Good things come to those that wait..

November was a busy month for Samsung Galaxy S users here in Ireland.  We finally got the upgrade to Android 2.2 (Froyo) and that fixed a couple of annoying issues.

The first issue was with Dropbox.  For whatever reason, Dropbox refused to sync over the 3G/HSDPA network.  This was not a Samsung issue as I also had the same problem on my HTC Hero.  After upgrading to Froyo, this issue magically disappeared.

The second issue was with Skype.  Skype refused to work on the Samsung Galaxy S under Android 2.1.  It would install, try to start and continuously refuse to sign in.  It was very annoying, but yet again, this upgrade to Froyo solved that issue and Skype now works fine.

Good news reached me yesterday that Autodesk have finally decided to support the Android platform.  They are going to release their Sketchbook Express (free) and Sketchbook Mobile (paid) apps for Android 2.1 and above.  Now that Autodesk are finally supporting Android, perhaps they will release the excellent AutoCAD WS application also.
