Although a great move from Skype bringing in optimized display for Bigger screens but the reviews on Play Store are really bitter on the new android application .
A Samsung Galaxy 10.1 Tab user reports :
After recent update(yesterday), it doesnt allow me to use my front camera.
Another User reports :
The app freezes rather often on Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. Lack of portrait mode is really irritating. Apart from that, all features seem to work fine.
Adding to bitter reviews of Skype Android Application, a Kindle Fire HD 8.9 user writes :
Can’t sign in on Kindle Fire HD 8.9
Skype has crashed when I try to sign and asks if I want to exit or sign in again. If I choose sign in it hangs at the loading animation. The one on the Amazon store works fine, but I want the new tablet interface.
