  1. The reviews for this are horrible. A lot of folks are having issues with the other person on the line hearing them.

    Very nice. Now why is Google taking so long to update all of their apps to iOS 7?


  3. The Skype app has been showing adds since a couple of updates now. I must say, I find this very cheap and lame of Skype. They used to be great, but now the app is full of stuff I don’t want to see + the video calls are not at all stable compared to facetime calls when using 3G. They should really fix this, because it’s such a great service, and I even used to buy skype credit for 3G phone calls to other countries etc. but since these adds and restrictions with the ‘free’ version… Why..?
