I dont think there will ever be an app. looks like they will be using HTML5 instead for it which the PlayBook does support.

Re: Sign the "Skype for the BlackBerry Playbook" Petition.

Logically, which is an attitude sadly lacking with some posters, why would anyone not want Skype for the Playbook?

 

Far better to have it than on a Blackberry Smartphone, with its relatively small screen.

 
Most of us have it on our home computers, but to be out and about, at, perhaps, a significant event, why on earth would that not be the greatest thing since sliced bread???

Re: Sign the "Skype for the BlackBerry Playbook" Petition.

It is a shame skype has not made an effort for the playbook, many developers didnt think it was worth it until BB10 was announced and RIM is catering to developers with free tools and devices. There will be a lot of new stuff coming after Oct once released.

 

I never said Skype was bad or not worth it. I too would use it but its not a dire need for me as it seems to be for quite a lot of people.

 

I am glad skype went to BBJam to see what it is all about, that is a positive move by Skype.
