Skype has come out with the updated version of its mobile app for the Android platform. They have released the new version with two major updates and the first one is that now you can use Skype on the Samsung Galaxy S running with the Android 2.2 Froyo OS. The second one will enable you to install the app on the SD card once you are using the Android 2.2 Froyo.
The updated version will allow the users to make voice calls and send instant messages to other Skype users. It will make international phone calls very cheap by using SkypeOut credit and also helps in merging the users’ Skype and phone contact lists.
The updated version of Skype is now available for free download from the Android market.
Once you are able to save the application on the card it frees up several MB of space in the phone. Skype is said to use more disk space once the user start using it on the phone. So the new feature is definitely going to help those people who demand more space in their phone.
Although Skype claims the new version to free almost 15MB of space for most users, it may be a bit disappointing factor for many as moving apps to the SD card does not mean that the whole app gets moved to the SD card.
It is termed as disappointing because every MB counts as most of the Android phones come with limited space for installing applications.
