Skype has issued an updated version of its Android app for making VoIP calls to phone numbers or other Skype users. Skype for Android 1.01 includes a smaller (but still rather large) memory footprint, stability improvements, reduced power consumption, and somebug fixes.

The app also now supports Android devices with low resolution 320 x 240 and 240 x 400 pixel displays, which should allow the app to run on more devices.

There’s improved support for the “back” key in Android, so that when you use the back key to exit the app, the user interface closes but the Skype process continues to run so you can receive incoming calls and instant messages. To exit Skype altogether you need to sign out of Skype.

Skype 1.01 for Android is available for Android 2.1 and up. It’s a free download from the Android Market.
