It's the Mac version that desperately needs a "new experience," not iOS.

I don't understand why they wouldn't use the Apple Push Notifications like every other voip app in the App Store. Skype has the most unreliable call notifications. Most of the time it'll notify a missed call only when you open the app. The app also stays in the background all the time, eating battery cycles.

Judging by that list, they STILL aren't properly using iOS Push Services. That means you cannot be logged in to even RECEIVE incoming notifications if the app isn't running 24/7, burning battery and RAM.

Other IM apps don't have to stay running to stay logged in.
