    Don't update Skype!!-img_20150919_204441.png

    Here's my issue with Skype from using it just today. I had my WiFi turned on but for whatever reason, it decided to use my mobile data instead for a 45 minute video call. Anyone else ever had a similar issue? Is there a fix for this, other than disabling the mobile network during a video call?

    Today, I de-Android'ed my Passport. Took out Cobalt's GPS, and all Android apps except a few I like that don't request GPS. Phone runs smoother and cooler than ever before. Downloaded all my Google Photos into albums on the BlackBerry, and using Amazon Prime Music instead of Google Play Music for streaming. Have new BeMaps Pro instead of actual Google Maps. Don't miss anything, and I have an Android and a tablet for Netflix.

    And guess what? Skype runs perfect.

    I'm happier not fighting sluggish Android runtime 4.2 now

    Downloaded the new Skype and I was getting double notifications. The app lags. I don't get notifications of new messages. I've deleted it and rebooted my Passport. Reinstalled it and now it won't Sign in. I've deleted and downloaded android version same. I even loaded the apk provided here. Still won't sign in.

    Skype has had a major outage today - we also haven't been able to get it to work on our PC's and Mac.

    I can now sign into Skype (9.30pm UK), but still no notifications, and very iffy whether it will make a call or not (we have been trying to test call each other).

    Thankfully, this morning's clients are the few who still use BBM!

    I have a constant ~20% CPU usage since the last update and it's draining my battery...

    Succesfully downgraded Skype from an old backup. Seems to work again, at least no more bogus notifications. Hoping a fixed version will appear some time.

    Using Passport.
