    How important is Skype on BlackBerry 10 for you?

    I wanna know how many people, and how much these people that do, want Skype on BlackBerry 10? It's obvious it's one of the "big name" apps that every OS needs. That's a given. But truthfully, that may be the only reason I really want Skype to come to BlackBerry World. I don't see myself ever using Skype on my phone. I rarely use it on the computer and I'm on here all the time.

    So I want to know, would you use Skype on your Z10 or Q10? Do you see a use for it, or do you want Skype to be available to just be able to say it's there?

    I use Skype when playing a games on my computer, which isn't very often.

    Other than that, I want it on BB10 so everyone can just shut up. It's purely a novelty to me.


    I kinda feel like that people who claim that they use it 24/7, don't actually use it that often. No Skype is just cannon fodder. Once it comes, Instagram will be that app.

    Not important because there are other options available. However, it would be a nice addition to have.

    Also, Skype has a huge userbase. It would help to bring them on board to BlackBerry 10 if it were available.

    I think it is somewhat important especially as a lot of enterprises are starting to use Skype a lot. As well it would help to market the phone because most people believe that app world sucks and I am not saying its amazing but it does get better every week. just a side note any idea when all of the apps that were announced at BB Jam America last year are coming(temple run) and also is oovoo still coming and all of the bank apps that are actually more important than Skype to most people.

    I don't need it, nor do I really want it. If not for the fact that it will help draw users to the platform I would be raging at people who keep bringing it up. With the except of OP of course

    I don't need it or use it. I just want it to come to BB10 so that it will show that more big vendors care about BlackBerry.

    I've never Skyped before, so personally I really don't care. I would like to see Skype AND Netflix in full native BB10 form though, just so people can find the next thing to gripe about.
    BB then, now, forever!

    I would like to have Skype on my Z10. It would be handy to Skype with others while out and about, and when travelling.

    Skype would be useful, i do use it voice only to family and friends to their computers/phones its cheap compared to normal calls, and if Blackberry wants to
    be up with the other OS, it needs Skype, it beat windows phone to UK BBC I Player a good move, i have several devices with Skype voice/video calls, all discontinued now
    but had Skype in 2010, as for i dont use or care about Skype that could be applied to BB messenger/ whats app and many more, every one has different needs, if your rivals have a service/app which is in demand then you provide it or loose them, i moved to Blackberry Z10 as it is the last phone to offer flash player support, and provided BBC I Player, two main reasons i went for Z10, had windows phone offered these services i would have bought one, i buy a device that has the features that i need, there is no room for loyalty to any maker that does not keep up, now the Q10 is on sale, will Z10 receive the next update?, or be like the playbook BB10 update its coming, when?, keep your customers informed
    you need them not the other way round,
