Version 6.6 of Skype is out now for iPads and iPhones everywhere. With it comes some neat multitasking functionality that should make life a little easier.

 

 

Now within instant message windows you'll notice highlighted phone numbers, addresses, times, and dates. Tapping these will allow you to easily make a call, plan a trip via Apple Maps, and set up a calendar event, respectively. The events functionality is particularly impressive as it uses details from your conversation to set it up, and includes a link to the specific chat -- helpful if you need to remember details about it, or want to quickly make a call when the time comes.

 

Additionally, it's now easier to get back into active calls from chat and contact list windows -- just tap the active call banner. Unread messages are easier to navigate, too: just click the new back button in chat windows to see what you've missed (a handy unread message counter will show you exactly how much you've missed).
