    So I saw that Droid commercial showcasing some popular apps and noticed a skype app. I've searched for it many times before and just though that there was no skype app on the android market, but apparently there is. Whenever I search for it I can't get it to come up though. Anybody having this problem or know of a fix?!

    I did the manual install of 2.1 a few months back btw, in case that makes a difference.

    I have it and found it in the market but I am running 1.5 still. It is the skype mobile app from Skype. I looked on androlib.com and you should be able to download it from there.

    Yes I have it also, but I am running 1.5. I found mine in the market place. There should be a version for 2.1 since the droid and other android phones run 2.1 with the skype app.

    You'll need to find a link to download the .apk. Someone had posted it in another thread, IF the link above does not work for you.

    Because you uploaded a firmware that hasn't been released for the phone yet, they are not expecting you to have it when searching the Market. That's why a lot of apps, not just Skype, will not show up until the Eris gets the real 2.1.

    I was thinking this thing was going to be a huge thing, but it doesn't seem like many people use the app, let alone have it.

    Alright, I'll try the download, but I've never manually installed an apk before. What exactly do I do with the file once I've downloaded it?!
