Skype has just updated its iOS app for iPhone and iPad, adding a couple of interesting new features that Iím sure will be welcome, and one that might not be so welcome Ė adverts! In the announcement on its Big Blog, Skype outlines the two major new features, namely anti-shake for the iPhone app, and Bluetooth support for both the iPad and iPhone. As you can see from the video above, the anti-shake feature is very impressive, being designed to prevent excessive shaking of video recorded from your iPhoneís back camera. The new Bluetooth support has apparently long been requested by Skype users, and means that you can now make hands-free Skype calls using Bluetooth-enabled headsets. However, also with these goodies comes the introduction of adverts for those who are not paying Skype customers or who donít have Skype Credit. This move follows on from the recent Skype for Mac update which also introduced adverts into the service. They are pretty unobtrusive though, it has to be said, running along a narrow strip at the bottom of the page.
