Skype and iPhone battery life
Authored by: Typhoon14 on Jan 28, '13 08:30:18AM

Yes, Skype will destroy your battery. I have to leave it running during the day for work and it drives me nuts. As a VOIP app, Skype doesn't use push notifications - it's actually allowed to maintain an active background process, and apparently a particularly inefficient one.

As an aside, Skype's Android app is equally draining, if not more so.
