Skype updated, now supports portrait calling on tablets

Portrait calling is now supported on the updated Skype app

The Skype application has been updated which now provides users with an improved UI and a new feature - portrait calling. While Skype now supports portrait calling, the rest of the application is stuck in landscape.

On paper it may not sound like a big problem, but if you were mid-Skype call and wanted to check your contacts or start another call, the UI is locked in landscape and you'd need to physically move the tablet around before you could easily see what you were doing. I don't know what Skype were thinking when they released an app with portrait video calling but the UI continuing to crank along in landscape, so hopefully we see another update shortly.
