Well, it’s about time. Touted back in March as one of the pillar apps to benefit from the new multitasking API, Skype has finally been updated to iOS 4 compatibility. We’re seeing crisper, more retina display-friendly graphics and, more importantly, background VoIP (not for iPhone 3G, naturally). A notification window will pop up when you’re called or messaged, and you can use other apps while on the line chatting to international friends at reduced rates. Even on the lock screen, if you receive a call, sliding to unlock will take you immediately into the call. Video chat still isn’t here — a darn shame given the lack of other options now — but now you’ve got even more of a reason to rack up those rollover minutes on AT&T’s voice plan. Download away!

Update: Remember when Skype was talking about charging extra for calls over 3G starting this month? Straight from the horse’s mouth: “we no longer have plans to charge a supplement to make calls over 3G.”

Redsn0w 0.9.5 has been updated! which brings long awaited support for Windows users to jailbreak iOS 4 GM (formerly iPhone OS 4) on iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G. Like the last release, this update also includes optional support to enable multitasking and wallpapers on iOS 4.0 on iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G which otherwise are disabled by Apple.

Want to get your hands on an iOS 4-equipped device now without being a registered Apple developer? As a number of readers have pointed out, it seems yesterday’s gold build release works on any applicable iPhone / iPod touch whether or not its UDID has been sent to the dev center. Now that the previous restraint has been lifted, the only requirement now is a copy of iTunes 9.2 — currently for Macs only and still blocked by the developer gate, but once you manage to obtain the appropriate files, the only thing in your path is time itself. Sure enough, we just got through installing the build on an unregistered iPhone without a hitch. Details available via Gumball Tech, and please, don’t forget to back up your data ahead of time.

It’s oftentimes easy for us to get swept up in Android mania and forget that Google’s mobile platform is still in its infancy. Then we get cold hard numbers like these — showing iPhone OS owning 28 percent of the US smartphone market and closing in on RIM’s leading 35 percent — and we face up to the realization that Android handsets still account for less than one in every ten smartphones owned by Americans today. In spite of collecting 28 percent of all consumer smartphone purchases in the first quarter of 2010 (according to NPD), Google’s OS was only able to climb up a couple of percentage points in terms of total market share, showing just how long a road lies ahead of its world-conquering plans. Guess that now explains why Apple’s response to the earlier numbers was so nonchalant.

You can’t tether an iPhone to the iPad?

This isn’t so much news as it is a public service announcement: even in markets where iPhone tethering has launched, you’ve never been able to use it to connect to an iPad, and you won’t be able to when AT&T flips the switch on tethering with the release of OS 4. That’s clearly not AT&T’s fault, it’s Apple’s — the iPhone inexplicably supports only USB and Bluetooth for sharing its internet connection, even though jailbroken apps like MyWi prove that a WiFi connection is totally doable and countless other handsets already support WiFi routing. And iPad doesn’t support using another device as a Bluetooth modem, either. And as long as you’re paying the tethering fee, there’s no reason why AT&T wouldn’t want you tethering the iPad; you’ll certainly be able to do it with any phone in AT&T’s lineup that can create a WiFi hotspot, after all, and we’re sure they’d be happy to take your overage cash once you hit 2GB regardless of the device you’re using to gobble the data.
