What is URI Support?
By bringing back URI support to the Skype app for the iPhone, users will now have easier access to start Skype conversations with the app. The URI support gives developers easier ways to give users ways to start calls and chats directly from the mobile app and mobile website, and doesn’t require them to build their own.
All the user has to do is tap on the Skype name or phone number, and then the URI will open the Skype app to connect to the call or message. This quicker access has been wanted from users as Skype removed it from previous versions, but brought it back with version 5.10. This will make a major improvement to the Skype app.
