Microsoft is rolling out an update for its iPhone version of Skype today that will offer users some improvements to its dialer. The 5.10 version will also enable users to launch Skype calls and chats from other mobile apps or mobile websites.
Here's what's been added to the dialer in the Skype app for the iPhone:
Now you can save phone numbers that have been entered into the dial pad and also phone numbers in your recent calls list. When you save the phone numbers, you can easily create new contacts so you don't have to search for the number next time you call.
Support for Skype URIs has been added to the iPhone app. Here's how they will work:
As long as the Skype app is installed on an iPhone, when a user taps on a Skype name or phone number, the URI will open the Skype app to connect a call or send a message, making it faster than ever to reach friends, family or businesses.
