Skype for iOS has been updated to version 4.6. Skype say there is a “Beautiful new calling experience” which when I tested it looked like it has a cleaner UI with a similar look to the Android and Windows version. There is also an easier way to mark chats as read and bug fixes.
The app is free from the iTunes app store.
