Since the release of Windows Phone 8, people rightfully want Skype. And now they got it, albeit in a pre-release, which in our folk translation is read as «beta», and this is a beta version.

We’ve previously given some advice to people who had battery problems, and now we can fully confirm one of them: Skype. No, it doesn’t actually happen often, as this is the first time we’ve encountered this issue since Skype hit the Store a few weeks ago.

The problem arose when we were updating some contact details and then forced to sync our Microsoft account in Settings (while holding it, press Sync). The only problem was that she wouldn’t stop… ever.
