With BlackBerry OS 10.2 making its way around the globe bearing an updated Android runtime, Skype decided it was a good opportunity to make an update available for its BlackBerry 10 app. Although the update screen on BlackBerry World does not provide a change log, the most obvious change you will notice right off the bat is the updated user interface. And it looks good!
As far as we can tell there have also been some other under-the-hood enhancements that make the app run a lot smoother when it comes to scrolling through contacts and long chat conversations. Voice and video seem to be a lot smoother now as well.
However, for some fishy reason, the app has yet to drop the "Preview" nomenclature. Only time will tell if Skype will one day make a native app for BlackBerry 10, but for now, it is working pretty darn well!
