Does skype encrypt messages when using a third party application like IM+ for iPhone?

Hello experts,

I am using IM+ for iPhone to chat with other Skype users. I am doing so because in my business place Skype application is blocked and never login.

The question: Does IM+ encrypt messages? Or are them sent in plain text?

i do not think that they are encrypted you can Access chat history in app and at https://plus.im
the https part means that it is secured but not necessarily encrypted
