The long awaited for Skype for Andriod is finally here. You can download this app directly from the Skype for Mobile website.

Regretfully for me Dave, my version of Android will still not allow me to run Skype. If like me you have a Samsung Galaxy S phone you will need to wait for the official release of the next operating system (Froyo) before it can handle this App. An unofficial version is in circulation but has caused problems for some so I'll be waiting a bit longer.

Sorry to hear that Trev, I'm sure Samsung will catch up shortly. If you need Skype, try installing Fring on you Galaxy. Fring has the ability to link to Skype so you may be able to use that until you can get your O/S upgraded.

Hi to all,
i have running this app on a Sony Ericson Xperia X10 mini pro and it runs well on Android 2.1 .
BUT when you use it you have to be sure that your battery is good loaded because this one
sucks like hell the power out of the cells.
If i like to write only via Skype i use mostly a mulimessenger website .
it is the one of IMO.IM
this one handles MSN, AIM, Yahoo, Skype and some more common messengers.

I use Trillian for Andriod for my Multi IM accounts. While it's still in Beta it's free so give it a try. It has good memory management also. http://www.trillian.im/learn/tour-android.html
