Update released for Skype: Still no video calling

| December 29, 2010 | 8 Replies

A new 1.5 version of Skype for Symbian has been released. There are no massive changes to be seen, including the continued omission of video calling which to me is indicative of the fact that the 2.0 version is likely to be the announcement Skype is supposedly holding off until CES. Hopefully newer versions of skype intergrate video calling in addition to doing some major pretty-ing up the interface. As is, it’s not nearly as fun to use of a client as the iOS or Android versions.

Not sure if it’s my mobile or a problem with the app but I’m experiencing random freezes and crashes when trying to load old conversations. Tell us what you think of the update below.

Rant Time:

Nokia need to get their Ovi Store 2.0 auto-update feature up and running ASAP, this whole hunting around for updates thing is just not gonna fly anymore. When the Ovi Store is opened, there should be a badge for Application updates with the number of available updates for different programs much like the Apple App store. Users select the updates that they want and then go about their business browsing the rest of the store offerings while their updates download and install in the background.
