I got my new Kindle HD 7" yesterday. I downloaded the SKYPE app. This was the main reason that I upgraded from the original Kindle Fire. I did a Skype session this afternoon with my daughter-in-law and grandbaby this afternoon. Worked wonderful! I had no problems whatsoever getting it working. I already had a Skype account that I used on my desktop computer. Logged in. D-I-L called and I answered with video... was wonderful. Good quality picture. She sent me photos via Skype at the same time that we were video chatting. They came through just fine. A really great App and for me, it was worth getting the Kindle Fire HD. Thanks, Amazon and Skype. Now I can Skype with them no matter where I am (as long as I can get wifi).

Those of You having issues with the preinstalled version of Skype on Your Kindle HD, try uninstalling it and then reinstall from this App store. My camera wouldn't initiate until I did this. Once reinstalled the app works great. Video Quality is excellent. Remember, that the quality of video is dependent on your internet connection, and the quality of Your contacts webcam. This app is great. And I think My new Kindle kicks butt.
