Better than past versions
The one thing that all versions are missing is push notification badges. Only if you keep the app open does it show a badge. I like how much cleaner this version looks. I think you should be given an option to shut off the "favorites" list, if you only have a few contacts.
This update is a god-send. This isn't a "simple" Skype design. They went BACK. Skype was PERFECT on iOS5. They simply went back to the old look with a few touches, Which I'm GLAD they did. The "new" Skype design on the phone was ugly and not user friendly. This new update however, means they have realized their mistake, and simply went back to the old ios5 design. All I have to say is, ITS ABOUT TIME. I HOPE THIS NEW UPDARE IS BUG FREE AS THE IOS5 SKYPE.
Skype is proof of how you should use native design in iOS. And the features are getting better too, like: GIF support, accessibility, share contacts, etc. Good job!
