I have already found a few things they should change so I wrote an email to them:
“on iPhone 3g needs a lot improvement!
Here are things you should change and I also would like to know whether they are in the plans:
-Support of Skype2Skype and ICQ2ICQ calls also on Edge and on 3G also being sensible and working after shaping got intact: The contract of T-Mobile Germany e.g. says that in Complete M tariff, speed is slowed down to ISDN speed if more than 500 MB is used per month! Original Skype works fine on 64k ISDN lines, so please support it, too!
-Seeing of money balance for SkypeOut
-Seing in contact list who is on ICQ and who is on Skype. I have huge contact lists on both messangers and many are also on both! This makes things very uncompfortable
-Transferiing message history of conversations done on Fring when starting WIndows SKype (IM+ for Skype does this for example! : http://www.shapeservices.com/en/products/details.php?product=skype&platform=iphone)
-Seeing the user details of ICQ and the User Profile of Skype
Thanks in advance! Sincerely, Joerg Droege “
fring also made a video introducing fring for the iPhone3G in a video, watch it!:
Before I start this post, let me assure you that I have reported the problems (bugs) to both, Logitech and Joost over a year ago and sent an update to them. Joost didn’t reply and Logitech replied they will send it to the developers but it most likely won’t be fixed as there is no interest from the usership to fix what Logitech/Joost broke over a year ago.
The issue is that the media keys (play, next, previus, play, etc) of Logitech keyboards no longer work in Joost for Windows. Well, it used to work but doesn’t anymore.
But this is not important anymore as Joost moved to a browser plugin instead, the client for Windows is no longer available for download and also the blog is down with the error “forbidden”.
Logitech released recently a new Logitech QuickCam software which is supposed to fix a lot of issues with auto focus for HQ cameras of logitech, Skype issues, etc.
One thing that annoys me always – I guess you know it as a reader of my blog – is removed features that were useful. Logitech did this here by removing echo cancellation because they say it’s no longer needed. as “most instant messanger” have already have echo cancellation.
Well, what if you use some software that relied on this feature? Well, then you are doomed….
I am pretty much sure, most, especially old users or users like from the first day like myself, will not use the new “hip” huge Skype 4 view but the classic one instead which means all the redesign the Skype team did was a …. flush down the toilet action.
