Skype has just released the first major update to its very first app outside its main Skype video calling business, Skype Qik.
Released in October, Skype Qik is a video messaging app with a touch of Snapchat: Each video in the app lasts for two weeks before disappearing, and a video can be deleted before then whether its been watched or not.
The first major update to Skype Qik features a new ^ menu that not only lets you delete a video, but also enables you to save it to your camera roll for safekeeping or send it to another conversation for further sharing.

The update also adds the ability to resend a new SMS invitation to a friend in case the earlier one wasnt opened.
And just in time for the holidays, Skype Qik has been updated with an Easter egg (pardon the mangled seasonal references) that lets you shake your device to make snowflakes fall down your screen:
Finally, and most welcomely, the update optimizes Skype Qik with native resolution for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
