We understand that some of you are experiencing several issues with the new updated version of Skype for iPhone/iPad released today. The problems you might be seeing include 1.) Skype Credit may not be showing 2.) Contacts are slow to sync 3.) Account settings (e.g. photo, name, profile) may not appear.
To address these issues, we recommend deleting your Skype app and starting a new installation from scratch. To update the Skype iPhone app, please delete it first by pressing and holding the app icon on your iPhone, and click the 'X'. To re-install, return to the AppStore, and install. This will prevent potential syncing issues.
We will address the problem in a hot-fix as quickly as we can, so that if you haven't installed the new update yet, you can just get an update that doesn't require you to delete the app first. We apologize for any inconvenience. Thanks for your patience.
Update: We've released a hot-fix update to address the issues mentioned above. Here's details about the update.
