    skype and fring?

    hello everyone ,

    i've tryed using skype and fring on my ziio and both folce close , i've also tryed installing older versions but that got me no where .

    skype : text chatting works fine , but as soon as i make or recieve a call it logs out.
    fring : as soon as i make or recieve a call ( audio and video ) the app is closed .

    I get nowhere with SKYE, after I entered the User name and password, it just sits there,
    I install Google Map, Lattitude, all saying I have to set current Location in System setting, which I did.
    This gadget is not good, can be a DOA as many people said.

    <span style="font-family: Arial; line-height: 5px; font-size: 2px;">I haven't personally tried this yet but a quick google on "android 2. skype not working" brought up some pages on the same issue. Not only with Ziio. <a rel="nofollow" href="]Here's[/url] one from the skype forum. Please note that these are third party applications and there is no guarantee that these apps will work perfectly on the device.

    Glad to hear it's working. Is this the Skype Lite Beta .0.0.5.

    @ ?erictai :

    as far as i know skype beta is "skype lite "? which needs a phone connection to make calls ,? if you were able to download a beta version of the actual skype app please post a link to it here .
    orget about skype , how about fring and nimbuzz ? none of them works ! ... and why is skype on the zii space if it doesn't work ? i thought apps on the zii space and zii store were verified to work with the ziio .

    Try this link for SKYPE Lite Beta:

    <a rel="nofollow" target="_blank" href=","],[/url]

    The site has a lot of apps, but not all work for the Zii, e.g. anything Google and GPS related, the unit does not provide your location even when you are WIFI connected.

    @ ?erictai:

    it does work on ziio however for text chat only , it cannot recieve or make phone calls as it depends on having a "phone " connection which the ziio lacks .. the newer version of skype does work on the ziio for text chatting as well , the problem is voice chat isn't working .
