Final version will be released sometime in April. For a Beta, it's really good. The UI is metro and works without a hitch. Made couple of video calls using the HTC Titan and the other party on their laptop could see me and hear me fine.

Do whatever you want to do man.

Found first issue. I have an subscription under my account. The app does not pick up on that and keeps telling me that I need to add skype credit on my account.

Also, when you use the dialler and try and dial a number, it says something along the lines of 'not available yet'. Looks like you can only do skype to skype audio/video calls atm via this app.

Do whatever you want to do man.

it doesnt work when you're not running the app - no push notifications, no background tasks, there is no list of 'online' users, and there is no warning about taking/making a call over 3g data... i think they need to add a few features prior to release.

i give it a 2/5

The old UI problem I have complained about many times: there is no indication where you can tap to get more options...

To filter online contacts only, tap "Contacts" and you will see a filter list.

I think this is alpha quality and should not be called beta, nor released as it is.
