    Version doesn't work on my Lumia 1020 at all. I get a splash screen after about 25 seconds of 'loading' until the screen times out. And then back to home screen. WP8.1 ** without cyan in the UK.

    Since installing the latest version, my HTC 8X rear camera does not work, the front camera is always inverted and that's if the camera loads, on occasion is doesn't load at all. The only way round this is for me to uninstall Skype. Reinstalling then results in the same problem. No camera is not an option and kind of defeats the object of having skype. Hopefully an update version will resolve.
