Skype release Android update

November 11th, 2010 Tags: , , ,

Skype have released v1.0.1 of their Android client, which includes a lot of bug fixes and enhancements.  One of the key new features is support for small screen resolutions, so devices like the HTC Wildfire are now supported.  The other updates are:

320*240 and 240*400 screen resolutions are now supported.
Hardware back key is now supported.
Signing out from Skype now exits Skype.
Reduced power consumption in idle mode.
Improved login stability and behavior.
Improved performance with large contact lists.
Reduced application size.
General bug fixes.

There are still a number of known issues, so you are wise to check the Skype for Android webpage, but it’s looking a useful update.  To download, either head to the Skype for Android webpage, or search for Skype in the Android Marketplace.
