Great for chatting to your mates
by on August 20, 2012
Skype is set to get into Windows Phone in a big way soon, but for now it’s available as a decent app.
It’s a very easy app to use if you have a Skype account… if not, you’ll struggle to work out how to get started without a computer in front of you.
It takes a long time to load each time as you log in, but once that’s done you can chat with your friends using IM or video/voice methods.
It’s all incredibly easy to use, and takes advantage of the panorama UI to get you loads of information on one screen. The icons are also easy to use, making it a cinch to set up a voice or video call.
It’s not the most comprehensive app, as while you can make Skype voice calls to non-users, there’s no way to buy Skype credit through the app.
And there’s another big problem: no background running. What’s the point in the app if you can’t receive IM or chats when you’re not using the app in the foreground?
But if this is the start of Skype on Windows Phone, we’re onto a winner – download it now if you’re a dedicated Skype user and can live with limited functionality.
