Skype app for iOS has received a significant update today which enables video calling from the iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPod touch 4G and iPad client to virtually any Skype account in the world. You can now make iPhone to iPhone video calls, as well as iPhone to PC / Mac and vice versa.
Running a jailbroken iPhone on iOS 4 / 4.0.1 and having problems running Skype to its full potential? Well you don’t need to worry now. A new MobileSubstrate package has just been released in Cydia which fixes all issues that you maybe having running Skype on a iOS device which is jailbroken using the newly released JailbreakMe 2.0. To fix the issue, simply start Cydia and and apply all the updates, including that of MobileSubstrate version 0.9.3226-1 to run Skype with full multitasking support in iOS 4.
Although iPhone 3GS has a commendable 3.2 megapixel camera, but apart from very basic camera functionality, you can hardly do anything special with it. But then as they says that there is an app for just about anything on the iPhone, so is the case with this app as well. A new app by the name of Security Cam has just been approved which enables iPhone users to use their iPhone as security (or should I say spy?) camera.
Remember the Multifl0w app for iPhone which we posted about last month? Well a new multitasking app by the name of ProSwitcher has now been released, which outclasses multifl0w in each and every way possible. ProSwitcher is an iPhone app which allows switching between applications running in background in a beautiful Palm Pre style cover flow-like mode. It basically act as a graphical extension to the already popular app from Cydia called Backgrounder to present all opened apps in a tabbed view, similar to the view seen on Mobile Safari browser.

The following steps will help you setup Skype to run in the background so that you can receive incoming calls from your Skype contacts even when the phone is switched to sleep mode.
According to Apple, Multitasking or running apps in the background causes security problems and it negatively impacts battery life so they introduced Push Notification System. Here’s our top pick for the apps that can “Push” notifications.
