Updated Skype App Adds Editing Features and Microsoft Account Support

I Skype with my nephew at least once per week. I also Skype with my dad, who lives in Mexico, and my crazy uncle in Hawaii. Basically, if they don’t have an Apple device, I Skype them. Today, the popular communication service has updated their iOS app to include Microsoft account support, as well as message editing and the ever-popular emoticon compatibility. (My mom loves those little smiley faces!)

The addition of Microsoft support allows users to log into Skype using their Messenger, Hotmail, and Outlook accounts and access their contacts directly from within the app. All you have to do is sign into your account and merge with Skype.

Who would have thought to combine word games with bubble popping? Bubblis HD is a little bit of this and a little bit of that with a whole lot of ”huh?” thrown in. You don’t need a big vocabulary to play this word game, but you do need a good strategy.

Players start off with a list of words and seven slots for letters. The word list only shows the first word until there is space on the board for the second and third, and so on.

With a little in-app guidance, you will learn that each animal needs food, water, a clean place to live and attention.
