Skype 5.1 for iPhone introduces some of the features you wanted most:
- You can now delete a conversation from the recent list with a long press on recents. You can also edit messages you’ve recently sent with a long press on the message. (Just as you can long press on an individual message to delete it.)
- Tap the “add favorites” link to easily fill your favorites screen with the people you contact the most.
- The People list now matches the desktop better: we have added the “Skype” filter; the “online” filter now includes users set to online, away and do not disturb; and best of all your filter settings are saved.
- Edit a message -> press and hold on a message in a chat to edit.
- VoiceOver improvements.
- General improvements.
If you’ve not already downloaded the remastered Skype for iPhone, you can get the update from the Apple App Store – all you’ll need is iOS 7 or later.
