish between users in instant messages, adding colour to the main chat screen and a new bubble interface that separates messages according to the user that sends them.

The dialpad retains the exact same functionality as in older versions of the app but has been given a fresher look, with the old rounded key buttons removed and replaced with a full dark background that has similarities to Apple’s own dialer.

Additionally, the update also brought a number of stability improvements to the app for better performance on iOS 5.
