Skype Updated to 2.1, Runs in Background

Skype 2.0 Can Now Make Calls on 3G & EDGE

Available In: App Store       Price: Free

So, if you have a jailbroke iPhone or iPod touch, you can update and the app will still work but don’t run to them for tech support… they might turn you down. [Read more…]
