Skype for iPhone’s Confusing Settings

04 April 2011

Speaking of convoluted user interfaces, check out the Auto-Lock setting in Skype for iPhone:

Take a big breath, and read this slowly — “Don’t Auto-Lock” is “On”. Disabling Auto-Lock will prevent screen locking during a Skype call.

So, do I currently have Auto-Lock disabled by having this setting “On”? Or would I turn this off to disable the enabled “Don’t Auto-Lock”? Jeebus.

Why couldn’t these people have simply labeled this setting “Auto-Lock” and having the default setting to “Off”?
