    Default Lately

    Hello,

    I know that the adverb "lately" matches perfectly well with the Present Perfect, thus:

    I have not studied much lately.


    But, can we use this adverb with a Present Simple?

    I do not switch onto Skype very often lately, I am a bit busy.

    Would this last sentence be correct?

    Thank you.
