Skype Updates iPhone App with Multitasking, Promises Free 3G Calls

http://www.pcmag.com

Skype on Wednesday announced that it had added multitasking and improved call quality on its iPhone app. Taking advantage of iOS 4's ability to selectively multitask, Skype's app can now receive calls while working with another app or while on the home screen. Users potentially can also switch from Skype to another app while on a phone call.
The app update also includes graphics that take full advantage of the iPhone 4's retina display and says it "allows you to make calls with high quality sound." No further details are given about either one of these two attributes, but they are welcome. Skype also announced that it no longer had plans to charge extra for making calls over 3G. We previously reported that Skype had planned to charge for calls made over 3G sometime in the future. It's possible they received enough negative response from the announcement to change their plans. We recently reviewed Skype for iOS and awarded it 3.5 stars. Two of the major drawbacks Contributing Editor Jamie Lendino had with the app were no background calling and the premise of paying for 3G calls in the future. Since both of these issues are addressed with the latest update

Skype Finally Breaks Free on the iPhone

http://www.wired.com

If any doubt lingered that voice is now just another feature on cellphones, the latest version of Skype for the iPhone should dispel it. Skype can now receive calls when the app is running invisibly in the background, which was a major omission in previous versions released before Apple added multitasking to its OS. Combined with the May addition of support for Skype calls over AT&T’s 3G data network — and Skype’s simultaneous decision to keep 3G calls free indefinitely — the app is now a workable replacement for the iPhone’s normal calling feature, especially for those people who have Skype accounts which provide real telephone numbers. Video calling is not included — “yet,” we hope, since the iPhone 4 is the first model to have a front-facing camera. But that feature may have a hard time passing Apple muster since it duplicates a new core functionality, FaceTime. Still, this is what we’ve been talking about when we spoke of mobile VoIP nirvana, and it puts the iPhone in the forefront of Skype handsets (in the United States, anyway). Skype mobile is available on a handful of Android and Blackberry phones with Verizon

So Why Would You Jailbreak Your iPhone, Anyway?

http://blogs.barrons.com

With all this chatter about the Library of Congress making it kosher to jailbreak your Apple (AAPL) iPhone, let’s take a minute to look at what new things your newly liberated, warranty-violating device can now do. Or go see for yourself: Cydia, basically a mini-App Store for jailbroken iPhones, offers a range of both free and paid applications. Some examples: Wi-Fi Sync, $9.99, enables wireless syncing of your iPhone with ITunes.
Infinboard, $1.99, allow infinite vertical scrolling; effectively, you can put as many icons as you want on your home screen. SNES4Iphone, $7.99, lets you play old Super Nintendo games on your iPhone or Touch. Snappy, $1.99, is “a camera app for the iPhone that launches and is ready to take pictures in one second, without having to exit your currently running application.” MXTube: “The iPhone’s first native YouTube video downloader. Download your YouTube videos and watch them later.” WinterBoard: Add themes to your iPhone screens.

Go ahead and iPhone jailbreak, it's legal now

http://www.cnet.com

On Monday, the U.S Copyright Office ruled that jailbreaking an iPhone or other mobile device will no longer violate federal copyright law. Some iPhone owners no doubt cheered the news, and I join them in supporting the decision. "Jailbreak" entered the wireless lexicon soon after the iPhone first went on sale in 2007. Though some CNET readers have asked me if jailbreaking is the same as unlocking a handset, it's actually a different process. When you jailbreak an iPhone, you remove the Apple-imposed restrictions that prevent you from loading applications not sold through the iTunes App Store. Unlocking, on the other hand, only removes the restrictions that tie your iPhone to AT&T. So on the same phone, you can perform just one action or, if you prefer, both. I welcome the decision because I've always advocated for giving customers as many choices as possible. Yes, I understand that jailbreaking carriers some risks--you void your warranty and you could wind up with a bricked phone if you're not careful--but those risks, rather than breaking the law, should be the only consequences that consumers should face.
