Skype Update: Now Has Multitasking

As many of you know, Skype is a free VoIP service that allows you to make cheap international calls (computer to phone), and free text, video, and voice calls from computer to computer. Skype came out with an update in May to allow iPhone users to make calls via their 3G connection.

Now, it’s come out with another update that supports multitasking — the long awaited update!  Not only has it updated the multitasking, but also it’s taking advantage of the iPhone 4’s Retina Display, which makes it look a lot cleaner.

Personally, I’m really excited for the multitasking.  The only mic that I have is for my iPod touch because I can’t afford a mic for my computer.  When I want to make a Skype call, it always seems like I want to check my email, go on Facebook, etc.  And with the multitasking capability, I can.  Also, even when your iPhone/iPod touch is locked, you can still receive calls, and talk in one.
