I'm a grandmother who's children live in Europe and I love to Skype them with the tablet as I can show them around my house etc., When it works its great but I have found that after closing it and trying to use it again say the next day, it won't sign me in and I have to uninstall it and reinstall it to get it to work again. Well thats a pain to do each time. I downloaded the app from Google play but would like to know if there is an app somewhere else that would work better for Skype. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
I think we all have some problems with skype and some will be down to the tablet but a lot are also down to skype. I had problems with the picture to begin with but discovered it was my old cam on the laptop plus lots of feedback. Then tried with an hp touchpad and it worked better although sound slightly worse. Funny enough i have the problem you have with the touchpad in that it's a flaff to get it working again, but it could be that i'm running off same wi-fi. Will need to get one of my friends to fully test. However if you look around the forum you will find various people with suggestions and i found the link below with other users on the older tablet. Certainly the move to Ice cream sandwich also meant that skype and tablet were out of sync again. i've got this newer version of tablet with ics and downloaded from web but if that is not working for you then try the link below which suggests various downloads of skype which might be older but may work for your circumstances. The asian download may be one to try. ICS is still fairly new and what doesn't work one day may work the next. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Skype-Video-Calling/forum/Fx1DBIDSXCYCEJH/Tx3Q2SD2A7IBYGV/1/ref=cm_cd_fp_ef_tft_tp?_encoding=UTF8
