Microsoft warns users about fake Skype app

by: Gary SimsJuly 19, 2012

by: Bams SadewoApril 27, 2012

The ubiquitous VoIP and instant messaging app Skype, available on Android since October 2010, has received quite the update today. Available to download on Google Play, the new version brings a new instant messaging view, video rotation support for more Android devices, as well as faster start up times.
