Skype iOS Apps Get Photo Sharing With New Update
The Skype blog has announced today that Skype’s popular iOS apps have just been updated with several new features, including Photo Sharing for iOS, which Skype says has been “frequently requested.” The new feature will let the user send photos that they’ve shot on their iPad or iPhone directly to other users, such as friends or family members, via Skype. Skype says there is no size limit, so you can send photos without worrying about email size limits or MMS costs. Skype says that it has also been working to improve the apps’ overall performance, with the previous update making the apps “less battery hungry” for those people who like to keep Skype open and running in the background all day. These performance enhancements continue with this latest update, and the new release also includes an improved app start and faster loading contact list.

Skype updates include stealing your contacts
Skype is now FORCING you to upload your contact list to THEIR servers or you cannot use the app. That is right - if you don't agree to it the app LOGS YOU OUT!!!!
I am NOT trusting my personal data to yet another company so it can get hacked and stolen. Personal information is just that - PERSONAL. No company should be able to demand such invasive treatment of their users.
I am ditching Skype - this is the last straw!
