    Anyone having problems with skype? I just downloaded it and signed in and it just restarts the app. Any idea whats wrong? Coincedently i get sign in authentication errors on aim, and my username and pw are perfect. Maybe they have something to do with eachother.

    I've seen a lot about Skype for tablets (which I have got). It doesn't work (when you launch it momentarily shows the splash screen, and then dies). I contacted Skye support and they were quite clear that they have no software available which would allow Skype to access their system using a domestic wi-fi router. May happen but not specific about when.

    I am using the Acer Iconia A500. Just got it and loaded skype. I wanted to video confrence/call some one and it does not work for me. When I press the call button on the bottom left it crashes the system not just the app. If i use the chat feature is does not crash but I have not been able to connect to anyone with it. So from reading this I cannot use the tablet on wifi for call people and see them and them me? What app allows me to use the forward facing camera for call?

    At the moment I don't think Skype video is supported for tablets (I certainly dont have the video call option on here) but I use Google Talk for forward facing video chat and it works fine. Certainly crashes less than skype anyway!
