Skype for iOS Update Adds Microsoft Account Support
Microsoft today made Skype 4.2 available for Apple's iOS devices via the App Store. The key change to Skype is the addition of support for Microsoft's Messenger, Hotmail, and Outlook.com services. iOS device users can sign in with a Microsoft account and merge their Skype and Microsoft contact databases. The app also allows iOS device users to conduct instant message chats with Windows Live messenger accounts. Other new features include the ability to edit IM messages, add animated emoticons, and create a new account from within the app itself. Skype 4.2 for iOS is a free download from the App Store.
