    no worky

    Doesn't really work well, my BT headset and aliph jawbone icon, works great with my phone (iphone) but with the skype app, there is so much delay between the headset and phone and then phone and outgoing. Not really sure what the problem is.

    Honest question..

    Is the BT support worth the ads they've now put into the app?

    Just add something, even my accounts with .10$ on them or the free 1 euro from last year don't have the ads. IMHO I actually don't LIKE the calling UI, it was better before at least on the iphone when it mimic'd the iphone call UI. Now, it is very much like the IOS ipad UI, which for regular users becomes a bit cumbersome.

    works great with my bluetooth headset. Certainly worth the trade off of adds, but I pay the 3 per month for unlimited US calling anyway.

    I agree that I'm not a fan of the new UI but it's just so much better now. More responsive and much less buggy. I use skype daily and it has crashed on ne much less.

    Skype and Bluetooth

    I'm getting about a 3-4 second delay on audio using Bluetooth on my iPhone

    an unnecessary app I think, I basically use bluetooth when driving car, or sometimes without computer at hand. I cannot play Star Trek: Infinite Space even using bluetooth device. Hope it will be like internet.

    Having bluetooth for the device is a nice change, I'll often use skype when driving but when trying to call an international number or other skype users, as the call quality of skype to skype is much better than skype to international landline.

    That said, I don't like some of the changes, the new call start/end screen, I think the buttons on the bottom are too small. WHY would they move away from something that was working just fine? Yes, it mimicked the iphone call screen a bit but I don't think apple dinged them or that people found that confusing?
