    The current title of the thread has a tendency to mislead the reader. It reads "Skype on Z10 working [Official OS 10.0.10.738]"

    I think it would have been more appropriate to read "Developer got Skype to work, still not available officially". No hopes would have been raised if this was the case.

    Clicking the Skype notification opens the app. It's an Android port, so it isn't really integrated the way Whatsapp and others are. It's more like Google Talk.

    funny because I can actually have a a decent and timely conversation on whatsapp via the Hub without opening the app. . .not the case with twitter and facebook. . .hope skype's notifications integration is at least quick. . .

    That's because whatsapp is native and built in with the hub.

    Skype will not be.

    Also, I have no issue tweeting constantly and using Facebook (hardly anymore) from the hub without any issues.

    What is the point of telling this crap when you are not sharing the .bar file?

    The million dollar question that is not being answered. I was always taught if you don't have enough to share...don't flaunt it.

    Hi there!

    I just saw the post of Skype being available for the Q10 or Dev C. The first thing I did was get the .bar and install on my Z10.

    *drum roll sound fx* IT WORKS!

    Bug found:

    When you are in a Skype conversation and you receive a normal call, you can answer the normal call. Here's the problem. When you end your normal call Skype freezes, screen turns black and crashes.

    ---

    Lets clear things up;

    - Why I wont share the .bar file
    I wont because I dont feel comfortable doing this as this might ruin my bussiness relationship with certain people.
    I dont understand why people are calling me greedy and such. Image this happening to your own products.

    - How?
    I did not use Sachup or Dingleberry. And I am not going to tell how I did do it as I promised a BlackBerry employee to keep this trick to myself. Again, I dont want to ruin my bussiness relationship over a simple file.

    And some questions which were asked. (General Skype questions mostly)

    - Does it integrate with the Hub?
    It does. It has its own Skype icon in the Hub. Also when you open a conversation from the Hub the conversation view in Skype is opened.

    - Does it integrate with the Contacts?
    - It kinda does. Skype contacts wont be shown as seperate contacts like Facebook and Twitter. But there is a seperate Skype list item where it shows your username. On the Dev Alpha C (or Q10) it's not grayed out; when you click on it , it will open Skype up with the appropriate profile.

    - Does it work when the app is closed?
    Yes. Both calls and chat messages. When you receive an message it pops up in the Hub, and when you are called the Skype App will be openend. You do have to be signed in (obviously).

    Some screenshots;

    I'll upload some more if requested.
    SWEET!
