Skype for Android Updated and Still No 3G

Skype is by far one of the most popular VoIP services in the world. Its call quality and ability to use features like video chat and more is bar none, among the best there is. It looks like the recent addition of Android to their line up is getting an update, which was pointed out by XDA member irisiris. There is a problem though, the app works on 3G but only outside of the US. The previous version was patched and it works rather well on US 3G carriers. But current Skype users will have to wait for someone to crack it if they want to upgrade.

It is too bad that US carriers can carry such a heavy weight on a software manufacturer and as such, companies like Skype are forced to block things out. Hopefully, the app will be patched soon, so that people can enjoy it using their data plans. Comments and suggestions about the whole thing are always welcomed.

For those who cannot find SKYPE in market as usual.

Here is 14th December SKYPE release
version :1.0.2

You can find more information in the application thread.

Pinsy Brings Social Sketching To Your Watch & Phone

Did you watch Apple's VP draw on his wrist during the Apple Watch announcement and wonder "why can't my Wear watch do that?" In typical XDA fashion, one enterprising forum member has brought similar functionality to Android Wear with a twist; it works on phones and watches alike, with other platforms on the way! The app is called Pinsy, and its release debut is a strong proof of concept with plenty of room to grow. You may remember the developer behind this project, XDA...

Should You Get Wear? Wearer’s Practical Observations

Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it.
