Skype seems to be keeping its promise to regularly update its iOS app. Today the company pushed version 5.1 to the App Store with a focus on helping you delete messages and conversations.

In a blog post, Skype posted the follow update information:

  • You can now delete a conversation from the recent list with a long press on recents. You can also edit messages you’ve recently sent with a long press on the message. (Just as you can long press on an individual message to delete it.)
  • Tap the “add favorites” link to easily fill your favorites screen with the people you contact the most.
  • The People list now matches the desktop better: we have added the “Skype” filter; the “online” filter now includes users set to online, away and do not disturb; and best of all your filter settings are saved.

Skype says it will continue to use customer feedback to help lead its developer team on what features or changes need to be added to the app.
