Skype: now on 100 million Android phones

Skype said today its Skype for Android app is now on more than 100 million phones worldwide and launched a redesign of that app.

Skype for Android 4.0 has a cleaner design. It’s also designed to make it easier and faster to start conversations with your contacts, with a list of recent conversations popping up upon opening the app, and being able to open a messaging window by tapping on a person in your Contacts or Favorites tabs, according to Skype.
