Skype updated for iOS 7, improved accessibility

Skype has been promising some big updates over the next little while, including chat sync, but today they're starting off with a fresh, new, iOS 7-themed makeover for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPhone that's definitely cleaner, flatter, and more-content centric. They've also improved accessibility, which is fantastic to hear. According to Jonathan Watson on the Skype blog, those improvements include:

  • Improved accessibility of dialpad with touchtype support
  • VoiceOver announces the senders name when messaging
  • VoiceOver improvements for group chats

If you already have Skype for iPhone or iPad, check your auto-refresh or update away, if not, grab it from the App Store now:
