Skype for Windows Phone Adds Location Sharing
Skype today announced an update to its app for Windows Phone devices that introduces location sharing for the first time. Skype version 2.22 is compatible with Windows Phone 8 and Windows Phone 8.1.
However, my opinion about the app is based purely on the fact that I've not had any issues reading PDFs. Sure, there some features that could be added, but when I compared the Adobe reader on my old WP7.5 to the native PDF reader on WP8, I had a hard time seeing how people were claiming Adobe reader on the old OS was better. Even when I compare the MS's PDF reader and Adobe's, I don't find much that makes it that much better, other than the fact that Adobe does load large files much quicker.
