Skype Available for 3 in Ireland, Italy, and Australia

Over the last few years, Skype has proven to be a very useful application, particularly when you don’t want to use your plan minutes. Unfortunately, there are many network providers who will block these kind of services to charge the customer (you and I) as much as possible. Thanks to the efforts of many of our devs, the issue has been solved for many providers in many different countries. This time, XDA member dawmuz brings us this hack that will allow Skype for Android devices to work on the Hutchinson 3G network in Ireland, Australia, and Italy. The dev states that it is very simple to apply (no adb or pushing required), just install it and call away.

Are you on the 3 network outside of UK?
Got an android phone and can’t avail of your 4000 free skype minutes p/m as there is no Skype on 3 apk available where you are?

As you might know, an official 3Skype apk is only available on 3UK, which I have attached should anyone need it (it only works in the UK).

There is no Skype on 3 apk here in Ireland and, as far as I know, no app in Oz, Italy, Sweden, Austria…and wherever else Hutchinson 3G operates!

You can find more information in the application thread.

I/O Summary: Google Cardboard Virtual Reality

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
