Hello there fellow developers. I recently made quite a progress in developing skype for WP7.
I want to share my current progress with you, so maybe someone will want to join this little project, which, in future will be released for free, and probably with source code .

I'm not designer, as you will see from the screenshots, but, if you are, and want to join this effort in making skype, contact me asap.

I'm not really a designer myself, but I'm pretty experienced with WPF/Silverlight programming, and I'm always up for a bit of open source work.

PM me if you want me to help out.

I second that.

I don't have much free time but i'd love to contribute to this project.
I've got some experience in Silverlight/WPF programming, so there should be several points where i can help out.

this is great it should remain a sideload project though? Skype probably would not like it, or will they?

Anyway very very usefull and nice idea! If I would have some time I would love to help. Or at least test and bugfix and **** I'm not an educated designer, I'm just a perfectionist and hate ugly apps

I made a quick mockup about how the message thing can look.

I thought about just having 2 pivots or panorama pages with a contact list like you have now select a contact and swype t the left to chat with this person swipe to the right click a diffrent contact now it loads the chat of that contact. So that you will always have just 2 pivot pages, otherwise you might get lost if you have multiple people chatting at the same time

I made a mockup of how your conversations can look in metro style. Idk if you like it. I made it quickly the icons etc. are but ugly but just to get an idea. All the images are just copy and pasted from skype and wp7 haha so it was just pretty simple and wont pass the marketplace (not with the skype header at least).
It very similar to what you already made with the contactlist and just a logical next step of your work. I could code the layout for it for you ,but I dont think its that hard to code this design or to get these images.

(Ow and yeah the credits in the sample text is towards you ofcourse, great job, great project man!)
