Skype for Android

Skype has wasted no time in fixing the recently-found security flaw in Skype for Android. Today’s update to the app fixes the security flaw, while bringing new features to Android users who aren’t on Verizon.

Skype for Android now finally supports 3G calling, a feature that has been available to Verizon Android users for quite some time now. Now you can make Skype calls no matter where you are, on any carrier you want. Keep in mind that those 3G calls will use up some of your data plan. So, the calls will be free, and probably sound better than a regular phone call, but it’ll mean you have less data to play with. Still, 3G Skype calling has been missing on Android for quite some time, and it’s nice to see that it’s finally here for everyone.
