BlackBerry 10 Skype app is coming soon, but will be ported from the Android app

0. phoneArena 07 Feb 2013, 15:38 posted on

Skype has said that it is working closely with BlackBerry to make sure that the Skype for Android app works perfectly on BlackBerry 10 which might not put a smile on the face of those who rely on Skype and have or will be purchasing a BlackBerry Z10; Android apps ported over into the BB10 OS do not look or work as perfectly as some might hope...

Better than nothing. I dont see a problem with this as long as it works as good as it does on Android.

I haven't had any trouble with it on Android. It manages my group conversations nicely and I can make voice calls on it fine. Cant speak for video calls, never had a need for it honestly.

I hope it's only temporary situation. Native apps are always better than an Android port.

Blackberry needs to have as many (or at least the most used ones) cross-platform Messaging apps in their BB10 ecosystem if they want BB10 to be a success.
