    Default Skype is horrible...

    Seriously this has to be the laggiest most unresponsive and full of force closes app I have ever used. What the heck is wrong with this app, there is a 3 second delay before what I touch on the screen to when the app actually opens it or it tells me to force close then I gotta reboot my device. This is like 1995 dialup Internet agonizing.

    lol, I don't see how that works. Just don't use the app if it's that bad and you're back to the "better" scenario of not having the app.

    To be honest, when I first installed the app, I thought the same thing. But once you get used to it and be a little patient. It works.

    I disagree. I'll gladly wait one second after I touch the screen to talk to my family while I'm out of town than to not have that capability at all.

    When BBM goes cross-platform it will render Skype obsolete.

    I find that the Skype works pretty good. Made a call to Germany a couple days ago and it worked fine. No complaints here

    I'm going to record how dysfunctional Skype is on my device and post it on YouTube for you to see. I can't believe something runs like this in 2013, there is no excuse for it.

    I've used Skype...and no issues while chatting...

    The only concern being that the phone becomes really hot and battery drains like crazy..
    I've used Skype a lot on z10...

    Agreed. I think bbm will probably be able to be used on computers too eventually so as you said Skype will be obsolete.

    They need to fix their Android ports. It seems like that they are slow.

    I'm going to add my experience to the thread. I don't use Skype much but I tried it today on my Z10, for a ten minute video call. It worked fine, but it did use a lot of juice. There were no problems with lag or responsiveness.
