Skype for iPad Now Looks Better Than Ever

Slowly but surely, developers are updating their iOS applications, and more specifically, their iPad apps to support the new iPad’s high-resolution Retina Display. Today, we can add another big name to the list as Skype has announced that it has updated its iPad application for use with the new iPad’s new display. Those who use Skype on a fairly regular basis on their iPad will want to make sure to grab the update.

The update doesn’t bring much else it seems.

But that shouldn’t bother those that have picked up Apple’s new device as the application is now going to look better than it ever has before.

And even if you don’t have Apple’s new iPad, Skype recommends that you download the new version, version 3.8, anyway.

Skype for iPad Now Supports the Retina Display

The Retina Display is one of the new features on Apple’s new tablet device and it might just be the most exciting of the bunch. The Retina Display delivers four-times the amount of pixels of its predecessors on the iPad 2 and the iPad.

Applications that have been updated to support the new display look absolutely stunning. Unfortunately, not all of the applications in the iOS App Store feature support for it.

However, it seems like every day that a new app gets Retina Display support so if your favorite app isn’t updated quite yet, it should be only a matter of time before it gains it.

Apple’s new iPad is already another smash hit with the company announcing that it sold three million units in the first three days of its availability and just last week, the device arrived in another batch of markets around the world.

You can download Skype for iPad from the iOS App Store.
