Skype 2 Available For Other Devices!

Well, it really didn’t take too long. It was only yesterday that Skype 2 with video became available on a certain number of devices. This has caused our hacking community to wonder why the good people at Skype are doing this. So, in the spirit of our beloved community, the app was cracked open and much to our surprise, an array containing the names of the devices in which the app would be usable was found. Needless to say, once the culprit for preventing things from happening was found, it took only a few more minutes to prepare a fix for the app, so that the desired video calling would work on other devices as well. Courtesy of XDA moderator and Recognized Developer pulser_g2, we now have a working version of Skype 2 on the Samsung Galaxy S 2. According to the dev, the app should work on other devices as well. I can personally confirm that it works over 3G on the EVO 4G.

Please try it out in your devices and report back if it works for you.

Fancy video skype anyone?

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
