Skype for OS7?

Hello,

 

As the first post for this forum I want to ask - Will 9720 finally bring Skype for OS7? Texting would be enough, but we really NEED this.

 

Thanks!

Re: Skype for OS7?

Yes for now. However since they release brand new OS7 device I hope this would boost some more OS7 support and thus a Skype, because OS7 lacks 2 very important features - native Youtube player and Skype texting. And while there are some Youtube solutions, there is not ANY Skype solution.

Hey your right my friend, that is good question maybe we should wait for the spec of the new OS7 device if it hasn't already been released yet or contact Skype support to see if they'll be rolling out with OS 7 version.

Hey Rob,

Honestly I don't think Skype will allocate resources to develop a OS7 version. I honestly hope BBRY will do that, as it's in their best interest.

Well Sorry my friend BlackBerry doesn't develop the apps its on Skype to do so and they already release one for OS 10 if you truly need it your going to have to make the switch if its important to you.
