Skype for iPad, iPod & iPhone now with anti-shake, bluetooth'¦and ads.

Skype has released new versions of its client software for iPads and iPhones that eliminates the effects of shake when the rear video camera is used for Skype video calls and that adds bluetooth connectivity.

In a posting on Skype's blog, product manager Heather Le Roy said: "You will now be able to use Bluetooth-enabled headsets to make hands-free Skype calls. This will make life easier while you're on conference calls, on the road, or simply don't want to hold your iPhone or iPad in-hand." The upgrade supports both iPad and iPad2, iPhone 3G, 3GS and 4, and second and third generation iPod Touch.

There is, however a downside to the upgrade. Le Roy says: "As with our recent Mac update, there will be an advertising platform introduced in this new release. Paying Skype consumers or users with Skype Credit will not see any display ads on their iPhones or iPads."

The new update also has some problems, Le Roy says: "We understand that some of you are experiencing several issues with the new updated version'¦The problems you might be seeing include: Skype Credit may not be showing; contacts are slow to sync; account settings (eg photo, name, profile) may not appear. More info on how to fix this can be found here."
