With the official release of version 2.0.1, Skype for iOS now supports the multitasking feature of iOS. If you’re using an iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, or an iPod Touch 3rd Gen, you’ll be able to keep Skype running in the background as you use other applications. You’ll be able to receive and continue calls even when you’re in the middle of completing a task.

This is what the multitasking model used in iOS 4 was designed for — keeping an important function of an application turned on while eliminating the bells and whistles of the full app. This gives you everything you need while conserving as much battery life as possible. It might not be a panacea, but it is a pretty slick implementation of multitasking that effectively has shut up the competition in regards to the “Multitasking Checkbox.”
