I feel like even with Skype pulling the Smart TV App, I don't think it will hurt them too bad. For the most part, I don't think too many costumers use this. Otherwise Skype would never be getting rid of it. For the people who do use the Smart TV App, they can get this at other places than Skype. When it comes down to it though, if it was being used by a lot of consumers then they wouldn't be done with it.

Re: Skype
True..

Personally, i just don't have the likeness for Skype. Not saying I would never use it, but more than likely I'd use another way of videochatting before I resorted to Skype. I just think it's one of those things that I just never got into.

Re: Skype
As long as you're willing to sign a 2-year contract with a carrier, you can usually get an iPhone for cheap or even (if it's an outdated model) free.

Re: Skype
@dlr: Not to specifically attribute this to you, but it is common for mobile apps to run slower than desktop/laptop solutions simply because people reboot / turn off their mobile devices (especially phones) far less than they do their desktops and laptops.

Re: Skype
@dlr5288 I would say it also depends on the hardware you using for skype... as it seems with constant updates skype demand latest and greatest hardware to work properly... it like never ending upgrade...

Re: Skype
I just ended up needing to use Skype on my phone to call into a podcast, because my Skype desktop app stopped letting me log in. The folks on the other end said I sounded clear, but as soon as I got an incoming call, Skype dropped out ... I definitely prefer FaceTime for mobile - will try to stick to my desktop for future Skyping!
