Skype re-released on iTunes for iPhone, features new design

Microsoft has re-released Skype for iOS, featuring a clean redesign, new gestures and more. As previously reported, v5.0 of Skype includes a new modern hub-centric design that prioritizes recent conversations; users can swipe to see their favorite people or contacts. Messaging is more reliable, and users can create groups, share photos to offline contacts, and exchange video messages. In-app notifications for quick conversation switching is also available, and controls can manage the frequency of what one is notified about. Skype can be downloaded through iTunes for devices running iOS 7.0 or later.



LaunchBar 6 arrives, adds new UI, live search results

Objective Development has released a new version of its productivity tool, LaunchBar. LaunchBar 6 offers a redesigned user interface with theme options, and new custom script-based actions that permit extensibility, such as suggestions for Google and DuckDuckGo, live Calendar input feedback, new indexing rules like Emoji or Finder Tags, and more. Live web searches are now available within the software, via Google, Wikipedia, DuckDuckGo or dict.cc. LaunchBar requires OS X 10.9 or later, with pricing starting at $30 for a single license. Full release notes are available through Objective Development.
