Re: Skype for BBz10

I was patiently waiting for Skype also! I had heard for a while that it would be forthcoming with the Q10 10.1 OS release and that seems to have happened as promised.  The official z10 version will apparently have to wait for 10.1 to be published for the z10 in a few weeks.  However I downloaded the Skype.bar file based on a link on the Crackberry site and sideloaded the file to my z10 following the pretty easy to follow instructions also on the Crackberry site.  And voila the icon appeared on the z10 and the Skype application has worked well so far for me.  That said I am a reluctant Skpe user on my phone -- much preferring to run the app on the nice big screen on my Sony laptop in the comfort of my home office!  But so far in a pinch Skype on the BB10 seems to be just fine.

Re: Skype for BBz10

This is the links I used to get the Android .bar file:

And here are the instructions for loading the .bar to your z10:

Only little problem I had was getting DDPB to connect to my z10 via Blackberry link but once I got the ip address and dev mode password correct it was fine!

 

Good luck

Re: Skype for BBz10

Skype is on Blackberry World now -- you should be able to install if you have OS 10.1 on your z10.
